Special Topic: Dark Matter

The special topic calls for papers on Dark Matter and such papers will appear in Advances in Natural Science as a special column.

In the universe, dark matter is a type of matter hypothesized to account for a large part of the total mass in the universe. Dark matter cannot be seen directly by telescopes; evidently it neither emits nor absorbs light or other electromagnetic radiation at any significant level. Instead, its existence and properties are inferred from its gravitational effects on visible matter, radiation, and the large-scale structure of the universe. Dark matter plays a central role in state-of-the-art modeling of cosmic structure formation and Galaxy formation and evolution and has measurable effects on the anisotropies observed in the cosmic microwave background. Important as dark matter is thought to be in the cosmos, direct evidence of its existence and a concrete understanding of its nature have remained elusive. In this special topic, the most recently research result on dark matter will be reported.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Dark Matter for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Dark Matter” Special Topic, please go to http://www.cscanada.net. With your submission, please state clearly to the editor that your manuscripts are submitted to the Special Topic Dark Matter.
