When it was published recently, the paper, The risks and opportunities in starting a carbon trading firm within the carbon marketplace, (IJ Sustainable Development, 14(1/2), 2011, 141-153) became paper number 40,000 in the Inderscience Online Collection. The Collection is fully searchable and represents a significant body of research covering the past 30 years. Given the expansion of our journal collection (323 titles to date, with more to come), the Collection will continue to grow apace. Details of prices for the full Collection or subsets of it may be obtained by contacting subs@inderscience.com.

Multiple Criteria Decision Making

Constantin Zopounidis, John Psarras

Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Multicriteria Decision Making

 

Real world decision making problems are usually too complex and ill-structured to be considered through the examination of a single criterion, attribute or point of view that will lead to the “optimum” decision. In fact, such a “unidimensional” approach is an oversimplification of many decision problems, which usually leads to unrealistic recommendations. A realistic approach to decision making problems requires the consideration of all pertinent factors. However, in order to implement this approach some very essential issues/questions should be addressed... More

Smart-Space Research Group, George Mason University

João Pedro Sousa

Editorial Board Member, International Journal of Space-Based and Situated Computing

 

George Mason University’s Smart-Space Research Group, led by João Pedro Sousa, has a strong agenda on several fronts, ranging from applications to foundations of software for smart spaces. CPSS (Cyber-Physical Safety Systems) looks at the spaces where we live, travel and work as caretakers of our safety. Current evacuation plans are static: signs posted on walls inform occupants of the nearest exit, or maybe of primary and secondary routes, but how is someone to know if that route is safe when a hazard strikes? What if the planned route is blocked by fire? More

Simulation and modelling have become essential components of research in many fields these days. The Inderscience collection currently contains some 19 titles. General titles include those on mathematical modelling and numerical optimisation, and simulation and process modelling. In specific fields, we cover engineering systems modelling/simulation, modelling in operations management, vehicle systems modelling/testing, and modelling, identification and control. There is also a journal devoted to computational fluid dynamics. Related areas such as experimental design and process optimisation are also addressed. Three titles cover the broad area of human factors and associated topics: human factors modelling/simulation, human factors and ergonomics, and the digital human. Virtual technology and multimedia are also represented.

 

The full list of journals may be found at http://www.inderscience.com/simulation, with links to the home pages.
