The Journal INDECS is devoted to the field emerging rapidly as an intricate combination of
theoretically and empirically well founded scientific disciplines such as humanities, social
and natural sciences, still enriched with novel elements and often surprising moments.
The journal aims to contribute to this sparsely covered field, where metaphorical
expressions about our world and its various segments subtly develop into concepts and
further into well-defined, more quantifiable, measurable, predictable and operable structures.
In this sense, the articles included generally cover areas such as concept development and
modelling, as well as others that contribute to a quantification of impressions and
henceforth to a deepening of understanding of human societies and other complex
systems, including aspects of our environment.
The Journal predicted audience are scientists and experts with a background in natural or
social sciences, as well as anyone else interested in the description of complex,
predominantly human systems.
The Journal publishes original, double-blind peer-reviewed, scientific contributions prepared
as reviews, regular articles and conference papers, brief and preliminary reports and comments
to published articles. All published articles obtained two affirmative reviews prior to their
publishing and representatives of their authors signed declaration of following completely the
ethical norms of scientific publishing.
