Operational Research - An International Journal (ORIJ) publishes high quality scientific papers that contribute significantly to the fields of operational research/management science (OR/MS) and business analytics. ORIJ focuses on papers presenting new theoretical insights and developments as well as real-world case studies illustrating the implementation of OR approaches in practice. Papers exploring the interactions of OR/MS with other relevant disciplines such as information technology, computer science, artificial intelligence, soft computing and electronic services are of particular interest. This is a unique feature of ORIJ compared to other existing OR journals, providing the means to explore new directions in OR/MS research in an interdisciplinary context. Overview papers from eminent scientists in significant fields of OR/MS and business analytics that review the state-of-the-art in these fields are also welcome.
