    Dear colleagues and friends,

    With global supply chain problems in full swing, threatening economic recovery, the management science community is in an important position to play a role in the recovery process. Indeed, new research opportunities have emerged in the last two years, from supply chain resiliency to sustainability, from COVID-19 testing to healthcare delivery, and from reassessing decade-old business models to the digitization of an entire business. In such an environment, our ability to apply data and analytics to improve the understanding of managerial challenges can have an enormous impact.

    In response to these developments, we have seen a dramatic increase in submission volume across all the journal's departments. Similarly, referees, associate editors, and the editorial board provided timely responses and substantive evaluations, despite the pandemic challenges. I am proud of all that we have achieved collectively during these difficult times and would like to reflect in the attached editorial on the state and stature of the journal.

    Happy New Year!
