The ASU Operations Management Review is an excellent compilation and summary of research publications covering emerging topics in operations management. I commend the group of doctoral students that initiated this excellent resource. Biannual updating of the book means that it stays relevant and topical. I highly recommend this book as a “go to” and “must have” resource for doctoral students, researchers and practitioners that require quick understanding of the status of research and future research opportunities in OM.

This is an excellent, interesting read. It’s a great idea on two levels: First, It helps the reader to quickly find and better understand relevant, cutting edge operations research articles, and second, the author interviews at the end are invaluable, allowing authors the rare opportunity to elaborate on what they have published, and help the reader to better understand what they have written. A great idea, flawlessly executed, and an excellent read. Bravo to the ASU Operations Management Review team!
