Dr James Smith is President of Foundation of Unity, Inc., Lockport, NY, USA.


The Editor invites contributions which describe micro and macro social environments in the technological age, while pointing to moral standards in building, maintaining and regulating such systems. The Collection aims mainly to draw on Basic Formal Ontology, though not exclusively so. 

The Editor seeks contributions from economists, physical scientists, sociologists, psychologists and neuroscientists, among others, that will each deal with the ontology, or what actually exists, and how they interact as well as the emergent network effects of those interactions feeding back on the human system and the environment.

    Chapter Guidelines

    A Chapter will normally be between 3000 and 6000 words, but these are not strict word limits, and can be discussed with the Editor. They should be written in English, and presented to the Editor complete and free of spelling and grammar errors. Please see our Manuscript Submission Guidelines for more information. 

    Chapter Authors will be asked to sign a simple Contributor Agreement, and to warrant that a Chapter does not infringe any copyright or other rights, and that the Author holds the rights to publish the work.
