The Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications publishes carefully selected papers covering mathematical optimization techniques and their applications to science and engineering. An applications paper should cover the application of an optimization technique along with the solution of a particular problem.

Typical theoretical areas in the journal include linear, nonlinear, conic, stochastic, discrete, and dynamic optimization, variational and convex analysis. Application areas comprise of mathematical economics, mathematical physics and biology, and aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Recent, emerging, and novel areas of optimization, such machine/deep learning, service systems optimization and quantum computing optimization are encouraged.

The Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications journal publishes six types of contributions: regular papers, invited papers, survey papers, technical notes, book notices, and forums (very short papers containing comments on published papers, discussions of open problems, discussions of research perspectives, and so on).
 

97% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • Special Issue on "Optimization Theory and Application to Aerospace Systems"

    Guest Editors: Jason L. Speyer (University of California-Los Angeles) and Mauro Pontani (Sapienza University, Rome)

    Submission deadline: September 30, 2020

    We are pleased to solicit submissions to the Special Issue of JOTA “Optimization Theory and Application to Aerospace Systems”. The objective of this Special Issue consists not only in reporting on the current perspective of the theory of optimal control, but to also explore how this theory is influencing aerospace applications.
