Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Basically, Systems Engineering (SE) can be perceived in two ways:

  1. SE represents a trans-disciplinary endeavour enabling a shift of methods, tools, procedures or techniques applied in downstream engineering realms at a higher level of abstraction. In this way, isomorphism of engineering activities in all domains can be emphasised and serve as a basis for further development in particular fields.
  2. SE is a practical discipline bringing many downstream engineering disciplines together which cooperation, orchestration and synchronisation is required to design, develop and implement solutions to hard and complex problems that remain beyond the reach of any one single discipline.

Systems Engineering Vision 2025 published by the International Council on Systems Engineering highlights various imperatives related to successful development of SE and its community. It is necessary to expand application of SE across various domains, include aspects associated with soft, social or natural systems, build theoretical foundations for SE or advance tools and methods to address complex issues. To continue the momentum of contemporary development, this collection aims at publication of the novel and original research articles that deal with any aspect of the two aforementioned approaches to SE, from cradle to grave, from system design to its disposal.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 collection 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. Systems 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 350 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.
