Part of the EURO Advanced Tutorials on Operational Research book series (EUROATOR)


In this chapter, we take a qualitative and quantitative approach to reviewing conceptual research on—as well as analytical models and empirical assessments of—the interactions between operations and finance. First, we take a quantitative approach to bibliometric analysis (Tang and Musa in Int J Prod Econ 133:25–34, 2011; Fahimnia et al. in Eur J Oper Res 247:1–15, 2015). In particular, we conduct citation and PageRank analyses to identify both frequently cited and high-impact papers. Moreover, we analyze a data set of 258 peer-reviewed journal articles (excluding conference papers) on the OFI (i.e., operations–finance interface) from 1958 to 2016. In this context, we summarize the conceptual, analytical, and empirical research of operations-finance interface. In addition, we identify eight research streams in the paper citation network and sketch the landscape of operations–finance interactions based on leading articles and recent advances in each stream. Thus we statistically characterize the maturity and potential of these streams of research before proposing directions and approaches for future explorations in this field.
