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

  • 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.
