Advertising Online and in Printed Publications

The OR Society’s advertising for jobs, products and services is delivered through two channels; its website and its monthly news magazine Inside OR

To place an advertisement or for additional information, contact Jennie Phelps at The OR Society ( at the OR Society +44(0)121 233 9300.

To see the current advertisements, see the 'Advertisements', or 'Job Advertisements' page.


Website Advertising

Website advertising is achieved through a banner bar displayed on website pages and a listing on the jobs/products/services advertising page.  Both the listing and banner bar link through to a PDF.

Each time a website visitor loads a webpage a banner bar is ‘selected’ from those active at the time.  Effectively, as a visitor moves from page to page (or refreshes a page), a different active banner bar is displayed each time.

At present, the adverts presented in this way are available to all website visitors; viewing is NOT restricted to members only.

Inside OR  Advertising

Advertising via the monthly news magazine Inside OR is delivered in two media; printed hardcopy and electronic copy.  Adverts are offered in half or full page size; the same basic price applies to both.

Printed (colour) copies are currently sent to approximately 1100 members.

An email directing readers to the electronic version (currently a PDF) is sent to all members (approximately 2500).  Members have to log in to the website to view the electronic version.


The offered pricing model is a simple one; there is no price difference for advertising appointments, products or services.  Prices are offered for advertising in Inside O.R. and on the website, or a small reduction is offered for website advertising only.  A special rate is offered for academic posts.  The same price applies to half and full page adverts in Inside OR, and there is no additional charge for colour.
