The scope of supply chain management research

New, Steve (1997) The scope of supply chain management research. Supply Chain Management: An International Journal, 2 (1). pp. 15-22.


Advocates an expanded scope for supply chain management research which accounts for the social function and the political and economic implications of supply chain developments. Argues that the research agenda must not be driven by the notion of efficiency alone, but should also be developed around the concept of the just supply chain. Provides a framework which sets out the range of issues which may contribute to this approach. Believes that the objectives and ideological assumptions of research need to be open to challenge and debate.
