Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Whether neutrinos have mass remains an unanswered physics question beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Therefore, the research on neutrinos has always been a hot topic in fundamental physics. At the same time, the advancement of neutrino oscillation and property studies is now making neutrinos a unique probe for detecting nuclear energy from the Earth, the Sun, and the stars in the universe. We have already seen many efforts to build a real-time unbiased monitor for nuclear reactors' operation in power plants. In the future, researchers are even thinking of using neutrinos for tomography of the Earth's interior. The papers in this Special Issue will summarize the current progress and prospects of neutrinos in the above aspects.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
