Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 March 2022.
Interests: high-energy astrophysics; pulsars; neutron stars; multi-wavelength observations
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Stellar astrophysics is key to understanding the evolution of stars and planetary systems, understanding the formation of some of the most extreme objects, such as neutron stars and black holes, and tracing back the evolution of our universe, including the history of star formation in the first galaxies. Traditionally the most ancient branch in astronomy, stellar astrophysics has become a trait d’union to many other branches, from cosmology to planetology. In this Special Issue, we will focus on the role of stellar astrophysics in the global framework of modern astronomy, review the main achievements in stellar astrophysics, and outline the aims and strategies for future development in this crucial field.
This Special Issue will develop a number of subjects:
- The life cycle of stars;
- Brown dwarfs and hot jupiters;
- Endpoints of stellar evolution;
- Evolution of stars in binary systems;
- Planetary systems in the local galaxy;
- Stellar explosions, novae and supernovae, and stellar winds;
- Stellar magnetic fields;
- The most extreme objects in the universe, such as black holes and neutron stars;
- Stars in the early universe;
- Star formation across cosmic time;
- Stellar dynamics and the galactic structure;
- Star formation in starburst galaxies;
- Stellar associations—open clusters and globular clusters;
- Observational facilities and techniques;
- Multi-wavelength synergies;
- Stellar astrophysics with future facilities.

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.
