Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We commemorate the 110th anniversary of Ya. B. Zeldovich in the year 2024, and it provides us with a good occasion to discuss the development of his legacy in cosmoparticle physical studies of the fundamental relationship of cosmology and particle physics.

The trend in the modern development of particle physics leads beyond the standard model (BSM). BSM physics is needed for a physical basis of the now-standard cosmological model of an inflationary universe with baryosynthesis, dark matter, and dark energy. BSM models involve the extension of particle symmetry, which leads to numerous physical and cosmological consequences. The mutual relationship of the basis of modern particle physics and cosmology, as well as the nontrivial features of its indirect physical, cosmological, and astrophysical effects, is the subject of the present Special Issue. Such features involve, but are not reduced to, models of the very early universe and their observational signatures, physics of dark matter and its direct and indirect probes, as well as a wide range of BSM models and their effects.

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.
