Special Issue on

Supply chain security

Deadline: 31 December 2013

In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on security in supply chains from practitioners and researchers alike. In fact, managing security in the supply chain has become a critical component of the broader area of supply chain risk management. Security risks span the entire supply chain and manifest themselves in a variety of ways. Supply chain security issues can be costly and complex and can damage not only firm reputation but also an entire product category. This has led to a growing recognition of the importance of understanding both the supply chain threats towards supply chains and how to either prevent them from occurring or deal with them effectively once they happen. The aim of this special issue is, therefore, to promote new insights into areas of threats and security within supply chains in support of the preparation and response to such disasters and emergencies.

This call for papers encourages the development of empirically grounded and methodologically rigorous articles in the area of supply chain security. Cross disciplinary papers using multiple methodologies are especially encouraged as are papers with an international focus. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

.Rigorous case studies on security issues, mitigation and resilience

.Security driven supply chain innovation

.Supply chain security response and mitigation

.Linking security management practices and firm performance

.Effects of security disruptions on supply chain integration

.Measuring the value of trust related to supply chain security

.Security-related selection criteria of logistics service providers

.Transportation security and cargo crimes

.Liability from supply chain security failures

.Empirically based cost-benefit analysis of security initiatives

.Demand driven security disruptions.

Manuscripts should be prepared per the normal guidelines for International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management and may be submitted through the journal's online system.
