The department seeks to publish manuscripts that are at the interface of operations and information systems. Topics include (but are not limited to): how information systems serve as enablers and change agents in operations and supply chain management; how information systems impact the efficiency of supply chain; how innovative processes and information (systems) can be effectively used to manage, integrate, and restructure global supply chains; planning and execution of information systems operations; structuring and modeling of software development/maintenance operations; operational issues in information systems security; the value of information in operational decision making; and supply chain integration using information systems.
We welcome a wide variety of research methods including analytical models, econometrics/empirical analysis, and behavioral research. The published manuscripts must meet the high standards of rigor and novelty, and should have broad managerial appeal. They should possess original content with a significant contribution to the OM literature. Theoretical manuscripts should establish why certain decisions are optimal. Domain specific manuscripts need to provide generalizations of existing methods. Methodological manuscripts should clearly establish superiority of new methods over existing ones. Questions regarding the suitability of papers for consideration can be directed to the department editor.
