International Journal of Decision Sciences, Risk and Management - to begin publication in 2008 - will publish scholarly empirical and theoretical research articles that have a high impact on the field of management and decision making. The journal actively fosters the exchange of theoretical as well as practical views, case-based experiences and state-of-the-art applications, which ultimately shape contemporary management and decision making trends in the highly competitive SME sector, extending also to large organisations, institutions and the public-sector.
True management insight is elicited only by comprehending a whole that is more than the sum of its parts. Decision sciences, risk and management therefore form a trinity for contemporary decision-making theory and practice, in essence reflecting the interaction between quantitative models and techniques, uncertainty modelling, qualitative and procedural approaches, respectively. At the same time, developments taking place around the world point that this multidimensional trend extends its reach both within and beyond the business world, including the public sector and the broader institutional level, which are also actively seeking improved efficiency, higher productivity and results-driven policy making and implementation.
