Regular Paper


The mathematical paradigm of complex fuzzy concept lattice gives a platform to analyze the complex fuzzy attributes. The problem is addressed by several reviewers about applications of complex fuzzy concept lattice and its decomposition at user-required information granules. To resolve this problem, one of the methods is introduced using the chosen subset of attributes and properties of granulation defined for amplitude and phase term, independently. One of the real-life applications is also given for analyzing the potential manuscripts for the publications in journal based on changes in reviewer feedback at given phase of time.
