Special Issue in Quantum Reports: Exclusive Feature Papers of Quantum Reports
The many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics (MWI) solves the measurement problem, avoids action at a distance and indeterminism, and does not contradict empirical evidence. Why, then, it is not in the consensus? This Special Issue will aim to promote the ongoing debate on the foundations of quantum mechanics by dealing with the major open questions regarding the MWI and its alternatives.
The issues to be discussed include:
- What is the ontology?
- Who am I, what is our world?
- What is the structure of the physical universe?
- Does self-location uncertainty solve the probability problem?
- Can the Born rule be derived?
- What are advantages of alternative interpretations?
- Do we need to modify the MWI of QM in view of field theory, string theory, etc.?
Prof. Dr. Lev Vaidman
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.

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. Quantum Reports is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
