IJSPM is a fully refereed publication providing an international forum for high-quality papers seeking to discuss simulation and process modelling issues.
The objectives of IJSPM are to develop the theory and practice of simulation and process modelling. It aims to provide a unified discussion forum for academics, researchers and practitioners interested in the modelling and simulation of business processes, production processes, service and administrative processes and public sector processes. Ultimately, IJSPM seeks to disseminate peer reviewed papers relevant to the simulation and process modelling communities.
Researchers and academics, industrial engineers, management scientists, operations managers, consultants and other practitioners, professional associations, software houses and software developers.
IJSPM publishes original papers, state-of-the-art reviews, modelling papers, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews and notes, commentaries, and news relevant to the journal. Suggestions for special issues and publications are welcome.
Topics covered include:
Theory, methodology, techniques, tools
