Special Issues

There will be several special issues related to the conference. Authors will be invited to contribute to these special issues. There will be conference special issues in IJOPM and in the journal of the Japanese Operations Management Society.

IJOPM is the official journal of EurOMA, published by Emerald, the world's leading publisher of management research. The objective of IJOPM is to provide insights into the latest theoretical developments alongside practical examples and research evidence. A special issue will be based on the 4th P&OM World Conference focused at high-quality operations management research with empirical focus. Guest editors will invite authors of high quality papers to submit a paper for this special issue.

Computers & Industrial Engineering
CIE aims at an audience of researchers, educators and practitioners of industrial engineering and associated fields. It publishes original contributions to the development of new computerized methodologies for solving industrial engineering problems, and applications of these methodologies to problems of interest to the broad industrial engineering and associated communities. Specifically the authors of quantitative modeling papers will be invited by the guest editors to contribute to this special issue.

JOMS (the Journal of Japanese Operations Management and Strategy), the formal journal of JOMSA, also plans on editing a special issue of the
4th World Conference on Production and Operations Management. The guest editors will review the conference proceedings and invite the
corresponding authors of a collection of quality papers presented at the
conference to revise and submit the drafts to the special issue. The invitation will be sent in this autumn. The JOMS special issue would feature diversified authors from all over the world, including those members from three organisations jointly holding the world conference.
