Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) substantially evolved during the past decades and became one of the most important areas in Operational Research in Civil Engineering and Management Science. In Europe, this area is closely related to research performed by Professor Edmundas Kazimieras Zavadskas.
Edmundas Kazimieras Zavadskas received the M.S. degree in civil engineering from Vilnius branch of Kaunas University of Technology, Kaunas, Lithuania, in 1967, the Ph.D. degree from Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU), Vilnius, Lithuania in 1973, and the USSR doctor of science degree from Moscow State University of Civil Engineering, Moscow, Russia, in 1987.,Currently, he is the Head of the Department of Construction Technology and Management at VGTU. His research interests are building technology and management, decision-making theory, automated design, and decision support systems. Dr. Zavadskas is a member of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences.
Professor is still a very active scientist. His published over 50 books, including 5 textbooks and 16 monographs as a single author, or in collaboration with other authors, 10 popular science books, over 400 research articles as well as several hundreds of articles on various social and cultural topics. He has edited over 20 collective volumes.
Professor E. K. Zavadskas has set up three famous international scientific journals: “Technological and Economic Development of Economy”, “Journal of Civil Engineering and Management” and “International Journal of Strategic Property Management”.
Since 2008 all three journals have been referred in Thomson Reuters Web of Science database, and since 2010 – have impact factor (IF). Furthermore, since 2010 these journals are published by VGTU publishing house “Technika” in collaboration with a famous publishing house – Taylor & Francis. During the 20 year period, these journals have achieved the highest quality level between this type of journals.
In 2011 “Technological and Economic Development of Economy”, a journal present in the engineering field in the Thomson Reuters database was nominated in the “Rising Star” category. In that year, Professor E. K. Zavadskas was nominated in “Rising Star in the Scientists” category in the Thomson Reuters database.
