We are glad to introduce this Special Issue of Axioms, which focuses on multi-criteria decisions. In the past, multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) was housed in the operations research silo; however, over the years, it has been realized that multi-criteria decisions permeate almost every sphere of human endeavour—business, computing, engineering, medicine, law, etc. Multi-criteria decision analyses have considerably expanded beyond the classical and formal methodologies, and have also involved intuitive and informal processes. There is a need to have a multi-disciplinary platform for sharing and extending knowledge on multi-criteria decisions.
This Special Issue focuses on the science and art of multi-criteria decisions, especially in multi-disciplinary settings. We expect to publish high quality papers in the categories of discovery, integration, application, and teaching of multi-criteria decisions. The impact of such articles will be far reaching, especially in a fast-paced world that is constantly dealing with decisions involving analysis of (mostly conflicting) multiple variables. As noted by Miller (1956), the human mind can effectively manage a combination of 7 ± 2 pieces of information consecutively; beyond this level, the decision process experiences some apparent decay, which could impact on the outcome.
