Newly announced journal: International Journal of Services Sciences
During recent years, there has been substantial and important growth in the application of quantitative analysis, i.e., operations research/management science, data mining, information, knowledge engineering and intelligent systems, statistics, and related fields to interdisciplinary problems arising in the service industry. International Journal of Services Sciences - to begin publication in 2008 - is a peer reviewed international journal devoted exclusively to research in this important, but under-represented area. It provides the primary forum for both academic and industry researchers and practitioners to propose and foster discussion on state-of-the-art research and development in the areas of services.
