Special Issue (ID: SS-CCSNMS)

Coupled complex systems and networks with multiple scales, their modelling, and applications

Manuscript Topics

This multidisciplinary special issue aims to cover diverse areas of science and engineering unified by the key role of coupled phenomena, physical fields, and effects, as well as by multiple-scale interactions at the local and/or entire system levels. The problems arising from such considerations are ubiquitous and often termed "coupled problems". The development of state-of-the-art models for such problems and their solutions are at the forefront of challenges of modern science and its applications in all areas of human endeavour. This issue welcomes theoretical, computational, and experimental advances in this pivotal field, covering all aspects of these problems and the systems from nano to macro scales. Potential topics include but are not limited to, continuum-based modelling, discrete simulation, and data-driven methodologies, as well as their efficient combinations applied to physical, engineering, biological, and social systems. Among others, applications addressing present and imminent societal challenges, which embrace global sustainability, would also be welcome. To address such challenges, new systematic efforts and momentous developments in the interdisciplinary field of coupled complex systems are required. This special issue will explore and assess the state-of-the-art in coupled complex systems and call attention to future research directions in this rapidly developing field that significantly impacts our society.

This special issue is in honour of Professor Roderick Melnik, who has pioneered many advanced mathematical models and has significantly contributed to this field over the past decades. The special issue is open to all researchers working in the above areas, including but not limited to the contributors of the Special Symposium on Coupled Complex Systems organized at the International AMMCS Conference Series, held in Waterloo, Canada. All papers submitted to this special issue will undergo a rigorous refereeing process.

About the Journal

The ERA (Electronic Research Archive) is an internationally renown SCIE journal originally published the American Mathematical Society that was bestowed to the American Institute of Mathematical Sciences in 2007. ERA publishes original and expository full length research articles of significant advances in all branches of mathematics, applied mathematics and related fields. Ever since ERA was created by the American Mathematical Society in 1995, this journal is regarded as an extraordinary contribution to the community by AMS and AIMS for over 20 years.
ERA is indexed/abstracted by Web of Science, Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet, and other major databases.

Instruction for Authors and Paper Submission

All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed before their acceptance for publication. Instructions for authors can be found at this page:

The deadline for manuscript submission is 31 March 2024

Two other special journal issues are being organized, a special issue of Mathematical and Computational Applications and a special issue of the Bioengineering journal. Both these publication venues are international peer-reviewed IF journals indexed by Elsevier and Web of Science Databases. The latter special issue will include the areas of coupled complex systems and networks, focusing on their applications to biomedical science and engineering.
