GRG Editor's Choice & Invited Reviews

© SpringerHighlight articles in General Relativity and Gravitation

This page has been moved to

In each volume of the journal, a few articles are marked as “Editor’s Choice”. The primary criterion is original, high-quality research that is of wide interest within the community. 

The journal also features two types of invited reviews: (i) detailed status reports addressed to experts and researchers who would like to understand the subject thoroughly (“Invited Review: State of the Field”), (ii) shorter reviews, about 10–20 pages, which summarize key ideas to the readership in other sub-areas of gravitational science (“Invited Report: Introduction to Current Research”).
