    Journal of Systems Science and Complexity (JSSC) is a bimonthly journal to publish high-quality original and innovative papers on theories, methodologies and applications of systems science and complexity science, as well as insightful survey papers.

    It aims to encourage fundamental research of complex systems and complexity, and cultivate cross-disciplinary approaches to help people to understand the common themes that arise in natural, artificial, and social systems. It covers related complexity issues that have been placed at the forefront of many different research fields in science, technology and humanities, such as system optimization and management, complex and control systems, modeling and system biology, information and computer mathematics, etc. Complex systems are especially emphasized.

    All related original contributions with rigorous justifications and timely expository papers are welcome from all over the world. The manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with the following instructions.

    Manuscript Submission

    Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts in PDF or Postscript formats by electronic mail to the editorial office of JSSC: {} or submit them online on .

    Alternatively, hard copy submission in duplicate, with a cover letter indicating the name, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address of the corresponding author, may be sent to:

    Manuscripts are received for review with the understanding that the same work has not been published and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. 

    Manuscript Format

    The manuscript should be written in English with an informative abstract of no more than 200 words and 5 key words maximum.

    The manuscript should be concise and grammatically correct. It should be typed double-spaced on one side of A4 or 8 1/2 x 11" paper with good quality. Each paper requires an abbreviated title with no more than 40 English characters for the running head.

    Authors are requested to type all letters and mathematical symbols clearly. Papers should be typeset in LaTeX (or AMSTeX, TeX).


    References should be cited in the text with numerals in square brackets, e.g. [3]. All references should appear and be numbered in a separate bibliography at the end of the paper, e.g.,
