Operational research has become an indispensable tool in business and military applications. Modelling and analysis play major roles in abstract representation of business systems and data analysis and the subsequent generation of relevant information for making more accurate decisions. IJMOR covers new mathematical theory and applications in OR and management science models and techniques for solving problems in manufacturing and service organisations. Key problem areas include marketing, design, engineering, production, logistics, procurement, finance and accounting, information systems and supply chains.


 Topics covered include

  • Mathematical theory/applications
  • Applications of mathematics in management science
  • Innovative applications of mathematics in optimisation
  • Mathematics in developing computational theory/applications
  • Algorithms for efficient solution methodology
  • Mathematics of discrete/continuous/stochastic optimisation
  • Stochastic theory/models, statistical tools/techniques
  • Mathematical/dynamic/stochastic programming
  • Simulation techniques, AI/expert systems, machine learning
  • Control theory/methodologies, reliability
  • Mathematics of inventory theory/models
  • Queuing/transportation/location/network/game/scheduling theory/applications
  • Marketing models/optimisation, decision theory/support systems
  • OR mathematics in procurement/manufacturing/distribution/finance/accounting
  • Applied mathematical techniques in data mining/storage management
  • Supply chain management/modelling/analysis

More on this journal...

IJMOR aims to help professionals working in the field of mathematics, operational research and management science, industrial engineering, information systems, and business, academic educators, industry consultants, and practitioners to contribute, to disseminate and to learn from each otherís work. A global business perspective and its implications are emphasised. IJMOR will

  • raise the awareness of importance of applications of mathematics in operational research and management science
  • focus on excellence in developing operational research and management science techniques, models and solution methodology to solve problems in the information-intensive global society
  • provide insights regarding the latest operational research and management science techniques and applications, and
  • offer a networking forum for academics, mathematicians, operational research and management scientists and practitioners, professionals and entrepreneurs.


IJMOR is a forum to help academics and researchers, applied mathematicians, practitioners, and operations and management science professionals, in all areas of business applications. It will enable academics and practitioners working in the field of applied mathematics, and mathematical theory and applications in operational research and management science, to discuss important mathematical ideas and applications, and disseminate information for mutual learning and pursue fundamental research in operational research and management science.


IJMOR publishes original papers, review papers, theory and methodology papers, industrial papers, technical notes, and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in mathematics of operational research and management science are welcome.
