Special Issue of Journal of Operations Management on System Dynamics


The Journal of Operations Management has published a special issue on system dynamics in operations, and the articles in the special issue are available open access for the next year at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/02726963/39-40.
The special issue, entitled System Dynamics: Emergence, Reinforcement, Adaptation and Traps, was edited by Elliot Bendoly, Kevin Linderman, Rogelio Oliva and John Sterman.  We thank the editors of JOM, all those who submitted papers for consideration, and the referees for their hard work to bring project to fruition.  The special issue includes the following papers:
