More on this journal...

The main goal of EJIE is to present state of-the-art, high quality, research developments in all areas of industrial engineering, including applications in industry and services, to a broad audience of academics and professionals. Target areas include manufacturing, operations management, product and process design, information systems, business and strategy, and quality management amongst others.

In order to bridge the gap between theory and practice, applications and case studies are particularly welcome. As regards theoretical papers, originality and research contributions will be regarded as key during the evaluation process.

The Editorial Board is committed to a quick and swift process ensuring not only that authors know the outcome of the evaluation process as soon as possible but also that the latest developments and advances are made available without delay to professionals, academics, researchers, and practitioners.


EJIE provides a platform for the dissemination of information, knowledge, and new developments among professionals, academics, researchers, practitioners and policy makers working in the broad field of industrial engineering.


EJIE publishes original full or short papers, as well as comprehensive reviews of special areas in the field. Case studies and real-world applications are particularly welcome.
