La Encyclopedia of Cosmology, en cuatro volúmenes, es una gran obra de referencia, editada por los más importantes cosmólogos y respetados investigadores de la materia de todo el mundo. No hay concepto básico y seminal que no se haya incluido y, además, incluye se acompaña de una serie de materiales suplementarios como vídeos o simulaciones de computación numérica.

La mejor forma de ver el nivel de la obra es comprobar los nombres de los autores de los artículos, que aparecen aquí más abajo.
