Main Article Content
The 2022 special issue of the Industrial and Systems Engineering Review highlights top papers from the 2022 Annual General Donald R. Keith memorial capstone conference held at the United States Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY on the 28th of April. The conference fully returned to an in-person event while also offering opportunities for judges and observers to remotely participate. Following a careful review of fifty-three conference proceedings approved papers, thirteen were selected for publication in this journal. Each of the thirteen papers incorporated features of systems or industrial engineering and presented thoughtful and reflective analysis on each topic and represent nine of ten tracks following peer review and external judging of the research.
Thank you to all the academic institutional support, project sponsors, supporting faculty, and certainly to the 2022 undergraduate scholars and authors who provided significant contributions through applied research for the advancement of their fields of study!

The copyediting stage is intended to improve the flow, clarity, grammar, wording, and formatting of the article. It represents the last chance for the author to make any substantial changes to the text because the next stage is restricted to typos and formatting corrections. The file to be copyedited is in Word or .rtf format and therefore can easily be edited as a word processing document. The set of instructions displayed here proposes two approaches to copyediting. One is based on Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature and requires that the copy editor, editor, and author have access to this program. A second system, which is software independent, has been borrowed, with permission, from the Harvard Educational Review. The journal editor is in a position to modify these instructions, so suggestions can be made to improve the process for this journal.
