|The Journal addresses the needs of a wide community of specialists dealing with control in technical, organizational, social, economic, environmental, biological, and medical systems. The Journal audience also includes control and automation system engineers and developers as well as undergraduate and postgraduate researchers.
Aims & Scope
The Journal clearly and intelligibly explains the ideas and methods to solve control problems based on modern modeling approaches under a variable environment, incomplete or limited information, conflicting goals, and weakly structured and multiple objectives. These problems are commonly encountered in the real world.
The Journal focuses on systems analysis and general-system operation mechanisms of large-scale objects, theory and techniques of choice and decision-making in complex systems, expertise and data analysis, large-scale system models, applied mathematical control models of various systems, prediction techniques and models, applied models and methods of management in organizations and economy, and the problems of national and regional administration.
Compared to similar journals of the field, Control Sciences is remarkable for a uniform scope of modern control problems, an interdisciplinary approach, and an emphasis on the potential applicability of scientific results.
The Journal publishes original papers with new scientific results on theoretical control problems and applications, comprehensive state-of-the-art surveys of key scientific problems, conference reports of major interest, and brief communications.

- Systems Analysis
- Mathematical Problems of Control
- Analysis and Design of Control Systems
- Information Technology in Control
- Control in Social and Economic Systems
- Control in Medical and Biological Systems
