Submit a Paper to the International Journal of System Dynamics Applications (IJSDA)

Published Quarterly. Est. 2012.

The International Journal of System Dynamics Applications (IJSDA) publishes original scientific and quality research on the theory of and advances in dynamical systems with analyses of measure-theoretical and topological aspects. This interdisciplinary journal provides audiences with an extensive exploration of the perspectives and methods of system dynamics and system thinking, which are applied to systems in the fields of engineering, soft computing, economics, management, and medicine, among others. The journal also covers strongly related research areas including control, automation, soft-computing and systems. IJSDA publishes original articles, reviews, technical reports, patent alerts, and case studies on the latest innovative findings of new methodologies and techniques. The journal welcomes active participation and contribution by researchers, not only by submitting original works but also by making constructive suggestions for improving the journal. IJSDA appeals to academics, researchers, and professionals in the fields of engineering, modeling, and computer simulation, decision analysis, soft computing, control systems, biomedical modeling, dynamical systems, applied mathematics, statistics, natural sciences, policy analysis, management science, economics, and behavioural sciences.

The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of System Dynamics Applications (IJSDA)  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 IJSDA.


The mission of the International Journal of System Dynamics Applications (IJSDA) is to provide a deeper understanding of the dynamic behavior of complex systems. The journal promotes the development of System Dynamics (SD) and the interchange of learning and research in related fields. Control systems coverage spotlights all aspects of control theory and related computational techniques and practical applications. Apart from conventional control, the journal publishes papers in the field of intelligent control and soft computing, particularly, intelligent systems, fuzzy logic, neural networks, genetic algorithms/evolutionary computing, and probabilistic techniques. Detailed reviews of newly published books relevant to future studies in the field are also included. IJSDA serves as a highly useful reference for mathematicians, students, and researchers interested in the many facets of dynamical and control systems.
