Special Issue "Seyfert Galaxies Astrophysics"
A special issue of Universe (ISSN 2218-1997).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
Carl Seyfert published, in 1943, his seminal paper about a handful of bright galaxies with anomalously wide emission lines. Today, an entire class of active galactic nuclei (AGN) has been named after him. Seyfert galaxies offer the possibility to study the physics of a wide variety of phenomena: accretion onto supermassive black holes, ejection of matter at relativistic speed either collimated (jets) or not (winds), and large-scale processes and feedback with the host galaxy. In the case of low redshift and bright objects, the study could reach a significant level of detail, so that it could serve as a benchmark for comparative studies on any other type of AGN.
The aim of the present Special Issue is to gather different point of views on these topics, in order to build a general and reliable picture of the nature of Seyfert galaxies.

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.
