Aims & Scope

Chaos, Solitons & Fractals aims to be a leading journal in the interdisciplinary field of Nonlinear Science, and Nonequilibrium and Complex Phenomena. It encourages the submission of articles on the following subjects in this field: dynamics; non-equilibrium processes in physics, chemistry and geophysics; complex matter and networks; mathematical models; computational biology; applications to quantum and mesoscopic phenomena; fluctuations and random processes; self-organization; social phenomena.

The journal can only accept papers whose primary subject area lies within the above Aims & Scope. In particular, please take notice of the following:

• Papers of a more applied or engineering nature can be considered when they are closely connected to one of the subjects of the journal and contribute to a better understanding of that subject.

• In order to be acceptable, manuscripts on integrable systems should at least attempt a connection to physical insight or new qualitative features. The word “Solitons” should be understood as a label especially extended to all nonlinear integrable systems in complex natural phenomena. The paper should not bear on some explicit formulae, some standard solutions, constructions, or asymptotic methods.

• The journal is interested in articles providing strong insights in the mathematical theory of fractals that play an important role either in understanding the general theory or are profound for an important particular application, especially in complex systems. Numerical computations should only assist the developed results. Also welcome are the discovery of new fractals that are crucial for important applications.

The subject listing is specified further in the journal's classification list. Authors are required to specify matching classifications upon submission of their work.

Note for authors:
Plagiarism is unethical behaviour and is not tolerated at Chaos, Solitons & Fractals. All manuscripts submitted to Chaos, Solitons & Fractals will be checked for originality using the CrossCheck database. For more information on CrossCheck, please visit click here
