International Journal of Applied Decision Sciences - to begin publication in 2008 - will promote the infusion of the functional and behavioural areas of business with the concepts and methodologies of the decision sciences and information systems. It distinguishes itself as a business journal with an explicit focus on modelling and applied decision-making.
The thrust of the journal is to provide practical guidance to decision makers and practicing managers by publishing papers that bridge the gap between theory and practice of decision sciences and information systems in business, industry, government and academia. Papers published in the journal must contain some link to practice through realistically detailed examples or real applications. Author(s) are required to demonstrate the managerial relevance and implications of the decision problem. The decision-making environment may include single or multiple decision makers considering single or multiple criteria in operational or strategic domains. The journal draws on a wide range of disciplines, including accounting, decision sciences and management science, finance, information systems, marketing, operations and business process management and strategic and organisational management.
Ii is the flagship journal of Alpha Iota Delta, the international honor society in decision sciences and information systems.
