Editorial Philosophy
The Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education (DSJIE) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the Decision Sciences Institute. Its mission is to publish significant research relevant to teaching and learning in the decision sciences - quantitative and behavioral approaches to managerial decision making. The journal welcomes submissions relevant to the application and practice of the decision sciences both in business and other domains such as, but not limited to, healthcare, product development, and engineering management. Articles submitted to the journal should offer either proven innovation in classroom instruction/delivery, new insights into pedagogy, program development, delivery, or assessment, or empirically based analysis of the application of the decision sciences in learning and education. The goal of the journal is to not only provide resources that can enhance instruction, but serve as a forum for disseminating best practices and new insights.
Types of Articles Published

The following types of articles are suitable for publication in DSJIE:

Teaching Briefs

Teaching briefs describe classroom innovations used to teach specific concepts or problems. They provide information on existing approaches to teaching the concept or problem, but focus on describing the innovation in sufficient detail to allow it to be replicated in the reader's classroom. They also offer objective evidence of the effectiveness of the innovation and its impact on student learning.

Conceptual/Theoretical Research

Conceptual/theoretical research examines contemporary or emerging issues, or propose new approaches in areas including, but not limited to, pedagogy, delivery, and assessment. They are grounded in theory from both the domain of study and supporting areas such as education, learning, and psychology, as well as in the literature specific to the issue being described. Research should present significant new insights into educational practice, make compelling arguments based on objective data in favor of new methods, and/or stimulate future research.

Empirical Research Research

Empirical research provides empirically based insights relevant to education in the decision sciences. It is grounded in the literature, have a sound theoretical foundation, applies appropriate and rigorous methodology, and offers findings that make a new and significant contribution to the literature. Empirical research provides an objective basis for supporting or challenging the status quo, or for proposing new educational approaches.

Note: The Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education does not publish case studies designed for classroom use.
Publication Schedule
DSJIE is published four times a year, in January, April, July, and October.
