Focus and Scope

International Journal of Global Optimization and Its Application (IJGOIA) is a double-blind peer-reviewed scientific journal published 4 times a year, i.e., March, June, September and December. IJGOIA is an excellent publication platform for researchers and practitioners to contribute in disseminating research results of multi-disciplinary sciences in the field of global optimization and its applications. IJGOIA encompass theoretical, computational, and applied aspects of global optimization and its applications. While the focus is on original research contributions dealing with the search for global optima of non-convex, multi-extremal problems, the journal’s scope covers optimization in the widest sense, including stochastic, nonlinear, robust, multi-objective optimization, mixed integer, combinatorial, computational geometry, and equilibrium problems. Relevant works on data-driven methods and optimization-based data mining are of special interest. In addition to papers covering theory and algorithms of global optimization, the journal publishes significant papers on numerical experiments, new testbeds, and applications in engineering, economics, business, management, technology and sciences. Applications of particular interest include healthcare, computational biochemistry, energy systems, telecommunications, business, economics and finance.
