Dynamic Games and Applications is devoted to the development of all classes of dynamic games, namely, differential games, discrete-time dynamic games, evolutionary games, repeated and stochastic games, and their applications in all fields, including:
* biology, * computer science, * ecology, * economics, * engineering, * management science, * operations research, * political science, * psychology

DGAA seeks original research that makes significant methodological, conceptual, algorithmic, or empirical contributions to various disciplines. DGAA also considers work in static game theory and dynamic optimization provided that authors establish a clear, potential link to dynamic games. DGAA publishes regular papers, technical notes, survey articles, and case studies.

All submissions should be original in nature. During the peer review process, to promote scientific honesty and high standards, submitted manuscripts go through one or more revision stages leading up to acceptance or rejection.  Each paper is reviewed by at least two experts in the field.

  • The first journal dedicated to the development and application of dynamic games
  • Promotes cross-fertilization among interdisciplinary fields
  • Coverage is on applications to economics and management science, biology and ecology, computer science and networked-based areas including telecommunications, transportation, and energy
  • Free app available on iTunes and Google Play Store

  • Call for Papers: Special Issue on Dynamic Games and Social Networks

    Dynamic games offer a natural paradigm to study strategic interactions of decision-makers in a social network, which typically involves an articulated interaction structure. Depending on the phenomenon under consideration, the behavior resulting from the interactions and the shape of the network structure may or may not affect each other, possibly giving rise to articulated dynamics. ...

  • Call for Papers: Special Issue Dynamic Games in Environmental Economics and Management

    The environment is a matter of urgent concern to individuals, communities, and nations. Issues of concern range from local particle pollution to climate change. Since the environmental quality evolves over time, and economic agents are forward looking, and pollution stocks decay slowly, dynamic games provide the right tools for analysis of environmental issues. In order to provide an impetus to research efforts on dynamic issues of competition and cooperation in environmental management, we are seeking contributions to a special issue of Dynamic Games and Applications, with exclusive focus on the environment.  ...
