Advances in Applied Probability

Advances in Applied Probability has been published by the Applied Probability Trust for over four decades, and is a companion publication to the Journal of Applied Probability.

It contains mathematical and scientific papers of interest to applied probabilists, with emphasis on applications in a broad spectrum of disciplines, including the biosciences, operations research, telecommunications, computer science, engineering, epidemiology, financial mathematics, the physical and social sciences, and any field where stochastic modelling is used.

For information on how to submit articles to this journal, read our author information.

The process for submitting articles to both Advances in Applied Probability and Journal of Applied Probability is exactly the same. Articles are assigned to one of the journals after the peer review process.

After articles have been accepted and completed the production process (copyediting and typesetting), they will be placed online as FirstView articles until their official date of publication.
