JOM: Operations & Supply Management Forum
Welcome to the Operations & Supply Management (OSM) Forum
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.
We hope you find it interesting. If you would like to post a comment on any of the essays below, please click the corresponding hyperlink listed below the essay title and author. These links will open in a new window. If you prefer to post your comments anonymously, please enter "Anonymous" in the name field and enter "firstname.lastname@example.org" in the required e-mail field.
Please note that the views expressed in these commentaries are not necessarily the views of the editors.
