  • An official journal of the OR Society
  • A single source of accessible research and practice in the fast developing field of discrete-event simulation

Journal of Simulation (JOS) publishes methodological and technological advances that represent significant progress toward the application of simulation modelling-related theory and/or practice. Particular interest is paid to significant success in the use of simulation.

In Journal of Simulation, the field of simulation includes the techniques, tools, methods and technologies of the application and the use of discrete-event simulation, agent-based modelling and system dynamics. The journal encourages theoretical papers that span the breadth of the simulation process, including both modelling and analysis methodologies, as well as practical papers from a wide range of simulation applications in domains including manufacturing, service, defence, health care and general commerce. It particularly seeks topics that are not “mainstream” in nature but interesting and evocative to the simulation community.

    Journal of Simulation (JOS) aims to publish both articles and technical notes from researchers and practitioners active in the field of simulation. In JOS, the field of simulation includes the techniques, tools, methods and technologies of the application and the use of discrete-event simulation, agent-based modelling and system dynamics. We are also interested in models that are hybrids of these approaches. JOS encourages theoretical papers that span the breadth of the simulation process, including both modelling and analysis methodologies, as well as practical papers from a wide range of simulation applications in domains including, manufacturing, service, defence, health care and general commerce. JOS will particularly seek topics that are not "mainstream" in nature but interesting and evocative to the simulation community as outlined above.

    Particular interest is paid to significant success in the use of simulation. JOS will publish the methodological and technological advances that represent significant progress toward the application of simulation modelling-related theory and/or practice.

    Other streams of interest will be practical applications that highlight insights into the contemporary practice of simulation modelling; articles that are tutorial in nature or that largely review existing literature as a contribution to the field, and articles based on empirical research such as questionnaire surveys, controlled experiments or more qualitative case studies.

    Shorter technical notes will also be considered.
