Computational & Mathematical Organization Theory provides an international forum for research that advances organizational theory and analysis through the use of computational and mathematical techniques. The journal presents a new perspective on organizational research that extends the traditional mathematical approach to formal organizational theory by including computer simulation logic and artificial intelligence. It provides a home for organizational research from multiple disciplines where that research focuses on organizations as collections of intelligent agents. The papers fall into roughly three categories: theory development through mathematical and computational analyses; social network analysis as applied to organizations; formal model testing of organization theories using large-scale datasets. A number of the studies across these three categories focus on the process by which organizations operate and evolve. In addition many of the studies bring together both micro (organizational behavior) and macro (institutional and environmental) factors in the analysis of organizations. The editors also encourage applied research representing actual organizational problems and issues on specific industries. Finally the journal publishes special issues on focused topics including organizations of intelligent agents emotions in organizations and organizations and crises. A section of the journal (a few pages per issue) is devoted to tutorial papers including how to check the robustness of a simulation details of the differences between different types of systems how to use simulations to determine what human experiments to run etc. The audience is international in scope. It includes researchers and students in organizational theory distributed artificial intelligence control theory organizational economics social psychology and organizational sociology.
