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.

Access to paper:

  Papers published in NOLTA are electrically released using web ( Each paper is published on the web pages maintained by J-STAGE, in combination of text-based bibliographical information and complete version in PDF format.

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 Thoery 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.

Editorial committee:
