Created in 2011 by the European Union for Systemics (EUS) to promote and broadcast systems thinking, Acta Europeana Systemica is an Open Access Journal without publication fees, publishing review papers on topics in all areas of systems thinking. The main objective of the journal AES is to promote systems thinking by providing keys to understanding the complexity of reality. Its mission is to promote the emergence, communication and deepening of systemic thinking. The existence of the journal AES is necessitated by the realization that the complexity of the society in which we live exacerbates the need to find the tools, methods, an epistemology that allows to understand the functioning of the phenomena around us and and able to act. The journal AES is a place of reflection and exchange that confronts multiple practices, training and systems research. It supports in particular the approaches inter/pluri/multi/trans-disciplinary, openings to cultural diversity, field experiences and references to theoretical work.
The general editorial line of the journal AES is defined by two members of the EUS and the presidents of the member societies of the EUS.
