International Journal of Decision Support System Technology

Resource Type:
Impact Factor:

“The primary objective of the International Journal of Decision Support System Technology (IJDSST) is to provide comprehensive coverage of DMSS [Decision Making Support Systems] technology issues.” DMSS are “information systems that interactively support the decision making process of individuals and groups in life, public, and private organizations, and other entities.” … DMSS issues “can involve, among other things, new hardware and software for DMSS, new models to deliver decision making support, dialog management between the user and system, data and model base management within the system, output display and presentation, DMSS operations, and DMSS technology management. Since the technology’s purpose is to improve decision making, the articles are expected to link DMSS technology to improvements in the process and outcomes of the decision making process. This link can be established theoretically, mathematically, or empirically in a systematic and scientific manner”.

Decision Making Support Systems (DMSS) “include Decision Support Systems (DSS), Executive Information Systems (EIS), Expert Systems (ES), Knowledge Based Systems (KBS), and Creativity Enhancing Systems (CES). Other DMSS, such as Executive Support systems (ESS), Management Support Systems (MSS), Artificially Intelligent Decision Support Systems (IDSS), and Decision Technology Systems (DTS), integrate the functions of DSS, EIS, ES, KBS, or CES, to provide more comprehensive support than the individual separate systems.”

IJDSST publishes papers relevant to the third domain of i2S (providing integrated research support for policy and practice change).
