It is finally here! Going forward, M&SOM blog will the forum for disseminating research, teaching and for general outreach to the society members and beyond. Time will show how the blog evolves, but at the very least we see it serving the following purposes:
1. As a platform for M&SOM Board to update Society members on what is happening in the Society. While we reach out to the society from time to time through M&SOM mailing list, there is no simple way to access older posts.
2. As a supplement for M&SOM Journal. We envision that the authors of work that appears in M&SOM would in parallel write a short, accessible article explaining key findings to wider audiences.
3. As a forum for M&SOM Society members to offer their views and takes on the discipline, including discussion of promising research and teaching approaches. Although we do have OM Forum articles in M&SOM Journal, shorter/simpler articles would be better published as blogs.
Welcome to M&SOM blog and please feel free to offer your views on what would be great to have here!
