Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In physics, symmetry is synonymous with conservation law. This term refers to one or more quantities that remain unchanged during the evolution of a system and is applied to every area of Physics to denote fixed points in a discovery. For this reason, the search for symmetries in Physics represents a crucial point in the understanding of established theories, and their breaking sometimes involves a clue to the search for new theories. Other times, what we want to measure is precisely the asymmetries as variations due to changes affecting physical systems. From micro to macro, in theory or experimentally, this intimate relationship between Physics and symmetry represents the very soul of nature, and in this Special Issue, we will treat it from different points of view.

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.
