Optimization modelling has many and varied active fields of research, both theoretical and practical. We link to several online magazines that may be of interest to academics and practitioners of data science in general and optimization modelling in particular. Magazines include: Towards Data Science, Quanta, and Analytics.
INFORMS is the leading international association for professionals in operations research, analytics, management science, economics, behavioral science, statistics, artificial intelligence, data science, applied mathematics, and other relevant fields.
INFORMS publishes a range of journals, magazines, and other material. Much of the content is restricted to INFORMS members, though some is freely available, including:
- ORMS Today. Shares the latest research and best practices in operations research, analytics and the management sciences.
- Analytics Magazine. Publishes a variety of articles about data science, artificial intelligence, and business analytics.
- Analytics Collections. A collection of industry-focused innovations and applications in advanced analytics and operations research.
- Management Science. A scholarly journal that publishes scientific research on the theory and practice of management.

The Open Journal of Mathematical Optimization (OJMO) is a free electronic journal of computer science and mathematics.
OJMO publishes original and high-quality articles dealing with every aspect of mathematical optimization, ranging from numerical and computational aspects to the theoretical questions related to mathematical optimization problems. The topics covered are classified into four areas:
- Continuous optimization.
- Discrete optimization.
- Optimization under uncertainty.
- Computational aspects and applications.
The journal is organized into annual volumes, though articles are published continually.

Optimization Online is a repository of Eprints about optimization and related topics. It facilitates quick dissemination of new research of interest to the optimization community. This service is free.
The articles tend to be technical, presenting recent developments in optimization theory, though there are also some articles that focus on applications of optimization modelling.
Optimization Online publishes several hundred articles each year.

Towards Data Science is a website where independent authors can publish their work, share their knowledge and expertise, and engage a wide audience on Medium.
Data science topics are varied, including:
- Optimization modelling.
- Natural language processing.
- Artificial intelligence.
Many articles include program code, allowing you to replicate the article examples.
