This Special Issue is dedicated to the conference: Compact Stars in the QCD Phase Diagram VII: https://www.csi.cuny.edu/academics-and-research/conferences/csqcd-vii
The CSQCD VII conference brought together astrophysicists and nuclear physicists to discuss how the new multi-messenger era in astrophysics can serve to constrain the equation of state of the matter inside neutron stars and help to identify viable phases for the star's interior, its transport properties, and evolution. These proceedings feature articles reflecting a special forum held at the conference on the ways nuclear physicists and astrophysicists can work together to tackle the most challenging problems in the overlapping areas of neutron stars and dense QCD, and how these efforts may serve to inform and guide preparations for future multi-messenger observations.
This Special Issue covers the following main topics:
- Equation of state and neutron star mergers
- Phases of dense quark matter
- External field effects on dense matter and neutron stars
- Transport in dense QCD and neutron stars
- Strangeness in compact stars
- Supernovae and high energy astrophysics of neutron stars and binary mergers

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.
