Mission Statement

The Department seeks to publish papers at the interface of operations and economics that use economic modeling tools to study the interactions between cooperative or competitive firms and consumers. Papers that adopt a quantitative approach to analyze problems taking into account uncertainty and/or a dynamic environment are especially encouraged for submission. Topics include (but are not limited to) industrial organization theory as related to strategic interactions between firms which may be influenced by government regulations and/or have policy implications; game theory applications involving cooperative or non-cooperative behavior; contract design problems to provide incentives or to induce revelation of private information using adverse selection, moral hazard, or signaling techniques; procurement auctions; pricing; and consumer behavior. We welcome a wide variety of research methods including applied economic theory. Papers with analytical models accompanied by econometrics/empirical analysis are also encouraged. All published research must meet the high standard of rigor and novelty, and have broad managerial appeal. Questions regarding the suitability of papers for consideration can be directed to the department editor.
