MOR Journal Award

2020 MOR Journal Award

  • Promote communication among practitioners of military operations research that is timely, important, and interesting to the MOR Journal audience.
  • Identify and recognize members of the analytic profession who have expanded the application of military operations research techniques, deepened insight into a specific defense area, or improved the available set of analytical tools, while communicating the results of their work to the broader analytical community by publishing an article in the MOR Journal.

Criteria for Eligibility:

  • Individuals must have published a technical article in the Journal¬†during the previous calendar year whose content is judged to be timely, interesting and important to the Journal audience.
