International Journal of Systems and Society (IJSS) Volume 1, Issue 2

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:

  • Systems Approaches Enable Improved Collaboration in Two Regional Australian Natural Resource Governance Situations
  • Reaching Community Consensus on Reforms for More Sustainable Urban Water Management Systems: The Case of Kāpiti, New Zealand
  • The Otaniemi Campus Development and Ecological Sustainability: Perceiving the Environment of a Complex Adaptive System
  • Radicalization and Recruitment: A Systems Approach to Understanding Violent Extremism
  • The Last Word
