In nuclear theory, there is always a quest for possible extensions of the nuclear landscape and extending our knowledge to the limits of nuclear existence. In this study, we examine the stability and structural properties of a wide range of nuclei in super- and ultra-heavy region in a phenomenological semi-microscopic approach. we calculated the shell correlation energy, residual pairing correction energy, two-nucleon separation energy and two-nucleon energy gap for 3670 even?even nuclei along ?-stability line and two-neutron driplines in the ranges 70 ≤ Z ≤ 274 with 80 ≤ N ≤ 548 and 70 ≤ Z ≤ 212 with 126 ≤ N ≤ 548, respectively. To assure reliability and confidence of the new results in the ultra-heavy region, we extended the search space to include heavy and super-heavy nuclei. We report 83 double magic nuclei and address the predominance of proton and neutron magic numbers. Our calculations reproduced known results on nuclear magicity and present strong evidences on islands of stability and magic numbers in super- and ultra-heavy regions. We also address shifts in nuclear magicity along the nuclear landscape close to the ?-stability line and close to the neutron rich regions.In nuclear theory, there is always a quest for possible extensions of the nuclear landscape and extending our knowledge to the limits of nuclear existence.
