Management science should help different managers and policy makers to make optimal, if possible, or satisfactory, at least, informed decisions. IJAMS builds six interfaces: between management science theory and application; between management scientists and managers; between "hard" decision models and "soft" decision models; between deterministic and probabilistic models; between a specific strategy and an individual model; and finally, between a corporation and its environment, as well as the whole of society.


 Topics covered include

  • Business process management, strategy, strategic management
  • Computer sciences, data warehousing/mining
  • Decision analysis, soft decision making
  • Engineering management, financial/industrial/marketing engineering
  • Information systems and technology
  • Interdisciplinary management, knowledge management
  • Mathematics, operations, operational research/management
  • Multidisciplinary research
  • Organisation performance
  • Political science, public sector
  • Production/supply chain management
  • Psychology
  • Quantitative/qualitative management, statistics
  • Revenue, risk, services management
  • Social issues, sociology
  • Systems engineering

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJAMS are to promote applied management sciences and stimulate discussions, deliberations and debates on different management science strategies, principles, models, methodologies, techniques, applications in the field of business, commerce, industry, and government. Two main management science schools of thought, in terms of "hard" decision models and "soft" ones, can intersect, interchange, and integrate their ideas. Managers should be able to absorb, understand, disseminate, apply, and enjoy management sciences in the real world.


IJAMS offers a forum to help professionals, managers, researchers and policy makers to exchange their innovative ideas and effective experiences. A problem solverís burdens can be shared; a practitionerís challenges can be met; a managerís opportunities can be explored; and an entrepreneurís dreams can be realised.


In addition to theoretical and explorative manuscripts, empirical and experimental papers and case studies are particularly encouraged. In addition, the list includes reviews, surveys, reports, notes, practice comments, book reviews, commentaries, news, etc.
