As editors of the Journal of Operations Management, we would like to encourage academic discussion and debate on issues of importance to the operations and supply management (OSM) community. Therefore we invite authors to submit essays of between 1500 and 2000 words on a topic of interest to the JOM community. Essays that are well written and of interest will be posted for review, deliberation and feedback.
This is a forum for you as an OSM scholar to comment on these essays with 300–500 word responses. After a period of time, we may (at our editorial discretion) bundle each essay with from 2 to 4 responses to form a single document and publish it in a future issue of JOM. Our hope is that this will serve as a forum for debuting new ideas, theories and methods of interest to the OSM community.
Please post your thoughts, comments and responses here. Please provide your name, university or business affiliation and email. To post anonymously, please simply enter “Anonymous” in the name field and firstname.lastname@example.org in the required email field. If we proceed to publish any part of this in JOM, we will contact you for approval and review prior to publication.
