Reminder and Extension for submission to an Advances in Space Research (ASR) Special Issue on "Magnetic Flux Ropes in Solar and Stellar Environments"

Annonce transmise par Brigitte Schmieder (LESIA & KU Leuven)


This is a reminder to contribute manuscripts for a special topical issue of Advances in Space Research
(ASR) entitled "Magnetic Flux Ropes in Solar and Stellar Environments". The proposed issue aims to
gather new results that highlight the fundamental physics of different sets of flux rope structures,
their genesis, escape of confinement, interaction, and relevance for solar/stellar environments.


This topical issue is not a conference proceeding but is open to all scientists who may have an
appropriate scientific paper related to the title of the issue. Attendees of Events E2.1 and D2.4, 43rd
COSPAR Scientific Assembly, are especially encouraged to submit their papers.
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically to To
ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, authors must
select “Special Issue: Sun - stars: Flux ropes” when they reach the "Article Type" step in the
submission process.


The general format for submission of papers can be found on the ASR Elsevier web site at


Only full-length papers will be considered for publication, subject to peer review by a minimum of
two reviewers. There are no page limits although the length of the paper should be appropriate for
the material being presented.


The deadline for submission has been extended to 27 November 2021; this is a “hard deadline”.
However, all papers are being and will be published electronically as soon as they are accepted. The
printed issue will be assembled within a reasonable time with late papers being printed in regular
issues of ASR. All articles will be typeset at no cost to the author; there is a charge for printing color
figures although there is no charge for color figures on the electronic version.


Dr. Brigitte Schmieder ( and Dr. Cristina H. Mandrini
( are the Guest Editors for this special issue.
Questions can be directed to Dr. Schmieder or Dr. Mandrini, or to the Co-Editor for ASR Special
Issues, Dr. Peggy Ann Shea (
