International Journal of Systems Science (IJSS) is a world leading journal dedicated to publishing high quality, rigorously reviewed, original papers that contribute to the methodology and practice in emerging systems engineering themes of intelligence, autonomy and complexity. Modern systems are becoming more and more complex and sophisticated in their demand for performance, reliability and increasing autonomy. Historically, highly analytic and numeric-based methods have sufficed, frequently simplifying the problem to allow analytical tractability. Many manufactured and natural systems (biological, ecological and socio-economic) cannot be adequately represented or analyzed without requiring multiple interacting and interconnected frameworks and a common information-processing framework. A wide range of new theories, methodologies and techniques are required to ‘enable’ such systems, and thus engineering and integration to deal with these demands.
