The following classification of papers is being solicited to cover a variety of subject areas within operations management, including manufacturing, services, supply chain management and e-commerce.
The OMER seeks to publish:
Case studies relating to operations management (broadly defined), which would qualify for use in classrooms and other learning environments of internationally acclaimed higher education institutions. Case studies should have clear pedagogical objectives illustrating important and difficult issues supported by proper and relevant data. Teaching notes should be included. Case studies should ideally be current i.e. within the last 2 years, although those illustrating key issues in operations management can extend through the last 2 decades.
Lectures on operations management that vary from review articles or textbook chapters to short notes on a particular topic. The publication objectives include achieving clarity of expression and concepts, and therefore, submitted papers are not exclusively restricted to original subject matter. A new way of explaining a concept and/or application would be acceptable for publication.
Advances in Operations Management / Research topics. Authors are encouraged to disseminate research in a form understandable to students of management at the leading business schools, especially to MBA and other graduate students. The OMER seeks papers which summarize new or neglected research in a form which could readily be utilized in teaching environments.
Surveys which are carefully written on critical subjects and identify the most relevant bibliography, including reviews (in review article format) with critiques of relevant books published in the field.
