    Dear Colleagues -

    Since Financial Times has listed the journal M&SOM on its top 50 journal list on Jan 1, 2017, I have received requests from different universities in different countries asking me to provide evidence to support M&SOM as a top OM journal.   Clearly, it would be perceived as a self-serving exercise for me to prepare such as a document.   With luck and support, I am blessed to have Professor Behnam Fahimnia (University of Sydney) to prepare a document and Professors Serguei Netessine (Wharton), Erica Plambeck (Stanford) and Georgia Perakis (MIT) to explain the stature of M&SOM at their respective schools.  I have received the permission from all of them to share this supporting document on our blog.   Meaghan  Maegerle  (INFORMS) has posted this blog immediately for your perusal.    The full document is available at:

    Thank you for your support.  With more top journals in OM, our community will thrive!
