Reviews and Testimonials

In today's research environment, business issues such as supply chain management cannot be cleanly separated from IT issues. Recent advances in information systems such as service-oriented architecture and model driven development create value propositions in supply chain management that are tightly coupled with information systems theory. To be successful, companies that specialize in one of these two areas must partner with other companies that specialize in the other area. This journal offers an opportunity for researchers to discuss key issues that cross both areas. Companies should read this journal carefully.

– Steve Buckley, IBM TJ Watson Research Center, USA

Since information systems play such an important role in supply chain management (SCM), I think this journal is an excellent addition to the current collection of academic journals in the SCM area.

– Paul D. Larson, University of Manitoba, Canada

Information systems and supply chain management are two issues with great importance for efficient operations management in industries and also in the public sector. The IJISSCM journal will present recent theoretical and applied research on information systems and supply chain management.

– Svein Bråthen, Molde University College/Molde Research Institute, Norway

These days it is hard to think of supply chain management without information systems. This journal addresses an important and much-awaited niche that will be of tremendous use to academicians and practitioners.

– Indranil Bose, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

International Journal of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management (IJISSCM) focus on prominent issues on logistics, operations, and information technology. The journal fills a gap and provides a clear synergy between the two closely related yet distinctive areas. I am excited about its prospectus and looking forward to it becoming the leading journal in this important field.

– Dan Zhu, Associate Professor of Management Information Systems, Iowa State University, USA
