Dynamical Systems

Dynamical Systems: An International Journal is published four times a year in print and electronic editions by Taylor and Francis, and is currently in its 18th volume.

The primary goal of Dynamical Systems: An International Journal (founded as Dynamics and Stability of Systems) is to act as a forum for communication across all branches of modern dynamical systems, and especially to facilitate interaction between theory and applications. This journal aims to publish high quality research articles in the theory and applications of dynamical systems, especially but not exclusively nonlinear systems. Advances in the following topics will be addressed by the journal:

There is no formal page limit and longer manuscripts will be considered; however we intend to offer fast refereeing to short papers (of 5000 words or less than 8 pages in final form).

As the remit of the journal is fairly wide, authors are requested to write an introduction that enables a wide audience to understand the context and motivation of the results in their article. The articles should present a major advancement either in theory or applications of dynamics; articles that are minor improvements of previously published results will not be considered.

High quality papers describing the application of the modern theory of dynamics to practical problems in other disciplines and reports of experiments or numerical simulations are also welcome, as long as they clearly illustrate important theoretical issues, or highlight deficiencies in the theoretical development of dynamical systems. Contributions of a purely theoretical nature are likewise encouraged, provided that their relevance to applications is clearly described. The journal is particularly keen to attract a number of shorter papers (up to about 5000 words or 8 pages) and these will be dealt with under an accelerated refereeing and publication procedure. The journal also publishes occasional review articles. In all cases, authors are reminded to pay particular attention to the accessibility of their paper to a broad interdisciplinary audience.

The current impact factor is 0.737.
