Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute papers to a new Special Issue of the journal Symmetry. Its primary topics of interest are chiral symmetry, its restoration in dense nuclear matter, and its impact on hadron properties, such as the neutron star and compact star structure, QCD processes in nuclear medium and nuclei, and quark gluon plasma phase (QGP).

Specifically, this Special Issue will address the nucleon, baryon and meson structure in free space, in nuclei, as well as in dense nuclear matter. For this Special Issue, we will organize an international workshop in mid-2024, serving as the proceedings; this will include the refereed contributions and new dedicated articles (refereed).

The information concerning the international workshop on this Special Issue will be announced in early 2024.

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. 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.
