So the Journal of Supply Chain Management didn’t have to wait one more year after all :-) It’s impact factor has now been announced to be an astonishing 5.853, which puts it second(!) in the category of management journals (for the case you wonder, the Academy of Management Review is first). Congrats to the editors Craig Carter & Lisa Ellram and their team!
Here’s a quote from their happy e-mail:
