Systems Science & Control Engineering

Systems Science & Control Engineering: An Open Access Journal provides a high-quality rapid publication platform for all systems & control and related topics under a fully open access model.

Every article undergoes rigorous and rapid peer review by a team of leading academics from across the globe, lead by Professor Zidong Wang of Brunel University, UK. Professor Wang serves as Associate Editor for numerous journals and his research interests include dynamical systems, signal processing, bioinformatics, control theory and applications. He has published more than 100 papers in refereed international journals.
The journal encourages the submission of original articles, reviews and short communications in all areas of theoretical and applied systems science and control engineering, including, but not limited to:

  • artificial intelligence
  • complex systems
  • complex networks
  • control theory
  • control applications
  • cybernetics
  • dynamical systems theory
  • operations research
  • systems biology
  • systems dynamics
  • systems ecology
  • systems engineering
  • systems psychology

Article Publishing Fee
To support Open Access, accepted articles will be subject to an article publishing fee of $750. The fee is paid via invoicing and will take place after acceptance of the article following peer review. Further processing of the article will be deferred pending payment.
It is likely that your research funder, sponsor, or host institution has funding available for open access publication fees.

Can the publication fee be discounted or waivered?
Systems Science & Control Engineering provides fee waivers and discounts to support researchers in developing and emerging regions.  Authors are eligible to apply for a waiver if the corresponding author and majority of co-authors are based in countries listed in ‘Group A’  by the Research4Life partnership. Countries in ‘Group B’ are eligible to apply for a 50% discount. Other waivers may be granted on a case-by-case basis depending on the authors' circumstances. Authors should request a waiver during the submission process.
For more information on payment of the article publishing fee, including circumstances under which a refund can be offered, please see here.
