Nonlinear Theory and Its Applications, IEICE
Nonlinear Theory and Its Applications, IEICE (NOLTA) is an all-electronic open access journal published quarterly by the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), and edited by the NOLTA Editorial committee. NOLTA covers the entire field of nonlinear science, engineering and mathematics. NOLTA shall be published on J-STAGE web pages maintained by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).


The features of NOLTA are:
1. Papers are DOI (digital object identifier) attached and accessible through the internet from all over the world.
2. Links to references are provided.
3. Papers including figures with multi-colors can be published.
4. Archives are available in the NOLTA web pages (

Editorial policy:
NOLTA publishes technical reports on outstanding inventions, innovation, and finding that have influential importance to nonlinear science. Rapid circulation of publication as well as article quality is deemed important for both contributors and subscribers working in the fast moving fields. For the promptness in reviewing and publishing procedures, authors are strongly advised to write their manuscripts as clearly and simply as possible so that the significance of their accomplishment can be readily spotted.

NOLTA Best Paper Award:
The NOLTA Editorial committee presents the NOLTA Best Paper Award to authors of the most outstanding paper published in each volume of Nonlinear Theory and its Applications (NOLTA). The NOLTA Best Paper Award Selection Committee, which the NOLTA Editor-in-Chief chairs, determines the Award winners.

The decision of the Selection Committee is authorized by the IEICE Engineering Sciences Society Board of Directors and announced in June. The Award, which shall consist of a testimonial and cash prize, is scheduled to be presented at the International Symposium on Nonlinear Theory and its Applications.
