I'm working on a paper for the first time and I would like to know which papers are recommended to study and analyze for their excellent writing and structure, and which authors in OR are recognized as strong writers.
Many journals offer best paper awards. For example check out the European Journal of Operations Research best paper awards for some really good papers.
The Franz Edelman award run by informs generates a lot of interesting papers. They award a prize and also declare finalists based on impactful OR projects. Participants submit a paper as part of the process.
