Supply Chain Management pushes the boundaries of supply chain research and practice. Contributions must extend supply chain knowledge beyond a dyadic perspective and consider challenges posed by issues such as globalisation and disruption.

Aims and scope

Research findings must demonstrate international relevance and global impact to both theory and practice.  Research papers and case studies submitted to Supply Chain Management (SCM) will only be considered if they contribute to extending supply chain knowledge beyond a dyadic perspective. 

The journal seeks empirical research only and will not consider modelling or simulation submissions. The challenges posed by globalisation and rapidly changing technology trends directly affects supply chain design and management. Contemporary supply chain practices have to be responsive, proactive, integrated and information driven when managing the components of the supply chain.  

Taking the foregoing in account the following areas of supply chain research will be considered, but not limited to:

  • Data Analytics
  • Demand forecasting
  • E-supply chains
  • Innovation 
  • Integration and collaboration
  • Lean and Agile 
  • Logistics Management
  • Performance drivers and measurement
  • Procurement
  • Reverse and closed loop supply chains
  • Risk Management
  • Services
  • Supply chain efficiency and effectiveness
  • Supply chain network design
  • Sustainability
  • Value chain strategies
