INFORMS News: Call for Papers: Policy Analytics

The Annals of Operations Research seeks submissions for a special volume on policy analytics. The deadline for submission is Oct. 31. The guest editors are: Katherine Daniell (Australian National University), Alec Morton (London School of Economics) and David Rios Insua (Royal Academy of Sciences, Spain).

The special issue seeks papers presenting both conceptual advances and innovative applications, recognizing that public sector applications must balance the need for robust and convincing analysis with legitimate public expectations about transparency and opportunities for participation. Papers may deal with contributions through different phases of the policy cycle, from issue identification to policy testing and analysis to policy implementation and evaluation.
