Description & Scope
The International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient and Autonomic Systems (IJARAS) examines systems and organizations characterized by the following two properties: the ability to self-adapt to the characteristics of rapidly changing and turbulent environments by adopting complex individual and...

Mission & Scope:
Society is currently experiencing the increasing population of “things,” able to autonomously link with each other and enact complex strategies to achieve tasks. The emergence of the Semantic Web, the Internet-of-Things, Ambient Intelligence, and cyber-physical societies make it impossible to capture the intricacies of the future highly dynamic and turbulent networks of interrelated...

  • Standard (Non-OA) Publishing: If the author chooses to publish under the Standard (Non-OA) model, the article will be published under a Green OA model and the copyright of their article will transfer to IGI Global under our Author Warranty and Transfer of Copyright Agreement. However, through Green OA, IGI Global supports a Fair Use Policy, enabling authors to Post the final typeset PDF (which includes the title page, table of contents and other front materials, and the copyright statement) of their chapter or article (NOT THE ENTIRE BOOK OR JOURNAL ISSUE), on the author or editor's secure personal website and/or their university repository site. See the Fair Use Policy for sharing allowances conducive to Green Open Access.
  • Open Access Publishing: If the author choses to publish under OA, the authors receive the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licensing arrangement. The copyright for the work remains solely with the author(s) of the article.

The journal will not publish any material that has been previously published elsewhere. Learn More

Article Processing Charges
This journal operates under the Hybrid Open Access model, allowing the author to choose between traditional, subscription-based publishing, or Open Access publishing.
Subscription-Based Publishing/Green Open Access: Article manuscripts require no Article Processing Charge (APC) and require authors to transfer the copyright of the manuscript to IGI Global. Manuscripts are published behind a paywall and must be purchased for use. See the Fair Use Policy for sharing allowances conducive to Green Open Access.
