SCM Best Paper Award Winners 2012 (1/2)

I have attended the CSCMP’s Supply Chain Management Educators’ Conference (SCMEC) in Atlanta. The conference offers a unique opportunity to meet many researchers, whose faces are obscured behind references for the rest of the year. As last year in Philadelphia, several SCM journal award winners were announced: The best papers published in the International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management and the International Journal of Logistics Management are “Supply Chain 2.0”: Managing supply chains in the era of turbulence by Christopher and Holweg, and An institutional theoretic perspective on forces driving adoption of lean production globally: China vis-à-vis the USA by Hofer and her three co-authors, respectively. The Bernard J. LaLonde Best Paper Award (best paper published in the Journal of Business Logistics) goes to Top-down versus bottom-up demand forecasts: The value of shared point-of-sale data in the retail supply chain by Williams and Waller. Enjoy reading these outstanding articles! (part 2/2)
