Based on soft sets and 𝒩 -structures, the notion of (closed) 𝒩 -ideal over a BCI-algebra is introduced, and related properties are investigated. Relations between 𝒩 -BCI-algebras and 𝒩 -ideals are established. Characterizations of a (closed) 𝒩 -ideal over a BCI-algebra are provided. Conditions for an 𝒩 -ideal to be an 𝒩 -BCI-algebra are considered.
