Celestial Mechanics special issues  
A Springer  International
Journal of Space Dynamics




No deadline is fixed, but papers are expected to be submitted no later than a fixed date to allow enough time for the refereeing/revision procedures.


(when submitting the paper, please click on the corresponding “special issue” key)
A special issue is not a Proceedings book!
Papers submitted should have the same
level as papers published in ordinary issues of the journal.
Articles should not
  duplicate papers already published or which the author intends to send for publication elsewhere.

"Communications", "Short notes", "Progress Reports" and "Extended Abstracts" cannot be accepted for publication.

Papers whose contents are reviews of recent publications should not be submitted without the previous agreement of the editors. They wil be considered only in exceptional cases.

Instructions for Authors

All papers will be reviewed by referees appointed by the journal editors and in agreement with the journal's rules.

At the end of the refereeing the paper can be
                  NOT ACCEPTED
                  RETURNED FOR REVISION

Papers for which we do not have, timely an accepted final version can remain in the process of edition for publication (if the author agrees and if eventually accepted) in a later issue of the journal.

Electronic Supplementary Material
The journal accepts electronic multimedia files (animations, movies, audio, etc.) and other supplementary files to be published online along with an article (see the journal web site for instructions.)

The electronic edition of CM&DA is available to investigators in more than 5,500 institutions. CM&DA is indexed in Astronomical and Mathematical bibliographical bases and is available to investigators from both communities. A paper in a special issue can be considered as an occasion to introduce the treated problems in a more general way, going deeper in the dynamical concepts and stressing the points of importance in the construction of the studied dynamical models. It is also an occasion to publish mathematical details not accepted in journals interested only in publishing results and phenomenological aspects.
