International Journal of Signs and Semiotic Systems (IJSSS) 

Visit http://www.igi-global.com/ijsss and have access to a free sample copy of the inaugural issue (table of contents).

The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Signs and Semiotic Systems (IJSSS) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJSSS.


The mission of the International Journal of Signs and Semiotic Systems (IJSSS) is to provide a forum for comparative, evolutionary, theoretical, and empirical perspectives on computational modeling of semiotic systems and processes, and to present formal and synthetic simulation, implementation, and realization of computer machines and robots involved in these systems and processes. This journal offers a collaborative approach to innovative research geared toward a deeper understanding of semiotic processes and an integrated vision of synthesis in artificial systems. As an integral reference for community researchers in the field, this publication explores recent developments in neurocognitive science, cognitive ethology, second order cybernetics, cognitive semantics, pragmatic linguistics, theoretical semiotics, biosemiotics, evolutionary biology, and societal and organisational studies.


Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Adaptive advantage of iconic, indexical, and symbolic systems and processes
  • Biologically inspired models of semiotic systems
  • Collaborative semiotic processes and applications
  • Embodied and situated semiotic processes
  • Emergence and evolution of semiotic processes
  • Evolution of information interpretation systems
  • Meaning
  • Meaningful text mining
  • Semiotic dynamics and complexity
  • Semiotic systems
  • Sign and symbol grounding
  • Sign production, computing, interpretation, and communication
  • Societal and organizational semiotic processes
  • Technological semiotic artifacts
  • Umwelt, semiotic landscapes, and niches


    Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished articles will be considered. Interested authors must consult the journal’s guidelines for manuscript submissions athttp://www.igi-global.com/development/author_info/guide.asp prior to submission. All article submissions will be forwarded to at least 3 members of the Editorial Review Board of the journal for double-blind, peer review. Final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers. All submissions must be forwarded electronically.

    All submissions and inquiries should be directed to the attention of:
