An International Journal of Optimization and Control: Theories & Applications (IJOCTA)


Aims and Scope
This journal shares the research carried out through different disciplines in regards to optimization, control and their applications.
The basic fields of this journal are linear, nonlinear, stochastic, parametric, discrete and dynamic programming; heuristic algorithms in optimization, control theory, game theory and their applications.
Problems such as managerial decisions, time minimization, profit maximizations and other related topics are also shared in this journal.
Besides the original research articles expository papers, which are hard to express or model, conference proceedings, book reviews and announcements are also welcome.

Journal Topics
Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Control Theory,  Game Theory, Fractional Calculus and Applications, Modeling of Bio-systems for Optimization and Control, Linear Programming, Nonlinear Programming, Stochastic Programming, Parametric Programming, Conic Programming, Discrete Programming, Dynamic Programming, Nonlinear Dynamics, Stochastic Differential Equations, Optimization with Artificial Intelligence, Operational Research in Life and Human Sciences, Heuristic Algorithms in Optimization, Applications Related to Optimization on Engineering.

New Open Access Policy


Dear Authors, Readers, Researchers, Peer Reviewers and Editors of IJOCTA,

In line with its main purpose of our journal, we want to inform all of you about some changes that will benefit to keep the actuality of papers and provide your valuable contributions to the relevant areas more rapidly.

  • For accepted papers, unlimited and immediate online access to full article with DOI number and full bibliographic details (i.e. volume, issue, and page numbers) will be provided as soon as peer-review is completed and the requirements of the editorial process is fulfilled. In this regard, we expect from all contributors to continue their contributions taking into account this subject.
  • IJOCTA is a biannual, peer-reviewed open access journal which is published in both printed and online versions. I want to highlight that this policy will continue to do so.
