Aims and Scope

International Journal of Supply and Operations Management (IJSOM) is a scholarly peer-reviewed international scientific journal and is committed to publishing scholarly empirical and theoretical research articles that have a high impact on the engineering & management field as a whole. All aspects of the subject in relation to Logistics, Supply and Operations Management are covered. The ultimate objective of the journal is to disseminate knowledge for improving industrial practice and to strengthen the theoretical base necessary for supporting sound decision making.

IJSOM contains the following types of papers:

  • Theory and Methodology Papers, presenting original research results contributing to the methodology and to its theoretical foundations
  • Innovative Applications, describing novel ways to solve real problems
  • Review Papers, explaining to the general audience the developments in a Supply and Operations Management topic over the recent years
  • Short Communications, including comments on papers previously published
