Special Issue on: "New Methodological and Practical Developments of the PROMETHEE Methods"


Guest Editors:

PROMETHEE is one of the most popular multi-criteria decision aiding methods. Today, hundreds of applications have been published, several software packages are available, and new methodological developments (including group decision support, preference elicitation, sorting, visual management, etc.) have been proposed.


The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at PROMETHEE Days 2017, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Theoretical advances in the PROMETHEE and GAIA methods
  • Axiomatization
  • Extensions for sorting and clustering
  • Group decision support
  • Rank reversal
  • Preference elicitation
  • PROMETHEE applications
  • PROMETHEE software packages
  • Industrial case studies


Notes for Prospective Authors
