Scope of the Journal

In today’s fast-paced business environment, even with an abundance of

information, decision-making can be complex and slow. As floods of data emerge,

effective information processing is sought as a panacea. Since we have lots of data,

yet are starved for knowledge, the use of innovative techniques is sought as a cure.

With the ever-present spectre of uncertainty, the need for a sound decision is the

objective. As a consequence of these various conflicts and dilemmas, the

employment of efficient data management, leading to better decision-making, is the

goal.

What the Editors say

about IJIDS

I view Information and Decision Science as one of the

most important topics in the global world where huge

amounts of information needs to be filtered and

juxtaposed for any person or organisation to make the

best decisions

Hans-Henrik Hvolby, Professor in Supply Chain

Integration, Aalborg University, Denmark

Technology to collect and process information is

following Moore’s Law. This needs to be coupled with

sound tools and techniques for making decisions and

provide good “return on information”. IJIDS would

serve as a leading forum across multiple disciplines

around the world.

Dr. Vittal Prabhu, Marcus Department of Industrial

and Manufacturing Engineering, Penn State

University, USA

With the globalization of economic activities, the

decisions of firms become more and more complex.

A good decision means that a firm makes a fast and

accurate reaction to the changes of the environment,

especially the changes of the competitors’ strategies.

The development of the information technology

provides an effective tool for the decision-making of

firms. I believe that IJIDS can provide a good platform

for exchanging the ideas on information and

decisions and will become a leading journal.

Tiaojun Xiao, School of Management Science and

Engineering, Nanjing University, Nanjing China

I am pleased and excited to be involved in the

launching of the IJIDS. It is great to be part of a

journal with such a wide, multidisciplinary and open

perspective on how to best use and present

knowledge from the masses of data we swim in

nowadays.

Professor Clive Morley, Academic Director,

Graduate School of Business, RMIT University,

Australia

The availability of massive data is changing the way

decisions are made in today's businesses. IJIDS

covers both emerging and classical subjects in the

area of information and decision sciences and it will

be a forum that makes innovation in how decisions

are made in today's and future business environment.

Takayuki Osogami, Ph.D., IBM Tokyo Research

Lab., Japan
