Giving Thanks during Thanksgiving
As the outgoing editor of the journal of Manufacturing and Service Operations Management (M&SOM), I write my last communication during Thanksgiving to give thanks to many people who have advised me, supported me and helped me throughout the last 6 years. I am forever grateful to everyone!
Despite the pandemic, I am thankful for the support provided by our Operations Management (OM) research community (authors, reviewers, associate editors, department editors, guest editors, and other guest editors of various special issues) and by INFORMS office (Fran Moskwa (managing editor), Matt Walls (director of publication) and Cole Smith (VP of publication). Their unwavering support has made many impossible goals possible!
Last but not least, I am grateful to all former editors of M&SOM who laid the solid foundation for me, and equally grateful to our incoming editor Georgia Perakis of MIT for taking M&SOM to greater heights!
It has been a privilege for me to get the opportunity to serve M&SOM with so many friends and colleagues around the world. I am forever grateful to all of you!
Through our collaborations and mutual respect, our OM community has become bigger and stronger over the years, and I know it will continue to thrive!
Thank you and happy Thanksgiving!
