A magnetic monopole is a stable particle carrying magnetic charge, it is suggested by the symmetry of Maxwell's equations and appears in e.g. Grand Unification Theories. Originally it was proposed by Dirac in 1931 as a way to quantize electric charge: $e_0 g_0$ = $n\hbar c/2$, thus giving minimal Dirac charge $g_D$ = $68.5e$. Modern experiments focus on high ionization of a Dirac charge, while lower charge monopoles predicted by other theories are easy to be missed without a dedicated tracking and trigger setup.
In this work, an overview of the search for magnetic monopoles with Belle II detector is presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
