Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We comemorate in 2021 100th Anniversary of Andrei D. Sakahrov and UNESCO has nominated this year as the A.D. Sakharov year to celebrate his many achievement. “Cosmoparticle Physics as Cross-Disciplinary Science” is the last in the long list of Sakharov's publications, and thus, studies of the fundamental relationship of cosmology and particle physics continue his scientific legacy. Sakharov conditions in baryosynthesis, Sakharov oscillations in CMB or Sakharov enhancement in dark matter annihilation are only few examples of the great legacy of A.D. Sakharov in the modern theory of the Universe. This Special Issue aims to discuss the state-of-the-art in the development of Sakharov's legacy in studies of the mutual relationship of the basis of modern particle physics and cosmology, as well as the nontrivial features of its indirect physical, cosmological, and astrophysical probes. Such features involve but are not reduced to models of the very early Universe and their observational signatures, physics of dark matter and its direct and indirect probes, as well as to a wide range of models beyond the standard models of particle physics and cosmology and their effects.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
