    Call for Proposals

    Annual Review Issue: Past Accomplishments and Future Challenges within Supply Chain Management Research

    Modeled after the highly successful review issues published by the Journal of Management, the goal of this special issue is to provide integrative reviews of supply chain management (SCM) research and to guide its future development. My co-guest editor Chris Craighead and I invite authors to submit a proposal (not a full paper) that outlines a plan for creating a high-impact scholarly review of an important research stream. In this context, the term 'research stream' refers to a body of work (a) that is focused on a specific topic; or (b) that applies a particular theory across different topics. Quantitative reviews such as meta-analyses are outside the scope of the special issue, as are bibliometric studies and reviews of the application of research methods.

    Relying on proposals (rather than full submissions) allows authors to have their ideas evaluated after a relatively small upfront invest of time and energy.

    Proposals may be submitted from August 1, 2022 to September 1, 2022 via the Journal of Business Logistics' online submission portal at
