Publication ethics and malpractice statement


Interdisciplinary studies on complex systems have gained extensive research interests. Significant impacts have been made by such studies in a wide range of different areas including physics, biology, economics, social sciences, computer sciences, electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, etc. In the long-term future, the way we understand and cope with the world may all be revolutionized.

This journal aims to reflect the interdisciplinary features of the exciting studies on complex systems. The scope include, but are not limited to, complex networks, complex social and economic systems, complex biological systems, complex engineering systems, complex system methods, and general complexity sciences, etc. On a peer-review basis, we publish full papers, letters, surveys, as well as essays. We welcome quick work-in-progress reports on preliminary research results with novelty. We also welcome comprehensive reports on finished projects. Innovative ideas and more insights into complex systems and their applications are what we are looking for. You are cordially welcome to join us to make this journal a success.


Dr. Gaoxi Xiao received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in applied mathematics from Xidian University, Xi’an, China, and the Ph.D. degree in computing from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He is now an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. His research interests include complex systems and networks, optical and wireless networking, and Internet technologies, etc. He was the founding General Co-Chair of The First International Conference on Complex Sciences: Theory and Application (Complex’09) and guest co-editor of Advances in Complex Systems, Topical Session on “Complex Networks”. He has also served in organizing committees and technical committees of about twenty international conferences.
