Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Applying Complexity for Creative Emergence - Part 2   Order a copy of this article
    by Anneloes Smitsman, Alexander Laszlo, Sudip Patra 
    Abstract: This is the second article of a two-part series exploring how to work with the complexity of life for societal and human development. We explore the application of relational quantum and evolutionary systemic perspectives for working with complexity as a transformative process. As such, we consider how our world can be attracted into transformative emergence by working with the imaginal potential of complex systems and developing three essential evolutionary capabilities. Systemic tipping point and trim tab dynamics are explored as attractors and affordances for creative emergence, rather than restricting consideration through reliance on mechanistic tools of regulation and control. This is followed by a brief exploration of emerging quantum-like modelling approaches to decision-making in a universe of fundamental uncertainty. We conclude our two-article series with an exploration of new narratives for healing
    Keywords: tipping points; trim tabs; state attractors; systems thinking; quantum potential; transformation; bifurcation point; imaginal domains; evolutionary capabilities; new narratives.
