"Information Technology for Economics and Management" or ITEM is an interdisciplinary outlet for peer refereed reporting on the theory and implementation of optimal or satisfactory solutions effectuated through Information Technology. Particularly solicited are papers that document sound quantitative methodologies empowered by IT to solve important managerial and economic problems.

    The original publications may be on theoretical advancements or applications in Management, Economics, Environmental Management, Operational Research, Optimal Control, Game Theory, Stochastic Processes, Applied Mathematics, Numerical Methods, Computer Science and more. It is ITEM's intention to publish high quality papers that highlight Information Technology as a medium, through which optimal and/or "practical" solutions are applied in the above disciplines

    One objective of ITEM is to publish papers useful for managers and decision advisors working for banks, large corporations etc. To enable them to have an insight into each paper's contents an executive summary of each publication will be mandatory.

    The professional Editorial Board and a large referee base ensure an efficient refereeing process and swift publication of accepted papers.

    It is the goal of ITEM to be a platform for a multidisciplinary discussion of top class researchers whose work possesses the scientific, managerial and implementation components. Hence, the scope of the journal is extensive. Topics include but are not limited to:

     - optimisation and optimal control (discrete, linear, non-linear, dynamic, stochastic)
     - statistics and econometrics (quality control),
     - algorithms ("classical'', neural, genetic),
     - economics (managerial, environmental; central bank problems),
     - finance (valuation, portfolio management),
     - game theory (static, dynamic; cooperative, non-cooperative),
     - information processing, evolutionary programming, biocomputing,
     - decision support and expert systems,
     - environmental management.

    Submitted articles may be papers, survey papers (discuss it first with the Associate Editor), brief papers as well as correspondence. All articles should be written in LaTeX.

    Please see the style in the Instructions for Authors.
