About the Journal

IJSOM's objective is to publish cutting-edge, innovative research that has the potential to significantly advance both the theoretical and practical fields of Operations and Supply Chain Management. The magazine has developed a reputation for being a highly respected resource in a complicated and growing field of business management by drawing on the experiences of both industrial and service industry sectors, in both private and public contexts.

JPOM accepts a wide variety of empirically-based forms of inquiry when they exhibit generalized discoveries of considerable value to operations and supply chain management. JPOM does not categorically reject some empirical approaches, with the exception of parts that are entirely mathematical in nature. Regardless of the style of inquiry or methodologies employed, the critical considerations are suitable methodology, clarity in the manner in which the study was conducted, and rigor in the application of methodologies. Please keep in mind that any contribution should be expressly theoretical in nature. When suitable and beneficial for developing research insights, the journal welcomes the use of mixed techniques of inquiry.

It is critical that each submission to the journal has a strong emphasis on operations and supply chain management themes. While JPOM welcomes papers that incorporate theory from other disciplines (e.g., strategy, sociology, or psychology), the majority of the contribution must be focused on operations and supply chain management.

Articles in the IJSOM may comprise the following: Empirical research articles
Reviews of the literature, surveys, and critiques of published papers
Papers of expert opinion - these will always be led by eminent experts.
Occasional pure conceptual research - this is frequently a problem for academics, and the content must be on a par with other articles published in IJOPM in terms of rigor and possible impact. The Journal's coverage encompasses all facets of operations and supply chain management, including but not limited to the following topics: manufacturing and service industries, for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises.
