Supply chains and business operations are the backbone for development and growth of organisations and nations. Today's uncertain, turbulent environments expose supply chains and business operations to risks/disruptions that can significantly damage organisations and economies. IJSCOR presents the latest research/developments in supply chain/operations resilience strategies, highlighting theoretical research with practical applications. Besides being a theoretical platform for the academic community, IJSCOR helps practitioners bridge the gap between supply chain and operations resilience theory and its effective deployment and application.


 Topics covered include

  • Resilient supply chain management, operational resilience in industrial systems
  • Reverse logistics, green supply, closed loop/knowledge-based supply chains, RFID
  • Vendor/supplier selection, supplier development, purchasing management
  • Disaster management
  • Supply chain performance/optimisation/risk/decision making/support systems
  • Responsive and reconfigurable supply chains and operations
  • Materials, equipment and maintenance management in uncertain environments
  • Global lean/agile supply chains and operations management
  • Internal operations and systems re-engineering, improvement, optimisation
  • E-commerce supply and operations management, aggregate planning, ERP, MRP, JIT
  • Resilient strategic thinking and implications, organisational resilience
  • Modelling, risk analysis and risk management
  • Education and training
  • Quality management (e.g. business excellence models, six sigma, TQM, SPC, etc.)
  • Empirical research and case studies

More on this journal...

IJSCOR aims to provide a platform for exchanging innovative ideas and sharing practical experiences in managing, improving and sustaining resilience strategies for supply chains and business operations. The global dimension is emphasised in developing effective strategies, tactics, operational policies and methods to improve the robustness of supply chain and business operations in order to make them less susceptible to external and systematic vulnerabilities.


IJSCOR provides a vehicle to help professionals, senior executives, academics, researchers, industry consultants, and policy makers working in the fields of supply chain and operations management to disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge and information and to learn from each other's work.


IJSCOR publishes original papers, review papers, case studies, empirical research, technical notes, and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in supply chain and operations management issues will occasionally be published. Supply chain and business operations improvement strategies, methods and techniques of both theoretical and practical nature are welcome. Articles that deal not only with the resilience aspect but also general aspects of supply chain and business operations issues in the service industry (e.g. IT, transportation, distribution, logistics, etc.), public services (e.g. healthcare, defence, etc.), manufacturing industry (e.g. automobile, food, aerospace, durable products, etc.), process industry (e.g. oil and gas, energy production, mining, etc.) and education are encouraged.
