The Journal of Mathematics in Industry is a high-quality open-access journal that brings together research on developments in mathematics for industrial applications, where industry is understood as any activity of economic and/or social value.
In the disruptive period we are living in, in the middle of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemics, scientists, and in particular mathematicians and statisticians, are investing an unprecedented effort to forecast the course of the pandemic and to suggest measures to mitigate its unfortunate effects.
We are conscious that this pandemic will very likely deeply affect our societies, production, health management, and many other aspects of human life. That is why there is an urgency to provide scientifically reliable studies of the many aspects of the problem to policy makers.
This special issue will be devoted to articles that propose data-driven mathematical and statistical models of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and/or of its foreseeable consequences on public health, society, industry, economics and technology.
The editors of this special issue and the scientists of the ECMI Consortium will guarantee a fast and fair peer-to-peer review procedure, in order to provide society with a timely and reliable injection of scientific insights."
