Abstract: Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to provide rankings of quality
of peer reviewed periodicals for faculty research use, rankings of usefuless of
both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed periodicals for teaching and
outreach purposes, and rankings of usefulness of search engines for finding
Design/methodology/approach - An online survey was conducted during the
Autumn Semester of 2006.82 periodicals were identified as relevant to the
Supply Chain Management field. Respondents were asked to rank their top used
Findings - A total of 143 surveys were completed. Journal of Business Logistics,
Harvard Business Review, and International Journal of Physical Distribution and
Logistics Management were the top three ranked journals in the composite
index. EBSCO Business Source Premier, ProQuest, and Google Scholar were the
top three search engines used to find logistics and SCM articles.
Research limitations/implications - A clear global consensus is forming on the
top journals for SCM. However, the emergence of Operations
Management/Operations Research Journals into the rankings is an important
trend. There was also the absence of previously ranked journals as the field
evolved from transportation and distribution to logistics to SCM.
Originality/value - This paper is the largest survey completed to date in the
field and substantially updates previous surveys. All academics who are active
in SCM will find value in this paper.
