The International Journal of Dynamical Systems Research: Chaos & Complexity Letters was born twenty years ago to add momentum to the development of Complexity Science. It aimed at extending multidisciplinary synergies, qualitative and quantitative research, and applications.
The structure of CCL added value to trans-disciplinary approaches while, at the same time, differentiating the epistemology of different contributions. Empirical research, models, simulations, data analysis, and an innovative metaphors section marked the original framework of CCL.
After twenty years, we can now say that we achieved our goals, helping to establish a common ground for a more profound and robust Complexity Science.
In this enterprise, we received support and inspiration from great companions and friends: Ilia Prigogine, Francisco Varela, Tito Arecchi, Tullio Minelli, Joe Zbilut, Franco Scalzone, Walter J Freeman, and Mario Fulcheri. Their vision and brilliance are still alive with us.
Equally, the Editorial Board has outstandingly sustained our knowledge adventures over the last twenty years in shaping this new science.
Nova Science, our Publisher, has supported our journey throughout different phases. Particularly, Frank Columbus, Nadya Columbus, and Louis Maurici have been outstanding in encouraging the development and growth of our Journal.
Over the years, several special issues have been evolving into standalone books. As a result, this component of our scientific publishing has been gradually becoming more successful than the Journal itself.
Therefore, we decided to focus on developing a Complexity Science book series in the future, as the Journal might have completed its natural life cycle.
