More on this journal...

IJDSRM aims to cultivate a multidisciplinary, as well as a thorough and analytic approach, to management and decision-making. It sets out to achieve its aims by promoting high-quality research, integration of scientific methods and research agendas, and sharing of practitioner experience and insight, as applied in the context of decision sciences, risk and management. Explicit and multidisciplinary research in these areas is particularly encouraged.

In addition IJDSRM maintains an international scope and a high-standard refereeing process for achieving its objectives. The journal welcomes research that advances, extends, or combines explicit or multidisciplinary decision science, risk and management research into novel schools of thought, as well as seminal and niche-shaping approaches, that allow decision makers to gain better insights into structured or unstructured and complex management problems that extend from the operational level all the way to strategic.


IJDSRM shapes its content from the research needs of a wide-ranging, but tightly focused set of groups that are actively involved in shaping and advancing the decision making, risk and management fields, including academics and researchers from management, operations research, finance, economics, information systems and technology, as well as decision-making stakeholder groups including company executives, government and policy makers, entrepreneurs and SMEs, regional and international institutions, non-governmental organisations and public-private-partnerships worldwide.


IJDSRM publishes original papers, review papers, case studies and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in decision science, risk, management will occasionally be published.
