OR Insight

Following a strategic review the Society has decided to cease publication of OR Insight with the completion of Volume 26. We would like to thank the Editors, the Associate Editors, our reviewers and our authors for their contributions to, and work in support of, the Journal. Archived editions are available on this website.

OR Insight was a publication that appealed not only to O.R. practitioners and consultants, but also to managers and others wishing to learn more about O.R. in practice. The journal sought to inform about not just the scope and potential of O.R. but also developments in related areas.

OR Insight - Scope

OR Insight is published four times a year by Palgrave Macmillan on behalf of the OR Society.

Aims and Scope

OR Insight
aims to be an interesting and stimulating publication that appeals not only to O.R. practitioners and consultants, but also to managers and others wishing to learn more about O.R. in practice. The journal seeks to inform about not just the scope and potential of O.R. but also developments in related areas.

Contributions are particularly sought from O.R. practitioners, consultants and others with experience of O.R.. The journal aims to publish the following kinds of paper:

  • Descriptions of an O.R. project, successful or otherwise, discussing how it was useful and might have been improved, drawing lessons for general use. For complex projects, the discussion should focus on one particular question.
  • Discussions of the process of O.R., problem structuring, definition and formulation, modelling, implementation, consulting, and the management of O.R. activities. Case studies providing insights and enhanced understanding are welcome, as well as analyses of unfortunate experiences from which constructive lessons may be drawn. As a rule, mathematical expressions should be kept to a bare minimum.
  • Reviews from a practice perspective or descriptions of recent developments in O.R. with practical implications.
  • Articles reviewing the relevance of management topics to O.R. practitioners and consultants, for example, innovation management, information systems, simulation, organisational improvement, business process design, etc.

The main criteria for publishing an article will be its readability, topicality, relevance and interest to managers, consultants and O.R. practitioners. Significant redrafting may be necessary to produce an acceptable article.

All submissions will be refereed. Although original contributions are preferred, the Editors will consider practice-oriented papers drawing on more theoretical content published elsewhere.
