Issue 1 of 2024 of the IMA Journal of Management Mathematics (IMAMAN) includes a special section on “Empirical forecasting research in healthcare”. Importantly, this issue also sees the introduction of the journal’s Insights from Thought Leaders initiative. The first such article is an invited editorial by Sridhar Tayur of Carnegie Mellon entitled, “The Audacity of BOPE”.

All papers are either open access or have been made available for free to read by OUP.  I hope you enjoy engaging with our journal.

IMAMAN is published by OUP for the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications.
