Here are a few sources. In my opinion, all are to be taken with a grain of salt. Scimago Journal and Country Rank The Scimago Journal and Country Rank (the link goes to the Management Science and Operations Research category) ranks journals according to SJR's proprietary index. The first 7 are: To me, the rankings seem reasonable, if not totally reliable. ...

Personally, I think you shouldn't be merely motivated by quantitative journal rankings as they often rely on measures that could be manipulated. In particular, the impact factor of a journal would increase if the editor required authors to cite a large number of recent publications of that journal. Although the organizations responsible for calculating these ...

Generally, fuzzy sets are not appreciated by the operations research community, particularly in the United States. The topic is not included in any of the standard OR textbooks (like Taha "Operations Research" or Winston "Operations Research: Applications and Algorithms") nor is it part of the curriculum of any undergraduate or graduate program I have seen. ...

I'm going to assume here that we are talking about papers utilizing OR concepts (model, solution procedure, some sort of consequences of interest to the readers) as opposed to "pure OR papers" (theorem-proof, metaheuristic races, ...). Many of the journals in supply chain management and related disciplines (operations management, logistics and even sourcing)...

First, I would agree with your general assessment of Math Programming, OR Letters etc. Between OR Letters and Optimization Letters, I think the main difference is that OR Letters is suitable for general OR work (including optimization) and Optimization Letters is fine for optimization but not suitable for, say, stochastic processes. As to how authors choose ...

Sharing the same reservations on journal rankings I can add some more which are particular relevant for hiring decisions in Germany and Europe. The German association of business administration professors maintains the following journal rankings for different categories: OR: https://vhbonline.org/vhb4you/jourqual/vhb-jourqual-3/teilrating-or/ OM: https://...

Another source providing this information is google scholar. Here is the ranking for mathematical optimization journals. Also as @Chang pointed out here is the ranking for operations research journals. As per one's subject of interest; after a little search, one can get the ranking for other areas as well e.g. game theory and decision sciences could be ...

Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling Journal Description Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling is an open access peer-reviewed journal adopting a broad definition of "biology" and focusing on theoretical ideas and models associated with developments in biology and medicine. Mathematicians, biologists and clinicians of various specialisms, ...

Disclaimer: The following is based on my own thoughts and discussions with colleagues, hence not supported with hard data. Also, I'm no expert in fuzzy theory, but I've good experience with robust optimization and stochastic programming. One line research in OR, which is relatively very active, is the fuzzification of MADM methods (e.g., fuzzy AHP or fuzzy ...

In my opinion, fuzzy sets inherently suggest a notion of uncertainty, e.g. a statement may be “half-true” as it cannot be clearly determined whether it is true or not. This type of uncertainty is very often dealt with in OR through e.g. stochastic programming. So I don’t think there is any limitation of using fuzzy sets in OR, for as long as it solves the ...

Journals focused on electricity/power systems often publish OR papers. Examples include IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid and IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy.

I would say Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization with the following description taken from Springer. Journal Description The journal’s scope ranges from mathematical foundations of the field to algorithm and software development, and from benchmark examples to case studies of practical applications in structural, aerospace, mechanical, civil, ...

There is a very new OR journal with a very broad scope: SN Operations Research Forum In addition to the journals listed in the other answers, there are some military-themed journals: Military Operations Research Journal of Defense Modeling and Simulation: Applications, Methodology, Technology Journal of Defense Analytics and Logistics These may ...

How about ACM SIGMETRICS? Or publications of the Computer Measurement Group? Both have lots of work using modeling, queuing, and simulation.

In reverse chronological order, here are some papers which use OR (or OR-related) techniques to solve problems in evacuation planning: Goerigk, Marc et al. "Ranking robustness and its application to evacuation planning." European Journal of Operational Research 264.3 (2018): 837-846. Swamy, Rahul et al. "Hurricane evacuation planning using public ...

A buzzword that comes to my mind are Flows over time and especially Earliest Arrival Flows. Martin Skutella and students of his have worked out a bit of theory for that, see e.g. An introduction to Network Flows over time, Earliest Arrival Flows with multiple sources, Earliest Arrival Flows with multiple sinks.

Excluding papers listed in other answers... Surveys: Great starting points would be surveys on general evacuation and disaster operations management such as Hamacher & Tjandra (2002) and Dhamala (2014) for time-expanded network flow models. Wright (2006) gives a homeland security-themed survey. General Evacuation: Multiobjective evolutionary algorithm ...

Goerigk et al. (2014) may be a good start to your literature search. It uses mixed-integer programming to propose a genetic algorithm that can be used for urban evacuation planning. Examples of scenarios are provided at the end. A bonus of this paper is that it already contains an extensive literature review in section 1.2. Reference [1] Goerigk, M., ...
