    Aims and Scope

    Economic Quality Control is devoted to all fields related to reliability and quality control in economy, finance, manufacturing, production and inventory. It primarily publishes research articles, but survey articles on a topical area inside the scope are considered, too.

    The journal pays special attention to the interdisciplinary character of the topic. Not only mathematicians, but also scientists, economists as well as scholars from other disciplines contribute papers. The methods and results published thus are of interest to various applications in real life.

    Economic Quality Control has emerged from the identically named Newsletter of the “Würzburg Research Group on Quality Control” which was founded in 1986 by Bernhard F. Arnolds, Elart von Collani and John Sheil. Until 2009 the journal was published in cooperation with Heldermann Verlag.


    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors

    Submitting an article

    ... is done electronically by emailing both a PDF file and the source files (LaTeX) to the Managing Editor or to one of the Associate Editors using the e-mail addresses listed in the Editorial Information.

    Contributions submitted to this journal must be written in clear and concise English. Only unpublished material can be accepted, and authors may not republish their paper in the same or similar form. The decision on the acceptance is taken after a peer-reviewing procedure. The journal makes no page charges.

    The authors can provide the names and e-mail addresses of up to four potential reviewers.

    Each article

    ... must begin with an abstract of less than 150 words. The abstract must be followed by an appropriate classification according to MSC 2010 (Mathematics Subject Classification) and a list of 3 to 6 keywords. The short title for the running head should contain at most 80 characters, spaces inclusive.

    Authors are asked to follow a few basic guidelines while formatting their paper for publication, in order for the journal to be as homogeneous in appearance as possible. Please download the LaTeX class file and the respective sample file including the instructions for formatting here.

    The affiliation, postal and electronic addresses of all authors should be placed at the very end of the paper.

    Figures must be of sufficiently high resolution (minimum 600 dpi). Lettering of all figures within the article should be uniform in style (preferably a sans serif typeface like Helvetica) and of sufficient size (ca. 8 pt.). Uppercase letters A, B, C, etc. should be used to identify parts of multi-part figures. Cite all figures in the text in numerical order. Indicate the approximate placement of each figure. Do not embed figures within the text body of the manuscript; submit figures in separate files. In a TEX document EPS files may be incorporated into the TEX file by using one of the standard macro packages.
    Provide a short descriptive title and a legend to make each figure self-explanatory. Explain all symbols used in the figures. Remember to use the same abbreviations as in the text body.

    Authors are encouraged to submit illustrations in color if necessary for their scientific content. Publication of color figures is provided free of charge both in online and print editions.

    References should be collected at the end of the paper, numbered with Arabic numerals in alphabetical order of the authors' names and surrounded by square brackets. Please use abbreviations for titles of journals in accordance with those listed in Mathematical Reviews.
