Quantum gravity is expected to be important at Planck lengths, i.e., 10−33 cm. However, indirect effects might be observed in astrophysical phenomena, cosmological observations, and “in the lab” experiments. It is important to study such effects and design/predict experiments which will confirm the existence of a quantum theory of gravity. With gravitational waves providing a new window of observation to the physics of the Universe, we expect that gravitons or quantized gravitational waves will also be discovered. At this time, an issue devoted to quantum gravity phenomenology will be important.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
