International Journal of Systems and Society (IJSS) Volume 1, Issue 1

Book Description

The International Journal of Systems and Society (IJSS) is dedicated to support and encourage the publication of high quality articles that promote the way in which systems ideas are used. Papers are encouraged from practitioners, systems researchers, and systems academics. The focus of the journal is on the use and development of systems ideas within society and less on literature reviews, although some instances may occur where such papers are accepted. The journal encourages field research and research into real situations. All papers undergo a double blind peer review process and the difference in style of practitioner papers from academic is acknowledged. In the long tradition of the Systemist, opinion papers are considered for publication at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • How Can We Incorporate Relevant Findings from Psychology into Systems Methods?
  • Organisational Power and the Metaphor Commodity
  • The Meaning of System: Towards a Complexity Orientation in Systems Thinking
  • Considering Complexity in Simple Solutions: What’s So Complicated About Skype?
  • Systems Thinking: Dealing with Time Scales
