Special Issue Information
Multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) techniques can be divided into two major groups. The first is discrete MCDA, including multi-attribute utility theory (MAUT), the analytic hierarchical process/analytic network process (AHP/ANP), and outranking methods, in which the decision-maker must evaluate a finite set of alternatives to a) select the best option, b) rank alternatives from the best to worst, and c) classify alternatives into predefined classes or the described options. The second is continuous MCDA, including multi-objective programming and goal programming, in which there is an infinite set of alternatives.
Over the last few decades, MCDA techniques have been successfully applied to complex decision-making problems in a wide range of fields, including economics, finance, logistics, environmental restoration, health, or industrial organization, to name but a few. Imprecision and uncertainty have been incorporated into the decision-making process and applied to group decision-making contexts.
The scope of this issue is MCDA in a broad sense, focusing on recent advances in both discrete and continuous techniques and significant applications in different fields.
As the title suggests, this Special Issue is a continuation of the Special Issue “Recent Advances and Applications in Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis” which has successfully included some excellent papers. We hope that this new Special Issue will attract the attention of more scholars who wish to publish their interesting insights here.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 2100 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.
