Emergent Publications (formerly ISCE Publishing) was founded in Oct 2004 in order to provide a publishing avenue for authors of multi-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary complex systems papers and books. The heart of our publishing activities is the international journal Emergence: Complexity & Organization (E:CO) which is read by both academics and scholars worldwide. E:CO is published in association with Adelphi University, The Complexity Society and Cognitive Edge.
In January 2005 EP developed the capacity to publish complexity related books inhouse. We now provide the necessary support for authors of complexity-related literature to get published in a professional and timely manner. The principal aim of EP is to become the publishing house for complex systems-related publications.
More recently, as part of the process of rebranding from ISCE Publishing to Emergent Publications, we decided to emphasize a focus on ‘applications of complexity’ in an effort to ground much of the abstract academic research in the real world. A major initiative in this particular direction is our new imprint Impact Books, further details of which can be found here.
If you have any ideas regarding possible future volumes or have a manuscript that you’d like EP to consider then please write to Dr Kurt A. Richardson.
