The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Operations Research and Information Systems (IJORIS) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJORIS.


The International Journal of Operations Research and Information Systems (IJORIS) aims to present new and innovative contributions in Operations Research (OR) theories, applications, and especially case studies, from a wide spectrum of academics and practitioners. IJORIS spans the traditional functional areas of business, including management information systems, production/operations management, business processes, quantitative economics, accounting, finance, marketing, business administration, and international business. IJORIS also incorporates applications from the related natural and social sciences, including the decision sciences, management science, statistics, psychology, sociology, political science, and other behavioral sciences. IJORIS will also encourage exchange, cooperation, and collaboration among business, industry, and government.

IJORIS encompasses and bridges the following seven channels:

The channel between research, practice, and policy
The channel of algorithms, computation and solutions
The channel of business functional areas
The channel of business, commerce, industry and government
The channel of quantitative and qualitative decision models
The channel of theory and applications
The channel spanning frameworks to tool-kits
