Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit your articles to the Special Issue of Axioms entitled Fuzzy Set Theory and Applications. The title of the Special Issue does not only reflect the topicality of the Special Issue itself, but it also provides a direct link to the 15th International Conference on Fuzzy Set Theory and Applications, FSTA 2020 (www.fsta.sk) held in Liptovský Ján, Slovakia, 26–31 January 2020. The FSTA conferences have a long tradition in gathering many researchers focusing on mathematical theories related to fuzzy set theory as well as their applications, and the main idea of the event is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas. The publication outputs of the event are then usually provided in one or more Special Issues of selected journals with post-conference publications. This Special Issue is one of such typical post-conference Special Issues; however, it is also absolutely open to submissions from authors who are interested in the topic even if they have not participated at the FSTA event at all.

We encourage any researchers with novel results in fuzzy set theory and its applications to prepare the publication outputs in the Axioms format and to submit to our Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
