SF State's Decision Sciences department has been recognized in the November-December 2009 issue of Interfaces (Vol. 39, No. 6).

The article ranked universities’ contributions to the INFORMS practice literature from 2002-2008 based on two metrics: one measures visibility (the number of times a university is listed as the primary academic affiliation in the INFORMS practice literature), and the second measures yield (the equivalent number of INFORMS practice papers attributable to each university based on author primary academic affiliation).
