Special Issue Information
In the last few decades, sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) practices have been developed to integrate environmental concerns into organizations by reducing unintended negative consequences on the environment by production and consumption processes. Existing SSCM literature shows barriers, including complexity and uncertainty, and requirements, including organizational culture and strategy. Decision theory (DT), which provides deeper insight into this, is being studied as a theoretical perspective in SSCM. Thus, at the current time, it is worthwhile to investigate a set of key themes (planning, execution, coordination, and collaboration) and associated research opportunities (with respect to governance, risk, compliance, performance management, and the sustainability dimensions) of SSCM using DT supported techniques and methodology. This Special Issue of Informatics welcomes submissions on the topic of decision support for sustainable supply chain design and management. This inherently interdisciplinary topic draws from research in information science, environmental engineering, management science, artificial intelligence, knowledge engineering and management, and information systems. We encourage authors to submit their original research articles, work in progress, surveys, reviews, and viewpoint articles in this field. This Special Issue welcomes applications, theories, models, and frameworks that are concerned with (but not limited to) the following topics:

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Informatics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
