How to publish in this journal


Logistics Research is the international medium for the publication of academic research in the field of logistics from an interdisciplinary perspective spanning from logistics management to logistics engineering. It publishes original logistics research of high quality, which will have a significant impact on logistics theory and practice. Logistics Research solicits, evaluates and publishes through a rigorous double-blind peer review process empirical and conceptual work advancing the development of logistics theory and innovative logistics practices as well as the integration of the various associated disciplines such as management and social sciences, economics, behavioral sciences, operations research, informatics, and other relevant engineering sciences. Special focus is placed on the dissemination of such work within the international community of researchers, academics, and practitioners interested in and dealing with logistics. This is achieved through a combination of high standards in content and simultaneous effort to assure applicability, accessibility and readability beyond the research community. These goals are achieved through an Editorial Review Board, which represents the various contributing scientific disciplines to logistics. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
