Kybernetes: The International Journal of Systems, Cybernetics and Management Science

This volume 36 with issues 1-10, marks our increased involvement with the field of management science. This will include, of course, our present interests in business and management cybernetics, as well as systems science, and related areas. Future issues will also confirm our continued endeavours to publish the world's leading contributions in the multi- and trans-disciplinary fields of cybernetics and systems.

To reflect this increased interest in management science three well-known figures in the field, Professors Raul Espejo and Marcus Schwaninger, and Dr Allenna Leonard, have accepted our invitation to join the journal's Editorial Advisory Board.

The journal will also be included in the publisher's “Emerald Management Extra” which offers a number of important facilities services including a comprehensive remote access service with “Emerald Fulltext”.

During 2007-2008, special double issues and features will be published on a range of topics of special interest to our readers, in addition to our usual regular sections and reviewed contributions. We look forward to the compilations on “Gregory Bateson”, “Cybernetics and Design”, “General Systems Studies”, “UK Cybernetics Society – selected conference papers” and many others.

In this volume, our first special double issue will be concerned with “Management Science” and will illustrate the wide range of the research and development being carried out in this area. Readers are encouraged to participate in our activities and we welcome their feedback both by way of contributions in the form of articles and papers but also to our regular sections: which are concerned with publishing readers views (“Communications and forum” section), current activities and reports (“News, conferences and technical reports”) and to our “Book reviews and Reports” section.
