SCM:IJ is targeted at academics and practitioners in both public and private sector organisations working on all aspects of vertical coordination and process integration. The journal promotes the exchange of knowledge, experience and new ideas between researchers and practitioners and encoourages a multi-disciplinary and cross-functional approach to the resolution of problems and the exploitation of opportunities within supply chains that extend beyond the buyer-supply interface.
Within SCM, supply chain management is viewed as a business philosophy that covers all aspects of business activity, the main emphasis being on vertical coordination to achieve sustainable competitive advantage. Thus, the scope of this journal is wide ranging and includes all aspects of the buy, make, move, sell and return processes (e.g. strategic sourcing and supplier development, purchasing, manufacturing and operations management, logistics and inventory management, customer relationship management and order fulfillment, new product development and product design). Contributions are encouraged from diverse disciplines (e.g. economics, marketing, finance, operations management, logistics, organisational behaviour, retailing, process engineering, geography, management science, information technology and ethics) but SCM is particularly interested in publishing results from multi-disciplinary research and cross-functional projects that involve multiple stakeholders.
Supply chain management is viewed as a business philosophy, which covers all aspects of business activity, the main emphasis being on working together with customers and suppliers to achieve competitive advantage. Thus, the scope of this journal is wide ranging and includes all aspects of the delivery process (procurement, manufacturing, logistics, inventory management, account management, marketing and new product development) and theoretical contributions from the social sciences (operations management, corporate strategy, organizational behaviour, new institutional economics, and public policy) in relation to developed and developing countries world-wide.
The journal is broad based, but with a strategic focus, covering aspects of marketing, logistics and information technology, economics, management and organizational behaviour in relation to the operation of supply chains in all sectors. The journal aims to encourage the development and implementation of supply chain systems which achieve higher levels of service and substantial savings in costs.
With the globalization of business comes increased cross-border activity and new investment in overseas economies, both developed and developing. Whilst this brings new opportunities, both for the companies investing and the economies in which they invest, it also brings additional costs, particularly in terms of risk management and the logistics of multiple sourcing for multi-product enterprises. The journal will focus on these and associated issues to bring the research focus of academics closer to the practical problems facing commercial managers in a rapidly changing business environment.
This journal is unique and is the only journal which seeks to promote a dialogue between academics and business practitioners on an international scale in the area of supply chain management. The journal will keep the business community aware of new theoretical initiatives, while creating a forum for academics to present ideas.
The journal provides an invaluable source for practitioners and academics involved with:
