 SSY Home > Vol. 6 (2016) open journal systems 

Focusing on the interface of applied probability and operations research, Stochastic Systems is the flagship journal of the INFORMS Applied Probability Society and is published through a cooperative agreement between INFORMS and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. This open-access journal seeks to publish high-quality papers that substantively contribute to the modeling, analysis, and control of stochastic systems. A paper’s contribution may lie in the formulation of new mathematical models, in the development of new mathematical or computational methods, in the innovative application of existing methods, or in the opening of new application domains.

A partial list of applications of interest is service operations; healthcare; logistics and transportation; communications networks (including the Internet); computer systems; finance and risk management; manufacturing operations and supply chains; market and mechanism design; revenue management and pricing; the sharing economy; social networks; cloud computing.

Relative to other applied probability outlets, Stochastic Systems focuses exclusively on operations research content. Relative to application-focused journals, Stochastic Systems publishes papers in which applied probability plays a significant, and not just supporting, role.

Stochastic Systems is sponsored by the INFORMS Applied Probability Society. The Applied Probability Society gratefully acknowledges the generous support of:
