Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The standard model of particle physics is a theoretical framework that describes the behavior of subatomic particles and their interactions. Despite its success in predicting the behavior of particles, the standard model has some limitations. It does not explain dark matter, the imbalance between matter and antimatter, or the hierarchy problem, which refers to the large discrepancy between the strength of gravity and the other fundamental forces. Supersymmetry is a proposed extension to the standard model that predicts the existence of additional particles. Supersymmetry could solve some of the limitations of the standard model. For example, it predicts the existence of a stable, weakly interacting particle that could be a candidate for dark matter. Supersymmetry could also help explain the hierarchy problem by canceling out the large quantum corrections to the mass of the Higgs boson. However, supersymmetry has not yet been experimentally observed, and its predictions are still being tested. Many scientists are working on experiments to search for evidence of supersymmetry. We welcome you to submit your work to this Special Issue.

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. Symmetry 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 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.
