An interdisciplinary journal of nonlinear science

Chaos, Solitons & Fractals has an open access companion journal Chaos, Solitons & Fractals: X which has the same aims and scope, editorial board and peer-review process. To submit to Chaos, Solitons & Fractals: X visit https://www.editorialmanager.com/CSFX/default.aspx.

Chaos, Solitons & Fractals aims to be the leading journal in the interdisciplinary field of Nonlinear Science.

It encourages the submission of high-quality articles (under the form of short communications, regular papers, and review papers) containing results which have a significant impact on the following subjects:

nonlinear dynamics and non-equilibrium processes in physics and applied mathematics;

complex matter and networks;

biophysics, systems biology and computational biology;

fluctuations and random processes;

artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data analytics;

self-organization and emergent phenomena;

applications to social science, engineering and econophysics.



The journal can only accept papers whose primary subject area lies within the above Aims & Scope.


In particular, please take notice of the following, additional, criteria:

In order to be acceptable, manuscripts of more mathematical nature should have a clear and explicit 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 are profound for an important particular application, especially in complex systems. Numerical computations should only assist the developed results.

The submitted Manuscripts should contain presentations which are a) of interdisciplinary interest, b) easily accessible also to a non-specialized-audience, and c) written in an excellent English style.



Notice that if the above criteria are not fulfilled, submissions may be desk-rejected by the Journal's Editors without being sent to reviewers.
