Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Astronomy has traditionally relied on observations with photons (electromagnetic waves). In recent years, multi-wavelength observations have expanded our knowledge of the Universe far beyond approaches focussed on one particular waveband, e.g. solely radio, optical or X-ray. The development of new particle detectors and modern data analysis techniques have now opened-up a new domain, advancing our capability to probe physical processes and study astrophysical systems in great detail using non-photonic particles. Energetic non-photonic particles are often, but not exclusively, produced in violent astrophysical environments. They directly carry information about certain high-energy processes, such as subatomic interactions, that are not always within reach of photonic observations. It is therefore timely for us to gather together as researchers in high-energy astrophysics to explore and discuss the various emerging opportunities in the non-photonic particle domain, and the prospects with complimentary studies of photons, to probe astrophysical processes in new ways. 

We therefore propose a special issue in Universe, “Studying Astrophysics with High-Energy Cosmic-particles”. Our focus is the discussion of different aspects of studies of high-energy astrophysics, such as theory, phenomenological modelling, observation, data analysis and instrumentation using non-photonic and photonic means as an integral part studying the Universe. The scope of this special issue is not restrictive, and we welcome new ideas and approaches in addition to research conducted in a more canonical manner with proven techniques. Our goal is to bring together researchers with an interest in cosmo-particle astrophysics, to promote discussion towards the aim of advancing our understanding of the Universe.

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. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. 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.
