    Manuscript Requirement

    Manuscripts submitted to Journal of System Simulation should not have been published and will not be submitted or published elsewhere in English or any other language without the written consent of the publisher.

    The manuscripts should be in 2-column format. The writing style should be simple and straightforward, and the data should be reliable. Any undue self-appraisal must be abandoned. Manuscripts of low quality, of poor English writing or with tedious quotations will be rejected without review.

    Submitted manuscripts in any type of the following three are acceptable: Review, Paper, and Letter:

    (1) Review: Discussion and evaluation of the latest research achievements regarding the cutting-edge issues, interdisciplinary study, and high-tech innovation in the field of simulation science and technology and suggestions for future development.

    (2) Paper: Elaboration of major or important research achievement of simulation science, technology, or engineering in the field of system simulation. The achievement features innovativeness as a breakthrough and can boost the development of system simulation.

    (3) Letter: Brief description of excellent achievement in the research, development, and application of simulation science and technology. The achievement is of theoretical significance or reference value for application.

    The submission should include title, author information, abstract, keywords, Chinese library classification (CLC) number, introduction, main part, conclusion, and references. Four elements of objective, method, result, and conclusion are necessary for the abstract in which the innovation points (such as new theory, new insight, new technology, and new process) need to be marked in italics. At least 15 references are required, more than 70% of which should be published within 5 years.
