ASU Operations Management Review

A non-profit project prepared by a small group of dedicated and developing scholars

Since the genesis of operations management (OM), scholars have addressed managerial topics, emphasizing the relevance of their studies. Such effort has positioned operations management as an academic field renowned for its connection to practice.

While we appreciate advances in OM by previous contributors, we face another challenge today. The continuous development in OM has led to a flood of new knowledge, which cannot be easily handled by a single research entity. In addition, the field has also deepened the depth of new knowledge more rapidly. These new challenges increase the friction between stakeholders in the field of operations management.

The vision of ASU OM Review (AOR) is to channel new knowledge learned by PhD students to the stakeholders of OM. AOR assists peer researchers in navigating their research directions through the fresh eyes of AOR editors. In addition, reader-friendly content of AOR eases the understanding of academic knowledge, thus bridging the gap between practitioners and academic scholars.

The Goal of AOR

Improve your knowledge in operations management


How can I keep track of recent research in operations management?

By canvassing through recent publications, AOR saves your time in finding out new canonical research.

How can I advance my OM knowledge?

AOR provides mini-cases and introduces other articles in the related topics, helping you stay abreast of the latest developments in practice and academia.

Where should I start new research?

AOR suggests unanswered questions and presents interviews with the authors, sparking research ideas.

*AOR is updated biannually. Please contact us if you would like to support this project for young scholars.

    This is an excellent, interesting read. It’s a great idea on two levels: First, It helps the reader to quickly find and better understand relevant, cutting edge operations research articles, and second, the author interviews at the end are invaluable, allowing authors the rare opportunity to elaborate on what they have published, and help the reader to better understand what they have written.

  • Professor Adegoke Oke
    AOR is an excellent compilation and summary of research publications covering emerging topics in operations management. Biannual updating of the book means that it stays relevant and topical. I highly recommend this book as a “go to” and “must have” resource for doctoral students, researchers and practitioners in OM.

  • Professor Scott Webster
    Understanding, creating, and communicating knowledge … three pillars of scholarship. This publication, prepared by a small group of dedicated and developing scholars, provides a concise and lucid view to the operations management literature. It illustrates a creative approach to reinforce learning from the PhD seminar and to disseminate knowledge. I believe it will serve as a valuable resource to both researchers and practitioners. Enjoy!
