Special Issue Women Physicists in Astrophysics and Cosmology

Dear Colleagues,

The physical approach to astrophysics and cosmology, both in theory and observations, and, in fine, to the understanding of the physics of the Universe allows going deeper into the identification, choice, and formulation of the problems to be solved and into the research programs to be performed, in going to essential and universal or key features, in finding solutions and/or performing innovative discoveries, in understanding and unifying them, finding the cross-correlations when possible, in introducing new knowledge and progresses in the field beyond current comprehension, and in opening new avenues of knowledge in the physics of the Universe.

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight excellent contributions of women physicists in modern astrophysics and cosmology and in the fruitful interplay between these domains. The objective and expected output of this Special Issue is thus double-valued or twofold at least. All fields in modern astrophysics and cosmology and their fruitful interplay are included: theory, observations, different methods, models, analytic studies, numerical simulations, as well as high energy astrophysics and black holes in all its mass ranges.

This Special Issue welcomes research papers of high current and fundamental interest as well as mini review articles in this active field. Contributions to the field from research groups led by women or in which women are the corresponding authors of the manuscripts are strongly encouraged. Manuscripts highlighting the role of leading senior women physicists in this field, their research contributions, leadership, and mentoring are also welcome.

This unique collection will offer, in this way, an exceptional opportunity to unify and bring together new research in this fascinating discipline performed by women physicists over the world, to promote their research, and provide high visibility to them.

We expect that this collection will also allow the apprehension of common universal features or properties within, at the same time, a wide range of diversity.

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome manuscripts to this Special Issue, and I look forward to receiving your manuscripts in this fascinating field.
