Journal of Management Information and Decision Sciences (JMIDS) is a highly reputable open access journal that is affiliated with the Allied Business Academies. The journal focuses on disseminating the latest innovative research in the fields of management information system and its role in decision making, as well as their relationships to cognate disciplines, including Economics, Finance, Management, Management Science, Marketing, Statistics, Operations Research, and Engineering. The intention of JMIDS is to publish innovative and high quality theoretical and applied papers, including case studies, on a wide range of topics in management information and decision sciences that are directly relevant for academics, researchers and practitioners alike.

JMIDS seeks academically rigorous papers that will appeal to theoreticians and will also have direct relevance to practitioners in management information and decision sciences. Papers that use rigorous mathematical and statistical methods in the empirical testing of theory and models in health and medical economics are strongly encouraged. Case studies that will enable portability of the findings in management information and decision sciences to other studies and disciplines are also welcome.

JMIDS caters to the needs of leading business executives and managerial force that is actively involved in management and decision making. The journal also publishes extensively for managerial IT professionals, and industry practitioners in the fields of business management, information systems, and decision analysis. Sponsored by the Academy of Management Information and Decision Sciences, JMIDS encourages theoretical and empirical research in the fields of Management Information and Decision Sciences, and their relationships to cognate disciplines.

JMIDS encompasses a wide spectrum of innovative topics in the field of management information and decision sciences, and cognate disciplines that include, but are not limited to:




Management Science
