About Journal

Industrial engineering is an engineering profession that is concerned with the improving and optimizing of complex processes, systems, or organizations by analyzing, monitoring, developing, improving and implementing integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy and materials. Over the years, computers and data engineering have become an integral part of industrial engineering. Journal of Industrial Engineering International; JIEI in 2003 is aimed at an audience of researchers, educators and practitioners of industrial engineering and associated fields. To accomplish its goals, the journal has been publishing quarterly about 10 full-text articles per each issue in English since 2005. JIEI rapidly obtained the scientific-research journal score by the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. From 2012 to 2019, this journal was published by the Springer open access and also, ranked as a Q1 journal by Scopus in 2018.


JIEI publishes original contributions on the development of methodologies for solving industrial engineering problems and encourages submissions that expand the frontiers of the fundamental theories and concepts underlying industrial engineering techniques. Papers reporting on applications of industrial engineering techniques to real-life problems are welcome, as long as they satisfy the criteria of originality in the choice of the problem and the tools utilized to solve it, the generality of the approach for applicability to other problems, and significance of the results produced.


We are also interested in mathematical and statistical models that are hybrids of engineering approaches. JIEI encourages theoretical papers that span the breadth of industrial engineering, including both modeling and analysis methodologies, as well as practical papers from a wide range of applications in domains including, manufacturing, service, logistics, defense, health care, financial engineering, data engineering, soft computing,  quality, and reliability methods. JIEI will particularly seek topics that follow quantitative techniques rather than qualitative ones.


JIEI is an open access journal and follows a double blind peer-review policy. Submitted articles will be published after two /three rounds of reviewing and editorial approval. Being innovative and original, as well as using up-to-date references in scientific subjects and authentic sources and documents in industrial engineering subjects are required for the submitted articles. The journal uses iTenticate for checking similarity and plagiarism for manuscripts. All publication charges are paid by the journal publishing a paper in JIEI is free for authors. JIEI follows the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and complies with the highest ethical standards in accordance with ethical laws.
