About this Journal

Complexity is a cross-disciplinary journal focusing on the rapidly expanding science of complex adaptive systems. The purpose of the journal is to advance the science of complexity. Articles may deal with such methodological themes as chaos, genetic algorithms, cellular automata, neural networks, and evolutionary game theory. Papers treating applications in any area of natural science or human endeavor are welcome, and especially encouraged are papers integrating conceptual themes and applications that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. Complexity is not meant to serve as a forum for speculation and vague analogies between words like “chaos,” “self-organization,” and “emergence” that are often used in completely different ways in science and in daily life.

The most recent Impact Factor for Complexity is 4.621 according to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports released by Thomson Reuters in 2017.

Content published prior to 2017 is hosted on the Wiley Online Library.

Complexity currently has an acceptance rate of 26%. The average time between submission and final decision is 41 days and the average time between acceptance and publication is 47 days.
