One of the fundamental properties of the heliosphere is the presence of solar wind structures and phenomena on a wide range of scales, and solar wind is an open system with free energy transfer from large to small scales. First, large-scale solar wind structures (such as ICMEs and CIRs with sizes at 1 AU more than 106 km) are born at the Sun and do not have enough time to modify significantly during the path to the Earth and thus contain information on structure and processes at the Sun. Second, small-scale solar wind phenomena (with sizes less than 104 km) are induced locally and give the opportunity to explore processes in plasmas where no collisions occurs between charged particles and walls of peculiar space laboratory. Finally, solar wind is the important agent which transfers disturbances from the Sun to the Earth’s magnetosphere and generates disturbances in the magnetosphere-ionosphere system, i.e., sudden modifications in the solar wind cause various space weather phenomena. The Special Issue will be devoted to recent progress in the physics of solar wind and heliospheric media, including results of actual missions providing new insights into the structure and origins of solar wind and solar corona, such as the Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter.
We invite contributions on all aspects of solar, helio-, and magnetosphere physics, starting from the solar corona, into solar wind, including the inner heliosphere, the Earth’s orbit, and beyond.

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.
