IEEE OPEN JOURNAL OF CONTROL SYSTEMS is a rapid turnaround, open access, and rigorously peer-reviewed IEEE Control Systems Society publication that expands its journal program to offer original research across the broad spectrum of all areas of Dynamic Systems and Controls.

The new journal aims to publish high-quality papers on the theory, design, optimization, and applications of dynamic systems and control, while promoting open access to all control systems research and education publications, including software, and data.

Some journal highlights include:

  • Special emphasis areas are the interplay between data science and control, and the interdisciplinary connection of dynamic systems and controls with diverse applications in biological, social, cognitive, and cyber-physical systems.
  • New publication categories will be featured in addition to regular papers, including overview, position, open software/testbed tutorial papers, and reproducible papers in dynamic systems and controls.
  • Upcoming Special Sections and Issues covering state-of-the-art, trending topics will be announced soon.


The field integrates elements of sensing, communication, decision and actuation components, as relevant for the analysis, design and operation of dynamic systems and control. The systems considered include: technological, physical, biological, economic, organizational and other entities, and combinations thereof. Other keywords include:
