Special Topic: Extrasolar Planets

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


Today, it is estimated that our galaxy contains at least as many planets as stars. Hundreds of the planets have been detected, and a few thousand others are under investigation. Observations have shown that planets are not only common but also extremely diverse, with our solar system being just one example of this diversity and perhaps even a rather unusual one. These observations offer an opportunity to answer basic questions about planet formation and the physical processes occurring in exoplanet interiors. In this special topic, the most recently discoveries of exoplanet in theoretical and observational 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 Extrasolar Planets for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Extrasolar Planets” 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 Extrasolar Planets.
