The IMA Journal of Management Mathematics is published on behalf of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) by Oxford University Press. The Journal is now in its 21st year of publication (published quarterly) and has enjoyed a constant stream of high quality submissions and a high reputation in Europe in many areas of Operational Research and Management Science, such as Industrial Maintenance, Health Care Management/ Statistics, Financial Modelling and Risk Analysis, and Credit Scoring. In recognition of its standing, the Journal has recently been accepted for listing by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).
The journal is well known for its consistency in publishing high quality original research papers, without letting the standards drop in favour of volume. A recently re-organised editorial board aims at maintaining the high standards of the journal whilst expanding its thematic and geographical scope, thereby positioning it in the top-tier of publications in the field. The review process is based on a very careful and selective initial review by the Editors and a strong team of Associate Editors (AEs) with responsibility for particular thematic areas. By assigning an important role to the AEs, the journal continues to ensure the selection of the most appropriate reviewers to judge the value of the manuscripts.
As part of the re-organisation of the Journal, contributions are invited in the area of Inventory Management ? with a particular emphasis on quantitative modelling. More information about the Journal may be obtained at the following website:
