From the Cosmos guidelines:

COSMOS invites fiction submissions for short stories of between 2,000 and 4,000
words in length. They should be literature first: well written pieces,
stylistically and imaginatively executed, and polished works. A story should
involve some element of science at its heart: whether a new technology, a
new idea, a different society or alternate reality, and based on scientific
premises, principles or possibilities. Characterisation is valued, as is a story
arc. We are, in short, looking for good science fiction, and we only consider
previously unpublished works.
