The journal intends to facilitate discussions of the foundations of systemic thinking whatever its approach is; papers are encouraged to ask questions like: what do different approaches have in common? What is the difference that is made when using different concepts?
The journal intends to lay emphasis on the impact on society that various findings have, might have and shall have.
This task is a necessary task as we live in an age of global challenges that endanger the continuation of civilised life on Earth. Global challenges are complex in nature. Systemic thinking is the best method to cope with them. However, this method is in need of continuous reassessment and improvement. Our journal wants to contribute to that task.
Why another journal on systems?
