Haslam’s supply chain program 4th globally in publications

December 7, 2015

The Haslam College of Business’ supply chain program was ranked fourth in the world for publications in leading, empirically focused supply chain journals by the SCM Journal List.

Steve Mangum, dean and Stokely Foundation Leadership Chair of the Haslam College of Business, said the rankings reflect the college’s commitment to impactful research.

“We strive to improve the world of business and to inspire better practices across the globe,” Mangum said. “Our supply chain program is a prime example of how academic experts can work with, learn from and inspire innovations to industry professionals.”

Haslam shares the top five tier with Michigan State University, Arizona State University, The Ohio State University and University of Arkansas (listed by rank, with Arkansas coming in fifth). This global ranking is based on publications in empirically focused journals.

The SCM Journal List identifies eight journals that publish research across a broad spectrum of supply chain areas in both the analytical and empirical arenas. Each year’s ranking is based on the research published in these journals during the prior five years.

“At long last we have a ranking that captures our field’s research output with reasonable objectivity,” said Chad Autry, William J. Taylor Professor of Supply Chain Management at Haslam and editor in chief of the Journal of Supply Chain Management.

The SCM Journal List has been endorsed by faculty from 200 of the most prestigious business schools worldwide.
