Call for papers



Int. J. of Multicriteria Decision Making (IJMCDM)


Special Issue on: "Multiple Criteria Decision Making in Finance and Investment"



Guest Editors:
Hatem Masri and Minwir Al-Shammari, University of Bahrain, Kingdom of Bahrain


This special issue will present recent theoretical and methodological developments in multiple criteria decision making in finance and investment. It is intended for academics and professionals who are involved in finance, investment and portfolio selection formulated through a mathematical programming framework and for which a stack of conflicting and incommensurable objectives (criteria, attributes) is simultaneously optimised.


The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Multidimensional Finance, Insurance and Investment (Bahrain, 25-27 November, 2013), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
