Focus and Scope

Algorithmic Operations Research publishes original research papers in the area of operations research and mathematical optimization with an algorithmic focus. The topics of interest include linear programming, integer programming, non-linear programming, combinatorial optimization, semidefinite programming, graph algorithms, approximation algorithms, metaheuristics, online algorithms, randomized algorithms, Optimization algorithms in computational molecular biology, medicine, and all other application areas. The journal welcomes submissions involving development of algorithms, implementation and testing, theoretical analysis of algorithms, computational complexity, experimental analysis, and application and modeling papers with substantial algorithmic contents. Survey papers, short communications, invited software reviews, and invited book reviews are also of interest to the journal.

Peer Review Process

A preliminary assessment of the paper will be made by the editor-in-chief or a member of the editorial advisory board. If the paper is not of interest to the audience of Algorithmic Operations Research or is not judged to have the potential to make a reasonable contribution to the Algorithmic Operations Reserach literature, it will be returned to the authors. A preliminary assessment will not take more than two weeks.

Papers that are successful at the preliminary assessment will undergo more elaborate review by at least two specialists in the area. Based on the referee reports an editorial decision will be made in consulation with at least one member of the editorial advisory board. We make every effort to complete this stage of the review process within four months on the average and no more than six months in the worst case.
