Neutrosophic Sets and Systems
 

An International Journal in Information Science and Engineering
 

Founder: Florentin Smarandache (since 2013)

  

  

Information for Authors and Subscribers:

Neutrosophic Sets and Systems (NSS) is an academic journal, published bimonthly online and on paper, that has been created for publications of advanced studies in neutrosophy, neutrosophic set, neutrosophic logic, neutrosophic probability, neutrosophic statistics etc. and their applications in any field.

Printed copies of all Neutrosophic Sets and Systems volumes are stored at The Hayden Library, Special Collections, Arizona State University (ASU), Tempe, AZ 85287-1006, USA.

Neutrosophic Set is a generalization of Intuitionistic Fuzzy Set, Inconsistent Intuitionistic Fuzzy Set (Picture Fuzzy Set, Ternary Fuzzy Set), Pythagorean Fuzzy Set, q-Rung Orthopair Fuzzy Set, Spherical Fuzzy Set, and n-HyperSpherical Fuzzy Set. While Neutrosophication is a Generalization of Regret Theory, Grey System Theory, and Three-Ways Decision: https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1911/1911.07333.pdf .

Information for Authors.
All submitted papers should be professional, in good English, containing a brief review of a problem and obtained results.

Papers are checked for plagiarism and self-plagiarism with an automated computer program.
