The Journal of Decision Systems JDS is a worldleading journal extending scientific knowledge related to decision making and decision support. Published articles focus on the process of decisionmaking in different environmentsconditions how that process is influenced by specific social andor technical factors and ultimately how new or adapted sociotechnical systems can be introduced to improve decisionmaking.The types of studied decision systems vary in scale. Some studies focus on individual decisionmaking others focus on group decisions others on organisational or community decisionmaking and others on some combination of these. The types of studied decision systems also vary by domain. Examples include systems development human resource management health and wellbeing marketing product design green IT financial services and crisis management to name a few.JDS encourages research that draws on different backgrounds theories and methodologies.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Journal of Decision Systems

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
