IJSCIM provides a unique focus by explicitly linking supply chains with inventory management. Inventory, transport, location of production and storage spaces significantly influence supply chain performance. Modifications of inventory policies can lead to a dramatic alteration of supply chain efficiency and responsiveness. Increasing supply chain inventories will improve customer service and revenue but also increase supply chain cost. Therefore, key areas to be explored include the correct sizing of inventory, links with supply chain efficiency and impact on logistics services.


 Topics covered include

  • Inventory optimisation
  • Inventory management models (analytic and simulated)
  • Retail inventory management
  • Analytic or simulated models for supply chain design
  • Supply chain optimisation
  • Facility location
  • Supply chain performance measurement
  • Supply chain management
  • Supply network management
  • Distribution management
  • Logistics management
  • Reverse logistics and closed-loop supply chains
  • Cold supply chain design and optimisation
  • Food supply chain design and optimisation
  • Interdependencies between inventory management and supply chain design

More on this journal...

IJSCIM aims to provide a forum for research devoted to topics that relate inventory management to supply chain management. Its objective is to become a leading outlet for relevant research in the fields of inventory and supply chain management. Contributions are expected to increase the available knowledge in those areas, with a particular emphasis toward the improvement of all aspects of inventory management and supply chain efficiency, with an international dimension.


The targeted audience includes academics, researchers and professionals such as inventory managers, supply chain managers, purchasing managers, logistics managers and operations managers.


IJSCIM will primarily publish original research articles, review articles and application papers, the latter intended as scientific papers where the authors propose industrial applications of theoretical models related to the topics of inventory and supply chain management. Book reviews and special issues devoted to related topics will occasionally be published.
