Welcome to JUS, Journal of Uncertain Systems

Journal of Uncertain Systems (JUS) is aimed to publish original research related to uncertain systems with mathematical description, including mathematical theory of uncertainty, optimization methodology under uncertainty, as well as applications in artificial intelligence, machine learning and knowledge discovery. By uncertainty, we mean fuzziness, randomness as well as twofold uncertainty. Some typical topics covered by JUS include but not limit to:
    (1) Fuzzy logic/ Fuzzy Set/ Type-2 Fuzzy Set/Rough Set;
    (2) Possibility Theory/Credibility Theory /Random Fuzzy Theory;
    (3) Stochastic Programming/Fuzzy Programming/Uncertain Programming;
    (4) Multi-Stage Fuzzy Programming/Fuzzy Multilevel Programming;
    (5) Probabilistic Reasoning/Fuzzy Reasoning;
    (6) Artificial Intelligence/ Pattern Recognition;
    (7) Machine Learning/Neural Network;
    (8) Data Mining/Knowledge Discovery.

Publication Ethics

The publication ethics standards of Journal of Uncertain Systems (JUS) include the following several aspects.

1. Plagiarism   JUS is committed to publishing only original work, that is, the work that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. Papers submitted to JUS that are identified to have been plagiarized from a paper by other authors will suffer the sanctions of plagiarism.

2. Duplication Submission   Papers submitted to JUS that are identified to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere, will suffer the sanctions of duplicate submission/publication. If authors submit a new paper based on their own previously published work, or work that is currently under review, they should cite their previous work and indicate how their new paper provides novel contributions/findings that are different from their previously work.

3. Data Fabrication or Falsification   Papers submitted to JUS that are identified to have either fabricated or falsified computational results, will suffer the sanctions of data fabrication and falsification.

4. Redundant Submissions   Papers submitted to JUS that are identified to have the inappropriate division of research results into several submitted manuscripts, will suffer the sanctions of redundant submissions.

5. Citation Manipulations   Papers submitted to JUS that are identified to involve citations whose primary purposes are to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to papers published in a particular journal, will suffer the sanctions of citation manipulation.

6. Sanctions   Papers submitted to JUS that are found to violate any one of the above described items, the authors in the infringing paper will suffer the following sanctions:

(1) Rejection of the infringing paper.

(2) Prohibition against all of the authors in the infringing paper for any new submissions to JUS. This prohibition will be imposed for at least two years.

(3) Prohibition against all of the authors in the infringing paper from serving on the Editorial Board of JUS. This prohibition will be imposed always.

(4) In the cases that the violations are found to be particularly serious, the publisher World Academic Union reserves the right to impose additional sanctions beyond to items (1), (2) and (3) specified above.
