How to publish in this journal


The journal provides a leading forum for disseminating significant original research results in the foundations, theory, development, analysis, and applications of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. Specific topics of interest include, but are not restricted to: Agent decision-making architectures and their evaluation, including deliberative, practical reasoning, reactive/behavioural, plan-based, and hybrid architectures. Cooperation and teamwork, including organizational structuring and design for multi-agent systems, self-organization, emergent functionality and swarm intelligence. Multi-agent planning and planning for multi-agent systems, and the coordination of multi-agent plans and activities. Computational auction systems, computational market systems, algorithmic/automated mechanism design, automated negotiation, computational aspects of game theory (cooperative and non-cooperative), and computational social choice theory. Knowledge representation and reasoning for, and logical foundations of, autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. Agent programming languages - their implementation, semantics, and evaluation. Distributed constraint processing and distributed constraint optimization. Multi-agent argumentation and dialogue, conflict detection and resolution. Multi-agent learning, co-learning, and evolutionary approaches in multi-agent systems. Learning agents, including: computational architectures for learning agents; evolution, adaptation; multi-agent learning. Agent communication languages, their semantics, pragmatics, and implementation, and agent communication protocols and conversations. Conventions, commitments, norms, obligations, and social laws in multi-agent systems, and models of trust and reputation. Believable and synthetic agents and characters, and human-agent interaction. Environments, testbeds, and programming languages for experimentation with, and analysis of, agent systems. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
