    This special issue of Networks is associated with WARP4, the 4th International Workshop on Arc Routing Problems which took place in Valencia (Spain) from May 22 to May 24, 2022. WARP4 was organized by the Department of Statistics and Operational Research and the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Valencia. It followed the first three workshops held in Copenhagen (May 2013), in Lisbon (May 2016), and in Pizzo (May 2019), respectively, with the aim of strengthening the international network. Specifically, researchers and practitioners with an interest in Arc Routing had the opportunity to share their latest research activities and ideas with the rest of the Community.

    Manuscripts focusing on Arc Routing Problems and strongly related problems (e.g., General Routing Problems and Arc Sectoring Problems) are welcome. The submission of manuscripts dealing with Vehicle (or Node) Routing Problems or Drones are also encouraged. This special issue is not restricted to talks that were presented at WARP4 or to authors that attended the event. The issue is open to the entire Routing Community and gathers contributions on theoretical issues, methodological aspects, and applications of interest for its members.

    The manuscripts can be submitted by sending an email to (subject "Special Issue of Networks"). These manuscripts must not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. They will be refereed through a peer review process, in accordance with the standard procedures of Networks.

    Deadline for the submission of manuscripts: October 31, 2022 (early submissions are encouraged).
