The vast amount of information that must be considered to solve inherently ill-structured and complex strategic problems creates a need for tools and techniques to help decision makers recognize the complexity of this process and develop a rational model for strategy evaluation. The International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences (IJSDS) is a double-blind refereed journal whose focus is to promote the infusion of strategic decision-making with the analytical methods. IJSDS distinguishes itself as a business journal with an explicit focus on analytical strategic decision-making. The journal provides a publication vehicle for theoretical and empirical research as well as real-world applications and case studies. Papers published in IJSDS should not only meet high standards of research rigor and originality in decision sciences, but also embrace strategic decision-making.

The principal objective of the International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences (IJSDS) is to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, practicing managers, academic and research institutions, and persons concerned with the development of new methodologies to formulate and solve strategic problems by applying decision sciences methods. IJSDS provides conceptual and pragmatic guidance to decision makers by publishing papers that bridge the gap between strategic decision-making and decision sciences in business, industry, government and academia. The decision-making environment may include single or multiple decision makers considering single or multiple criteria strategic problems. IJSDS draws on a wide range of disciplines, including but not limited to accounting, finance, information systems, international management, marketing, organizational management, operations research, production and operations management, and strategic management.

Testimonials and Reviews

"The increased global competition and the increased demand for oil and other commodities, as well as the need for better security, forces companies to make careful analysis of their strategic decisions. These needs have been recognized by researchers and vendors who are developing more and more sophisticated tools and methodologies to improve decision making. Therefore, I see a clear need for the International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences which is concentrating on these topics."
- Efraim Turban, California State University - Long Beach, USA

"The purpose and aim of the International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences is significant and its topic area is one that has been in need of focused research attention for some time."
- Ronald J. Ebert, University of Missouri, USA
