Call for Papers 2024

CGN is back to accepting applications in 2024- and we are so excited to launch our Volume 9!

Complexity, Governance & Networks started in 2014 with the mission to democratize access to cutting-edge research about complexity by ensuring published journal articles are freely available to the digital community.   

As a study, complexity is like unraveling an intricate web of connections within systems to understand how small changes can lead to large-scale effects. Because it is often multidisciplinary in nature, complexity offers a great opportunity for scholars from a variety of fields to participate. Whether public administration, computational social sciences, network studies, etc., our journal is the perfect platform for sharing insights and discoveries, fostering collaboration, and advancing our collective understanding of complex systems and their governance mechanisms.
