Affiliation of authors in transportation and logistics academic journals: A reevaluation
The authors update prior studies that evaluated the publication output of faculty members in refereed logistics, supply chain management, and transportation journals to identify current trends and changes. In addition a new weighted average metric is used to allocate credit to universities for co-authored articles. The rankings among the top-tier schools show comparable changes to prior periods in terms of the number of new entrants to the top twenty-five ranked universities. However, for the first time, non-North American universities have entered the top five rankings, indicating the increased global interest in and importance of logistics and supply chain management publications.
