Aims & Scope


Journal of Operational and Strategic Analytics (JOSA) is fully refereed international open access journal focusing on data-driven analysis and decision-making that relies on the application of statistics, computer programming, and operations research to quantify organizational performance and decisions. The mission of JOSA is to increase theoretical and practical knowledge to solve problems related to individuals, businesses, organizations, governments, and societies. We welcome original submissions in various forms, including reviews, regular research papers, and short communications, as well as Special Issues on particular topics. We consider submissions representing a wide range of scholarship, which provides an increased understanding of the use of analytics in organizations and entities.
