The analytic hierarchy process (AHP), a methodology proposed by Thomas L. Saaty at the end of the 1970s, is a multicriteria decision technique that has experienced great development in both theoretical and practical terms since its origins. It stands out, among other reasons, for making it possible to incorporate tangible and intangible aspects in the resolution of decision-making problems, as well as its adaptation to multiple-actor decision-making contexts.
With regard to methodological developments, it is worth highlighting its extension to networks called analytic network process (ANP), which allows the incorporation of the dependence between the different elements involved in a decision-making problem. In terms of its development in practice, it has been used to support decision making in a wide variety of areas, such as industry, environment, health, education, government, etc.
Both the development of methodological issues in AHP/ANP and the practical applications of this methodology in decision making remain of interest to researchers. This Special Issue is therefore focused on current developments in multicriteria decision making and the analytic hierarchy process. This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers from academia to present their new and unpublished work in the field of the analytic hierarchy process and analytic network process. This will help to foster future research within the field of multicriteria decision making.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Theoretical aspects in AHP/ANP
- Interactive AHP methods
- Fuzzy and stochastic AHP
- Group decision making in AHP
- Consistency in AHP
- Applications of AHP with real data
- Software implementation
- New trends in AHP

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.
