Analytics Magazine

New look for PubsOnLine, same great content

INFORMS has updated its PubsOnLine platform and design to better align with INFORMS’ storytelling mission – to lead with our content and the work being done by our members in operations research and analytics. The update takes advantage of new advances in UX design – as did the overhaul of www.informs.org (IOL) in April 2017 – to include more intuitive navigation, bold graphics and an overall more enjoyable reader experience in a completely mobile responsive environment.

The emphasis on spotlighting featured content is evident both on the PubsOnLine homepage and on all individual journal pages. A graphics-heavy banner slide shows the most recent editor picks; recent content is at the forefront of each page, making for easy navigation of the latest content published by INFORMS.

The “soft launch” of PubsOnLine took place on July 9, a birthday present for Matt Walls, director of publications, who led the content migration. “The launch caps six months of discovery, design, engineering and testing. A tremendous thank-you is due to the team from INFORMS for their tireless help in the final push to live,” Walls says.

Part of the redesign includes a migration of INFORMS magazine content from IOL to be hosted on PubsOnLine to join all other INFORMS publications. The full archive of magazine content should be migrated by the INFORMS Annual Meeting in November.

Christopher E. Marks of the U.S. Army and Jytte Klausen of Brandeis University. Read more →

Syrian conflict yields model for attrition dynamics in multilateral war

Based on their study of the Syrian Civil War that’s been raging since 2011, three researchers created a predictive model for multilateral war called the Lanchester multiduel. Unless there is a player so strong it can guarantee a win regardless of what others do, the likely outcome of multilateral war is a gradual stalemate that culminates in the mutual annihilation of all players, according to the model.
