Abstract

We conducted a survey of academically affiliated members of INFORMS to better understand the extent of the current usage of Interfaces. We asked respondents if and how they use Interfaces as a resource in teaching and research, and we also asked a series of questions about their careers and the institutions at which they are employed. Our results show that Interfaces is used mostly in teaching MBA core and elective courses and MS and PhD courses in operations research and operations management. Edelman papers are generally used mostly for teaching and reference in research. In this paper, we describe some differences based on type of academic institution and on whether the respondent is an Interfaces subscriber; we also identify opportunities for Interfaces.
