Overview


Decision Sciences, a premier journal of the Decision Sciences Institute, publishes scholarly research about decision making within the boundaries of an organization, as well as decisions involving inter-firm coordination.  The journal promotes research advancing decision making at the interfaces of business functions and organizational boundaries.  The journal also seeks articles extending established lines of work assuming the results of the research have the potential to substantially impact either decision making theory or industry practice.  Ground-breaking research articles that enhance managerial understanding of decision making processes and stimulate further research in multi-disciplinary domains are particularly encouraged. Decision Sciences recognizes that a delicate balance must be maintained between publishing traditional scholarly research and promoting novel, seminal research in new frontiers.

Aims and Scope


Decision Sciences, a premier journal of the Decision Sciences Institute, publishes scholarly research about decision making within the boundaries of an organization, as well as decisions involving inter-firm coordination. The journal promotes research advancing decision making at the interfaces of business functions and organizational boundaries. The journal also seeks articles extending established lines of work assuming the results of the research have the potential to substantially impact either decision making theory or industry practice. Ground-breaking research articles that enhance managerial understanding of decision making processes and stimulate further research in multi-disciplinary domains are particularly encouraged. Decision Sciences recognizes that a delicate balance must be maintained between publishing traditional scholarly research and promoting novel, seminal research in new frontiers.


Through its focus on contemporary decision problems, the journal welcomes articles utilizing diverse research approaches that address the many complex phenomena of the decision making process. By publishing articles with theoretical, empirical, and analytical research methods, Decision Sciences recognizes that business scholars often share a common interest in gaining greater insights into complex decision problems, independent of research methods. The journal encourages research examining different types of decision problems ranging from strategic to operational that occur in various forms including inter-organizational, group-based, and technology-enabled. Since approaches to decision making may differ in different economies and cultures, Decision Sciences encourages articles advancing decision making theory and practices around the globe.


Articles published in Decision Sciences must meet high standards of research rigor and originality, while embracing managerial relevance, not only in the research problem studied, but also in their impact on enhanced decision making. The journal also publishes notes dealing with technical and methodological issues as well as theoretically-driven review and integration articles, particularly those focusing on an emerging topic or redirection of a line of research.
