The purpose of this paper is to combine the work of interval-valued fuzzy sets and fuzzy soft expert sets, from which we can obtain a new concept: interval-valued generalised fuzzy soft expert sets. We also introduce some of its operations: complement, union, intersection and study their properties. Then, we use interval-valued generalised fuzzy soft expert sets to analyze a decision-making problem.
