About This Special Issue
The Special Issue will focus on results in social complex systems research. Particularly those that make possible differences in relation to the traditional way of non-complex social research. Such as:
  1. How to distinguish complex problems. How to research them?
  2. Modelling of Complex Dynamics (Models with algebraic Functions (Funciones); models with Applications (Aplicaciones); models with Relations (Relaciones); Agent Based models-ABM (computational or not) and Network models of emergent processes.
  3. Characterization of every day social life processes (in any area) as linked everyday practices of Power, Desire, Knowledge and Speech.
  4. The Morphogenetic Invariants of Trans-scalar Self-Similarity (MITS): A complex-systemic-DNA of any domain.
  5. Socio-environmental-dynamic processes (the Anthropoceno concept),
  6. Complexity and Critical Thinking. The importance of periphery (whether spatial or in time) emergent processes.
Alternative Political entities: Politicized Social Movements and Mobilized Political Parties.

Aims and Scope:

  1. Complexity Science Research
  2. Complex Problems
  3. Emergent Processes
  4. Modelling of complex dynamics
  5. Everyday social practices
  6. Periphery Emergences
  7. Morphogenesis
  8. Socio-environmental processes
  9. Complex political entities

    Abstract: The relationship between the social, economic, and political systems with the educational system has always existed, but the observation of this correspondence through the gaze of complexity has only been carried out since recent times. Upon delving into it, an ever-growing dynamism is observed in that interdependence. To the extent that the develo... Show More
