Call For Papers
The Journal of Decision Systems (JDS) is a world-leading journal extending scientific knowledge related to decision making and decision support. Published articles focus on the process of decision-making in different environments/conditions, how that process is influenced by specific social and/or technical factors, and ultimately how new or adapted sociotechnical systems can be introduced to improve decision-making.

The types of studied decision systems vary in scale. Some studies focus on individual decision-making, others focus on group decisions, others on organisational or community decision-making, and others on some combination of these. The types of studied decision systems also vary by domain. Examples include systems development, human resource management, health and wellbeing, marketing, product design, green IT, financial services, and crisis management, to name a few.

JDS encourages research that draws on different backgrounds, theories, and methodologies. We are particularly welcoming to articles that seek to open up the black box of decision-making in a way that produces new insights with clear practical implications.

A range of decision-related topics will be considered; examples include:

    Big Data and Data Analytics
    Business Intelligence
    Clinical and Health Information and Decision Systems
    Collaborative Decision Making
    Context in Decision Making
    Decision Support Systems
    Decision Making During Design and Organisational Change
    Distributed Decision Making
    Emergency Management
    Enterprise Systems
    Evaluation of Decision Systems
    Integrated Decision Support Systems
    Intelligent or Augmented Decision Systems
    Knowledge Management
    Managerial Decision Making
    Mindful Decision Making
    Multi-Criteria Decision Making
    Open Decision Making Behaviour, e.g. Open Strategy, Crowd Filtering/Evaluation
    Production and Logistics Systems
    Situational Decision Making

Proposals for special issues in cutting-edge areas are encouraged and should be discussed with the Editors-in-Chief. All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by Editors, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to rigorous peer-review by independent, anonymous expert referees.

All peer review is double blind and submissions can be made via the JDS submission site

Queries regarding submissions can be made by contacting the Editors-in-Chief, whose decision is final.
