Network problems are pervasive in our modern technological society as witnessed by our reliance on physical networks that provide power communication and transportation. As well a number of processes can be modeled using logical networks as in the scheduling of interdependent tasks the dating of archaeological artifacts or the compilation of subroutines comprising a large computer program. Networks provide a common framework for posing and studying problems that often have wider applicability than their originating context. The goal of this journal is to provide a central forum for the distribution of timely information about network problems their design and mathematical analysis as well as efficient algorithms for carrying out optimization on networks. The nonstandard modeling of diverse processes using networks and network concepts is also of interest. Consequently the disciplines that are useful in studying networks are varied including applied mathematics operations research computer science discrete mathematics and economics. Networks publishes material on the modeling of problems using networks the analysis of network problems the design of computationally efficient network algorithms and innovative case studies of successful network applications. Since the audience for this journal is then necessarily broad articles that impact multiple application areas or that creatively use new or existing methodologies are especially appropriate. We seek to publish original well-written research papers that make a substantive contribution to the knowledge base. In addition tutorial and survey articles are welcomed. All manuscripts are carefully refereed.
