OR Insight: 25 articles from 25 years

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the journal OR Insight, its editors have reviewed the papers published over the last three decades and have made a selection of 25. These reflect both the way the application of OR has developed over the years and the different areas which have benefited from its application. OR in action has always found a home in OR Insight.

Although all 25 articles are interesting, you might want to consider article #21 by Dr. Vasko and Dr. Ache, Department of Mathematics, and Natalie Snow, Institutional Research.
