Topical Collection in Universe: Nobel Prize 2020: Selected Articles on Black Hole and General Relativity
This year, Universe marks its 5th year after its inception. As Editor-in-Chief who leads it since its birth, I'd say that, so far, it performed well in an overly saturated arena with several well established and renown journals. It is so because of the exceptional quality of its Advisory and Editorial Boards, the competence and relentless dedication of its Editorial Staff, and, of course, Your efforts as authors and reviewers.
So, it is just time to celebrate with all of You such achievements with this commemorative Special Issue which, hopefully, aims to collect high-profile articles from the forefront of the research in the fields covered by the journal: Cosmology, General Relativity and Gravitation (both theoretical and experimental), Field Theory, Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, Mathematical Physics, Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Astronomy. All articles will be rigorously peer-reviewed, often by (many) more than 2 referees, and the final decision, not rarely taken by myself, is never the mere arithmetic of the positive and negative reports. After a few days from acceptance, the articles will be edited, proofed and immediately published with the superb journal's layout offering advanced tools to track their visualizations and downloads.
Thank you for your attention.
With my best regards.
Prof. Dr. Lorenzo Iorio
