Focus and Scope

The international mathematical journal NFAA will publish carefully selected original research papers on nonlinear functional analysis and applications, that is, ordinary differential equations, all kinds of partial differential equations, functional differential equations, integrodifferential equations, control theory, approximation theory, optimal control, optimization theory, numerical analysis, variational inequality, asymptotic behavior, fixed point theory, dynamic systems and complementarity problems. Papers for publication will be communicated and recommended by the members of the Editorial Board.

Peer Review Process

Papers submitted to the Nonlinear Functional Analysis and Applications(NFAA) are blind-reviewed by three or four peer reviewers. And two or more reviewers must recommend for the publication in NFAA.  The reviewers have to submit their referee`s reports on the manuscripts along with their recommendation of one of the following decisions to the Handling Editor: “Accept Submission,” “Minor Revisions Required,” “Major Revisions Required,” and “Decline Submission”. After then, the Handling Editor of the paper can make one of the following editorial recommendations: “Accept Submission,” “Minor Revisions Required,” “Major Revisions Required,” or “Decline Submission”. Finally the Editor-in-Chief  decides to accept  or reject for the publication.


Publication Frequency

Nonlinear Functional Analysis and Applications(NFAA) is an international blind peer-reviewed journal devoted exclusively to the publication of high-quality research papers in the fields of nonlinear functional analysis and applications. One volume is published each year, and each volume consists of four issues at March 15, June 15, September 15, and December 15. And also, the special issues will be published on some times.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. That is, researchers who want to refer to papers which was published in the journal NFAA can always access them for free.


Author Fees

Nonlinear Functional Analysis and Applications(NFAA) is an open access journal. In order to continue the production of this journal,  each  accepted article for publication in NFAA is subject to an Article Processing Charge(APC) of USD $ 350:00 (or USD $ 250:00).


Publication Ethics

NFAA is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles. Especially, NFAA is following the Code of Conduct as defined by the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE). These ethics include the editor following certain rules on relations with readers, authors, and reviewers as well as procedures for handling complaints. Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.In particular, Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. The authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. They should encourage debate and academic integrity and also protect individual data. They also have a duty to act if any misconduct is suspected and to ensure the integrity of the academic record. The editors must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. They should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper. Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
