Focus and Scope


International Journal of Global Operations Research (IJGOR)  is published 4 times a year and is the flagship journal of the Indonesian Operational Research Association (IORA). It is the aim of IJGOR to present papers which cover the theory, practice, history or methodology of OR. However, since OR is primarily an applied science, it is a major objective of the journal to attract and publish accounts of good, practical case studies. Consequently, papers illustrating applications of OR to real problems are especially welcome.

  • In real applications of OR: forecasting, inventory, investment, location, logistics, maintenance, marketing, packing, purchasing, production, project management, reliability and scheduling.
  • In a wide variety of environments: community OR, education, energy, finance, government, health services, manufacturing industries, mining, sports, and transportation.
  • In technical approaches: decision support systems, expert systems, heuristics, networks, mathematical programming, multicriteria decision methods, problems structuring methods, queues, and simulation.

Peer Review Process

Every article that goes to the editorial staff will be selected through Initial Review processes by Editorial Board. Then, the articles will be sent to  reviewer and will go to the next selection by Review Process. After that, the articles will be returned to the authors to revise. These processes take a month for a maximum time. In the each manuscript, Peer reviewer will be rated from the substantial and technical aspects. Reviewer/ peer reviewer that collaboration with International Journal of Global Operations Research(IJGOR)  is the experts in computer science and issues around it. They were experienced in the prestigious journal management and publication that was spread around the national and abroad. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer's recommendation from among several possibilities : rejected, revision required, or accepted. The editor has the right to decide which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published.

  1. Author submit the manuscript
  2. Confirmation to the author
  3. Editor Decision
  4. Double Bind peer review process
  5. Editor Evaluation (some manuscript are rejected or returned before the review process)
