Journals

Several members of the Working Group have worked intensively on the topic of Ethics and OR through different approaches, and many of them have published in indexed journals of our area. The list would be very large but, in any case, there are four special issues that deserve to be highlighted since they were centered on the group itself:

– A dedicated issue of EJDP European Journal of Decision Processes 4/1-2 (2016) with contributions of P.L. Kunsch, M. Lemenestrel & Luk Vanwassenhove, U. Reisach, and F. Wenstøp (see PAST PUBLICATIONS)
