    Aims and Scope


    Central European Journal of Operations Research has been accepted for Science Citation Index Expanded, SciSearch, and ISI Alerting Services and will first appear with an Impact Factor in the 2009 Journal Citation Reports (JCR), published in 2010.

    The Central European Journal of Operations Research provides an international readership with high quality papers that cover the theory and practice of OR and the relationship of OR methods to modern quantitative economics and business administration.
    The focus is on topics such as:

    - finance and banking
    - measuring productivity and efficiency in the public sector
    - environmental and energy issues
    - computational tools for strategic decision support
    - production management and logistics
    - planning and scheduling

    The journal publishes theoretical papers as well as application-oriented contributions and practical case studies. Occasionally, special issues feature a particular area of OR or report on the results of scientific meetings.

    CEJOR is a successful instrument that aids understanding of managerial problems in complex systems and supports the decision-making process.
