Due to the rapid advances in solution techniques in many areas of Operations Research, interesting projects can arise from applying up to date solution techniques to past papers, even very recent papers.

At an Honours level this may involve implementing a slightly modified solution technique.  At a PhD level this would involve a significantly modified technique, with key theoretical improvements, producing substantially better results.

Potential sources of interesting papers include the following journals:

Operations Research
Transportation Science
European Journal of Operations Research 
Journal of the Operational Research Society
Journal of Scheduling
Networks
Annals of Operations Research
