Journal of Business Logistics 2.0
There is probably no “A+ journal” in the field of logistics. However, a series of changes can be announced for the CSCMP‘s Journal of Business Logistics (JBL) that might move it a bit closer to this top grade. Firstly, the JBL is now listed in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science. This is an important move, because many U.S. universities require journals to be listed there, in order to count them on the tenure track. Secondly, the journal is now published by Wiley-Blackwell. It can be expected that the publisher’s advanced submission system will accelerate the publication process. Thirdly, the Editorial Review Board has grown to incorporate additional authors. This allows the variety of specialty areas to grow. The JBL is now edited by Matthew Waller and Stanley Fawcett. They succeed James R. Stock, who successfully edited the journal between 2004 and 2010.
