SN 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, SN Operations Research Forum also considers papers that have been referred from Springer Nature’s prestigious Operations Research, Optimization, and Management Science journals portfolio.

Decomposition at 70: In Honor of Jacques Desrosiers' Birthday and Legacy (Submission Deadline: March 10, 2020)
Column generation and branch-and-price are decomposition-based methods to solve large scale, structured integer programming models. Over the years, these techniques became an essential part of solving models arising in many practical applications. Contributions to the success of the methods came from all over the world, in particular from Montreal, and there in particular from Jacques Desrosiers. Jacques turns 70 in June 2020, and this topical collection contains works dedicated to his oeuvre. We seek contributions from the entire spectrum of theory to applications, from all disciplines, related to decomposition methods like Dantzig-Wolfe, Lagrange, and Benders; these could be original research articles, surveys, technical notes, perspectives, expositions of software, application reports, insightful failed experiments, etc.

This special issue will offer a collection of articles discussing the innovative use of optimization modeling languages (AMPL, GAMS, LINGO, MPL, …) and/or technical computing systems (Matlab, Mathematica, Maple, …) in Operations Research (O.R.) courses held at colleges and universities. We solicit submissions discussing related current research and teaching practice. Code collections and coded examples used in the classroom, and made available for educational use, will be particularly welcome.
