ORiON is the official journal of the Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA) and is published biannually. Papers in the following categories are typically published in ORiON:
• Development of new theory, which may be useful to operations research (OR) practitioners, or which may lead to the introduction of new methodologies or techniques.
• OR success stories, which describe demonstrably successful applications of OR within the Southern African context (at the developing/developed economy interface) or similar environments elsewhere.
• OR case studies, which might not be “success stories,” but which emphasize novel approaches or describe pitfalls in the application of OR.
• OR methodological reviews, which survey new and potentially useful methodological developments, aimed at OR practitioners especially in Southern Africa.
The above list is by no means exhaustive.
