We are soliciting contributions on the rapidly evolving field of HMXBs and ULX sources, whose compact objects are neutron stars. Though new results are certainly acceptable, we are also asking for reviews summarizing the general knowledge on the subject, because standard reviews in this field are currently lacking. Both observational and theoretical papers are welcome. We hope that this volume will be an acute summary of the state of the field, describing what we already know from previous X-ray observations and what we hope to learn in the recent future. The structure and evolution of magnetic fields in these X-ray sources are also themes of enormous contemporary interest in the field. ULX sources are included because it is currently thought that these sources also harbor neutron stars accreting above the Eddington limit.

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. Galaxies 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 1400 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.
