    Just moments ago, INFORMS registered the 2,000,000th full-text download of its journal content during the calendar year 2018.


    This milestone is an impressive testament to the impact and excellence of the 16 refereed academic journals published by INFORMS.


    Recognized for their excellence throughout the fields they serve, INFORMS journals feature prominently in leading business school ranking methodology. The Chartered Association of Business Schools acknowledges five INFORMS journals as "Journals of Distinction" in their 2018 Academic Journal Guide. The Financial Times uses six INFORMS journals in its measure of the research output of MBA programs, which is pooled with a variety of other metrics to determine its ranking of MBA programs. The University of Texas at Dallas Business School Research Rankings includes seven INFORMS journals in its evaluation of the research contribution of business schools.


    INFORMS journals are led by widely respected leaders in operations research, management science, and analytics. We thank each of our editors, and the editorial boards and reviewers who support them, for their continued dedication in evaluating and identifying content that will help our profession meet the challenges of today and prepare for the uncertainties of tomorrow.


    We thank you, our readers, for your continued confidence as you download these articles to learn new methodologies and applications to help make better decisions and improve our world.


    And we thank you, our authors, for your continued trust in INFORMS to shepherd your transformative research into the world.


    We congratulate all of the volunteers and staff who helped INFORMS publications reach this remarkable milestone.
