About Complex Systems

Complex Systems was founded by Stephen Wolfram in 1987 as part of his work in launching the field of complex systems research.

As the first journal in the field, Complex Systems has had the privilege of publishing many seminal papers over the course of three decades.

Complex Systems has developed a uniquely broad base of readers and contributors from academia, industry, government and the general public in over 50 countries around the world. The topics of research covered by Complex Systems span a diverse array of areas, including mathematics, physics, computer science and biology.
