Aims & Scope

Open Journal of Optimization (OJOp) is an open access journal published quarterly. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in all aspects of optimization.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:

· Applications of Optimization in Science and Engineering
Aerospace, Automotive, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial, Mechanical, Mining, Naval, Structural, Robotics and Transportation Engineering
Biology, Toxicology and Forestry
Computer-aided Design, Design Automation, Multi-disciplinary Design, Topology Optimization
Control Theory, Dynamic Systems and Vibrations
Energy Systems and Sustainability
Financial Systems, Business, Management, Economics, Accounting, Supply-chains and Inventory Control
Information Technology and Software Development
Reliability and Robust Design

· Optimization Methods and Theories
Calculus of Variations
Dynamic Programming
Evolutionary Computation
Game Theory
Graph Theory
Heuristic Algorithms
Linear and Nonlinear Programming
Network Algorithms
Optimal Control
Stochastic and Parametric Programming
Swarm Intelligence
Test Problems for Optimization Algorithms

· Optimization of Computational Techniques
Meta-Modeling, Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic
Numerical Methods and Large-Scale Systems
Social Systems Modeling
Time Series Analysis and Forecasting

We are also interested in:

1) Short reports—2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper;

2) Book reviews—Comments and critiques.
