Aims and Scope

Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. (J. Banks; J. Carson; B. Nelson; D. Nicol (2001). Discrete-Event System Simulation. Prentice Hall. p. 3. ISBN 0-13-088702-1.) The scope of the Journal is to provide a place to exchange information on the latest simulation technology and its application by the presentation of latest papers of both researchers and technicians.

The Journal paper must be the original work of the author(s) and its main part has not been copyrighted, published, accepted or currently being considered for publication elsewhere; and will not be submitted elsewhere for publication under consideration by the Journal of Simulation.

The Journal is published quarterly worldwide in English in order to vitalize international studies on simulation and related computer techniques. The journal is edited by the Editorial Board, composed of the Editor-in-chief, Associate Editors and Advisory Editors. The Journal is edited by the Japan Society for Simulation Technology (JSST).
