New to SFU — 8 more INFORMS journals!

Published by Mark Bodnar

Logo of the publisher INFORMSA bit of good news to start off 2024: SFU researchers now have access to 8 additional journals from INFORMS (The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences): 

These titles are all now available via our A-Z journal list and searchable via our Library Catalogue (sample). Almost all of them are also indexed in our main business article database: Business Source Complete. Until now, we were only able to read articles from most of these titles after they were at least 5-6 years old... and some (e.g., Strategy Science) weren't available here at all!

If INFORMS sounds familiar, that's probably because we already had access to 9 high-profile titles from the same publisher: 

If you are considering submitting a research article to any of these INFORMS journals, you may be interested to learn that the publisher allows you to upload your Author-Accepted Manuscript (AAM) to noncommercial institutional repositories (e.g., SFU's Summit!) immediately after acceptance. 

Also note that INFORMS requires all authors to have an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID). Learn more about ORCID and register for your own ID via this SFU Library page.

Questions? I'm just an email away...

P.S.: I came across an interesting bit of info while browsing the publisher's site: "INFORMS is proud to count 32 recipients of the Nobel Prize in Economics as authors, collectively producing 101 articles across six different INFORMS journals." More details on the INFORMS page: Recognizing Excellence: Nobel Laureates.
