Operations Research Perspectives

Operations Research Perspectives

Operations Research Perspectives is an exciting new open access journal in the field of Operations Research and Management Science. It provides a dedicated and safe environment for open access research, with fast online publication on ScienceDirect for all accepted papers.

Operations Research and Management Science has matured over the last 60 years. Nowadays it is a truly interdisciplinary field, intermixing theories and methodologies from mathematics, management science, computer science, operations management, economics, engineering, decision support, soft computing and many more, even reaching into psychology, ergonomics, knowledge management, education, quality management and biology.

Rather than disseminating the different scholarly papers among a large number of journals, or focusing on specialized topics in niche publications, Operations Research Perspectives aims to bring together high-quality papers and original contributions with a potentially far-reaching impact in the field, inside the same journal. As a result, the interfaces between the different disciplines and the richness of the field are bolstered, facilitating new and interesting approaches.

Operations Research Perspectives is aimed at a wide audience, ranging from management scientists, industrial engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, practitioners and scientists working in the operations research field, understood in a wide sense. Similarly, all kinds of submissions, from short notes and technical letters to longer-length research papers, case studies and applications are welcomed. There is no page limit imposed and supplementary materials, including multimedia, are also welcomed.

Operations Research Perspectives operates a rigorous single blind review process, with all accepted papers having at least 2 quality referee reports from prominent researchers in the field.

Benefits to authors

Operations Research Perspectives is an open access journal. The journal and the editorial workflow have been fine-tuned in order to speed up the revision process as much as possible. As a result of these two key benefits, authors' research results are disseminated quickly and openly to the field, which significantly increases their visibility and potential impact.

Another key benefit is a series of cross-editorial agreements with other major operations research journals, namely Omega - The International Journal of Management Science, Decision Support Systems, European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Production Economics, Computers & Operations Research and Computers & Industrial Engineering. Under these agreements, selected high-quality papers that have already been peer reviewed might be accepted in a quick editorial decision for Operations Research Perspectives.

We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more. Please click here for more information on our author services.
