The INFORMS Journal on Computing (IJOC) is pleased to announce recent enhancements to the publication process of the Software Tools area of the journal. Digital artifacts associated with submitted papers are important archival research products in their own right, and to improve the visibility and availability of the software and/or data associated with IJOC papers, we have launched an organization on Github! This organization provides a permanent home for digital artifacts associated with published papers and offers a single, comprehensive site for readers who want to access those artifacts. Additionally, this will increase the impact of publication for authors by providing them with a separate DOI that allows these digital artifacts to be recognized and cited as separate research works. The GitHub site is found at https://INFORMSJoc.github.io/. Please explore it and let us know what you think!
Concurrent with this action, the editorial statement for the area has been updated to invite full-length papers along with shorter, software-focused papers. Our aim is to make IJOC the first choice for publishing software and data centric papers in the OR realm. Please join us in building what we expect will become the premier place to publish about software within the INFORMS community!
