The Journal of Complex Systems aims to provide a medium of
communication for multidisciplinary approaches, either empirical=20
or theoretical, to the study of complex systems in such diverse=20
fields as biology, physics, engineering, economics, cognitive=20
science and social sciences, so as to promote the cross-
fertilization of ideas among all the scientific disciplines=20
having to deal with their own complex systems. By complex system,=20
it is meant a system comprised of a (usually large) number of=20
(usually strongly) interacting entities, processes, or agents, the=20
understanding of which requires the development, or the use of,=20
new scientific tools, nonlinear models, out-of equilibrium=20
descriptions and computer simulations. Understanding the behavior=20
of the whole from the behavior of its constituent units is a=20
recurring theme in modern science, and is the central topic of the=20
Journal of Complex Systems.=20

Papers suitable for publication in the Journal of Complex Systems=20
should deal with complex systems, from an empirical or theoretical=20
viewpoint, or both, in biology, physics, engineering, economics,=20
cognitive science and social sciences. This list is not exhaustive.=20
Papers should have a cross-disciplinary approach or perspective, and
have a significant scientific and technical content.=20

                ______________________________________



Original papers can be submitted as regular papers or as letters.=20
Regular papers report detailed results, whereas letters are short=20
communications, not exceeding 3000 words, that report important new=20
results. Ideally, regular papers should contain between 3000 and=20
12000 words, but the editors may consider the publication of shorter=20
or longer papers if necessary. Short reviews and tutorials will also be=20
considered. Please contact the Editor-in-Chief (bonabeau at santafe.edu)=20
before embarking on a review or tutorial.=20

It is extremely important that papers contain a sufficiently long=20
introduction accessible to a wide readership, and that results be put=20
in broader perspective in the conclusion. However, the main body of a=20
paper should not have a low technical content under the pretext that=20
the journal is multi-disciplinary.=20

The submission of a manuscript will be taken to imply that thematerial=20
is original and has not been and will not be (unless not accepted in=20
the Journal of Complex Systems) submitted in equivalent form for=20
publication elsewhere.=20

Papers will be published in English. The American or the British forms=20
of spelling may be used, but this usage must be consistent throughout=20
the manuscript.=20

Electronic submission is requested. Authors that use LaTex should use=20
the template files which are available at the journal's web page=20
(http://www.santafe.edu/~bonabeau. Authors using word processors should=20
conform to the style given in the sample postscript file (jcs.ps) which
can also be downloaded from the journal's web page. A postscript file=20
is sufficient for the first submission. Source files will be requested=20
when the paper is accepted for publication.=20
