Submit a Paper to the International Journal of Knowledge and Systems Science (IJKSS)

Published Quarterly. Est. 2010.

The International Journal of Knowledge and Systems Science (IJKSS) serves as a multi-disciplinary platform and adopts a systems approach to the theory and practice of managing information and people in knowledge intensive activities and processes, emphasizing the understanding of humans and their environment as part of interacting systems from both soft and hard systems science. As a quarterly journal that publishes theoretical, experimental, and experiential papers, practice notes, case studies, and innovative methodologies, IJKSS provides a forum for academicians, scientists, practitioners, and industry professionals to integrate diversity and fragments of knowledge.

The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Knowledge and Systems Science (IJKSS) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJKSS.


The mission of the International Journal of Knowledge and Systems Science (IJKSS) is to promote the development of knowledge science and systems science as well as the collaboration between the two sciences among academics and professionals from various disciplines around the world. IJKSS establishes knowledge and systems science as a vigorous academic discipline in universities. Targeting academicians, professors, students, practitioners, and field specialists, this journal covers the development of new paradigms in the understanding and modeling of human knowledge process from mathematical, technical, social, psychological, and philosophical frameworks. The International Journal of Knowledge and Systems Science was originally launched by the International Society of Knowledge and Systems Science, which was founded by Professor Y. Nakamori in 2003. Professor Z. and Professor Z.T. Wang were its Founding Editors.
