JBL in the News

During the JBL’s first year in the Thomson Reuters Web of ScienceSM, 2011, its impact rating was 3.905. This is a ranking of 9 out of 140 journals in the field of management.

Stephan M. Wagner’s supply chain risk management JBL submission was selected as Thomson Reuters New Hot Paper for May 2011.

CSCMP’s JBL was included in the Thomson Reuters Web of ScienceSM in 2010: “Our long-standing efforts to expand the visibility of the Journal of Business Logistics have been realized with this significant milestone. Being included in Web of ScienceSM not only makes our publication more visible to logistics and supply chain faculty wishing to publish, it also ensures that the JBL ‘counts’ as an acceptable resource at those colleges and universities that require publications be exclusively in Thomson Reuters-listed journals (formerly ISI-listed).” - Dr. James R. Stock, Editor 2004-2010,
