The International Journal of Forecasting (IJF) has announced a Special Issue on judgmental forecasting, and more specifically on elicitation, structuring and evaluation of expert judgment. The Special Issue will be edited by George Wright (Strathclyde University, UK), Gene Rowe (Gene Rowe Evaluations, Norwich, UK), and Fergus Bolger (University of Durham, UK).
This is of great interest and relevance with the scope of the Forecasting Society and fully demonstrates the importance of management judgment and expert knowledge in business forecasting. Just to note that the previous Special Issue on (group-based) judgmental forecasting appeared on IJF three years ago and was again edited by Wright and Rowe. I am personally looking forward to this forthcoming special issue and I am confident that will have a considerable impact on the forecasting literature.
See the official call for papers at the IJF’s webpage. The deadline for submitting an article is the 31st of March, 2015.
