Simulation Workshop 2023 (SW23)

The Journal of Simulation is producing a Special Issue aimed at papers from the OR Society Simulation Workshop 2023 (SW23). We welcome authors who presented at SW23 to submit an extended version of their SW23 papers. The editing team encourages authors to extend their conference papers with scientific backgrounds and research outputs validated by experiments so that submissions can meet the publication guideline of Journal of Simulation (JOS). Contributions from both academics and practitioners covering a wide range of topics, from modelling methodology to simulation analysis to applications, are welcome.

Submission Instructions

Important details:

  • Peer review of manuscripts submitted to the special issue is conducted according to agreed and ethical peer review standards for the publication of articles, so as to ensure the integrity of peer review and assure the quality of published articles.
  • All authors, peer reviewers, and referees comply with the Publisher's guidelines on the ethics of journal publishing and respect the confidentiality of the review process, and that material under review shall be held to be the contributing author's intellectual property unless and until otherwise assigned.
  • Please indicate that your article is for a special issue during the submission process; both in your cover letter and also when asked on the Submission Portal. You should be able to select the special issue title from a drop-down menu, which will help the Editorial Office and the Editors to correctly allocate your paper for peer review.

In the cover letter:

  • Please provide a description of how the JoS SI paper differs from the SW23 version of the paper (the journal paper must also include the conference paper in the reference list, and should similarly describe the changes in the SI paper);
  • If the conference paper is available online (or has been uploaded to a preprint server or archived in an institutional repository), then a link is to be included in the cover letter.
