    TOP is an international journal of Operations Research, created and supported by the Spanish Society of Statistics and Operations Research. English is the official language of the journal.

    The emphasis of TOP is placed on original papers on Operations Research and Management Sciences, covering either mathematical issues of Operations Research or applications to real-world decision making problems provided that relevant methodological novelties (e.g., discussion of new models and methods) are proposed. Invited review articles, describing the state of the art in emerging areas, are also published.

    Among the topics covered are continuous and discrete optimization, games, decision theory, logistics, production planning, stochastic models, simulation, and OR applications.
