Management Science

Management Science is one of the association's flagship publications. Publishing monthly, Management Science is a scholarly journal that disseminates scientific research focusing on the problems, interests, and concerns of managers.

The scope includes research that addresses management issues using tools from traditional fields, such as OR/MS, mathematics, statistics, industrial engineering, psychology, sociology, and political science, as well as cross-functional, multi-disciplinary research that reflects the diversity of the management science profession.

Topics covered in Management Science include:
  • Business Strategy
  • Decision Analysis
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Operations
  • Optimization and Modeling
  • Product Development
  • Simulation
  • Social Networks
  • Stochastic Models
  • Supply Chain Management

Management Science also strives to stimulate research in emerging domains created by economic globalization, public policy shifts, technological improvements, and trends in management practice. Its audience includes academics at business and engineering schools and managers open to the application of quantitative methods in business.

"BusinessWeek continues to include four INFORMS journals (Marketing Science, Operations Research, Management Science, and Information Systems Research) among the top 20 journals valued by business school deans and academic program directors."
