A special issue of Icarus brings together papers about Pluto system science. In 2015, NASA’s New Horizons mission conducted the first ever reconnaissance of the Pluto system. Partly fueled by this flyby, the Pluto system has also been a subject of intense observational and
theoretical study. If you are working on a paper related to the Pluto system, you are invited to select it for inclusion in the special issue on the Pluto system in the New Horizons era.
Submitted papers must be written in English and describe original research which is neither published nor currently under review by other journals. Review papers will be considered only with prior invitation by the editors. Author guidelines for preparation of manuscripts can be found at:
