Aims & Scope of the Journal
Published on behalf of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International, the leading society devoted to advancing the discipline and profession of modeling and simulation, SIMULATION: Transactions of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International is a fully peer-reviewed international journal that publishes original research and review articles devoted to theory and applications, all with clear relevance to general modeling and simulation issues.
Published articles must have a clear relevance to general modeling and simulation issues. In addition to its archival mission, the journal aims to help professionals and researchers, particularly those involved in multidisciplinary projects, apply advances in modeling and simulation theory, methodology, and technology to their application areas.
Methodology and Theory Sections
The journal consists of two distinct sections: one devoted to theory, the other to applications.
The Methodology section welcomes original papers of lasting value dealing with modeling and simulation that are methodological in nature. In particular, purely mathematical, computational, or empirical results, however valuable, are considered more appropriate to the many journals specializing in these areas.
The Applications section welcomes applied papers describing mature work involving computational accounts of modeling and simulation. Proposals for new ways of looking at modeling and simulation must include demonstrations of effectiveness.
Wide-Coverage of Established and Emerging Areas
The methods and applications of modeling and simulation in both well established and emerging areas include the fields of, but are not restricted to:
Computer Science: Computer networking and communications, high performance computers, real-time systems, mobile and intelligent agents, simulation software, and language design.
Engineering: System engineering and design, aerospace, traffic systems, microelectronics, robotics, mechatronics, and air traffic.
Physical and Life Sciences: Chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, biomedicine, sociology, and cognition.
