Abstract

A large amount of decision support systems for different management areas exist. Literature on decision systems supporting environmental management in particular is relatively limited. Given this evolving research field, the goal and purpose of this paper is to explore the scientific research in international scientific journals that focus on decision support systems for environmental management. In this paper, a brief review was conducted to recent publications in some of the respected journals and conferences. Published scientific research from 2010 to 2015 is reviewed based on the following: (i) what are the main components used in the decision support system, and (ii) how environmental support systems are integrating with other techniques and methods to optimize the needed solutions. The DSS tools and components play a great role in solving the complexity problem of the eco-system and in the environment. According to our review, researchers found that environmental problems have common characteristics. EDSS, also, has been used in different fields. A further critical analysis should be completed and gaps in the current literature are to be identified in the future to identify improvements for such systems and possible future directions.
