Welcome to the website of the Electronic Scientific and Educational journal "Artificial Societies"!
Social sciences, including economic ones, are on the verge of a large-scale and effective use of a new tool for obtaining knowledge. These are so-called agent-based computer models (ABM). The Laboratory of Agent Modeling of the CEMI RAS undertook the courage to initiate an intellectual movement in our country in this field. The journal that you see before you, acting as an analogue of the english-language Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation (JASSS), is the most convenient place for publishing works on the subject of artificial societies. We, however, do not want to confine ourselves to purely computerized calculations and are ready to consider works of a more general nature. What will be the jornal, depends on all of us - on our activity and intelligence. We are waiting for the readers' letters with questions and suggestions, as well as articles for publication on the pages of our magazine.
Editor-in-chief of the journal, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences V.L. Makarov
