Journal of Supply Chain Management, Logistics and Procurement

Inaugural issue out now

Journal of Supply Chain Management, Logistics and Procurement is the major new peer-reviewed journal publishing in-depth articles and case studies on new thinking, innovative practices and emerging issues in how to deliver cost effective, efficient, resilient and adaptable supply chain management, logistics and procurement. It examines key practical issues from a business, risk and operational perspective in a high quality format which seeks to fill the gap between trade magazines and purely academic journals.

Its detailed articles and case studies – all of which are peer-reviewed by an Editorial Board of leading supply chain management, logistics and procurement experts – provide in-depth, actionable advice and ‘lessons learned’ written by and for fellow professionals. Each issue demonstrates how supply chain management, logistics and procurement programmes are specified, designed, implemented and managed to support organisational goals in an array of industries around the world, including how real world challenges and disruptions have been managed in practice.
