Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Supply chain management is a critical aspect of modern business operations, encompassing the coordination and optimization of activities involved in the movement of goods and services from suppliers to customers. Mathematical models have emerged as powerful tools for addressing the complexity inherent in supply chain management, enabling decision-makers to make informed choices and optimize various aspects such as inventory management, production planning, logistics, distribution, and network design. This Special Issue aims to explore recent advancements in mathematical modeling techniques and their applications in solving real-world supply chain problems.

The Special Issue invites contributions that cover a wide range of topics related to mathematical models in supply chain management. It seeks to showcase innovative methodologies, theoretical developments, and practical applications that advance the field. The use of mathematical optimization models, stochastic models, simulation-based approaches, and game-theoretic frameworks will be explored. Additionally, the integration of emerging technologies such as machine learning, blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI) in supply chain modeling and decision making will be considered.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. 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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
