Operations Research Forum is a journal that serves the Operations Research community by addressing a broad range of topics, perspectives, methodologies, and industry applications to foster communication among academics and practitioners, theory and application, and a variety of disciplines (e.g., applied mathematics, computer science, business and economics, and engineering).
The journal covers the entire spectrum of topics, perspectives, methodologies, and industry applications in Operations Research, including, but not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Computational Economics
- Data Mining
- Data Sciences
- Discrete Mathematics
- Financial Engineering
- Linear Programming
- Optimization (Mathematical, Robust, Stochastic)
- Machine Learning
- Management Science
- Mathematical Programming
- Supply Chain Management
- Theoretical Computer Science
with applications in a broad range of industries, including Education, Energy, Environment, Health Care, Manufacturing, and Transportation.
Article types, reflecting the diversity of the community and the types of contributions to the field, include:
- original research articles
- short communications
- book reviews
- reports on computational studies
- case studies
- presentations of new and innovative practical applications
- pre-registration of experiments (through which either positive or negative results may be reported)
SN Operations Research Forum encourages the submission of videos, letters to the Editors (opinions and commentaries), interviews, observations on timely topics, and other supplementary electronic materials designed to enhance reader engagement. Of particular interest are contributions that identify and critically discuss trends or contribute to the public’s understanding of OR—its motivations, its results, its impact. In its commitment to promoting education, the journal welcomes submission of articles from students and their mentors.
The journal is committed to being an efficient enterprise to serve the community. We strive for a constructive peer-review process to be conducted in a timely fashion, with all accepted articles immediately being assigned to a specific volume upon publication.
In addition to direct submissions, Operations Research Forum also considers papers that have been referred from Springer Nature’s prestigious Operations Research, Optimization, and Management Science journals portfolio.

Call for Papers: Operations Research in Africa: Promising Developments (Submission Deadline January 15, 2022)
This special issue in SN Operations Research Forum aims to bring the spotlight on Operations Research (OR) models and techniques that have helped economic developers in Africa to address issues from different fields in business, social sciences, engineering, education, energy, environment, health care, and transportation. Papers included in this special issue will be presented during the 2021 International Conference of the African Federation of Operational Research Societies (AFROS 2021) to be held jointly with the 50th Annual Conference of the Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA) at the North-West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa. Also, we are willing to extend this call for papers to other than those presented during the conference.

'Decomposition at 70: In Honor of Jacques Desrosiers' Birthday and Legacy'
We are proud that we were able to present this virtual conference to celebrate
The birthday and scientific legacy of Jacques Desrosiers. We hope that everyone who had the chance to attend the conference enjoyed it. We also want to thank all of the speakers for their wonderful contributions that day, as well as our hosts and organizers, Guy Desaulniers, Francois Soumis, and Marco Luebbecke. The link to the video from the conference is here.
Organizers and Hosts: Guy Desaulniers, GERAD, Polytechnique Montréal; Francois Soumis, GERAD, Polytechnique Montréal; Marco Luebbecke, RWTH Aachen University
Topical Collections are designed to facilitate the publication of collective research that is either ongoing or time dependent. One of the benefits of a Topical Collection is it gives Guest Editors, Societies, Universities, and Research Groups, their own resource that showcases their research and work in one place.
SN Operations Research Forum welcomes Topical Collections in emerging and hot topics, relevant to the aims and scope of the journal. Topical Collections can also originate from well-established and upcoming conferences or focus on the research legacy of a pioneer in the field as well. We accept proposals for Topical Collections and nominations from Guest Editors.
