Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Statistical models help us to understand the structure of systems or processes in various fields of engineering, natural sciences, and social sciences. One of the most important tasks in statistics is the development of methods and theories for building statistical models for datasets, which are approximations of the reality embodied in the observed data. In general, such models are not unique. For a given set of competing models, it is important to choose the best approximation model among them before performing statistical analysis.

Since data often exhibit complex structures, statistical models are expected to capture this complexity, which can further deepen our understanding of the underlying data-generating mechanisms and advance related fields in science and engineering. This Special Issue calls for newly developed statistical methods to model high-dimensional, complex data, especially methods based on entropy or information theory.

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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
