The founders and co-editors of the Journal, Professor Douglas M Lambert of The Ohio State University, USA and Martin G Christopher of Cranfield University in the UK, said, "We are pleased that the journal is to be published by Emerald. We believe that the strengths and global capabilities of the Emerald Group will enable the journal to develop further. The publishing expertise of Emerald combined with the existing reputation of the International Journal of Logistics Management represents an exciting opportunity for the future development of the journal."

Read by practising managers and researchers, teachers and students, The International Journal of Logistics Management provides a global forum for the exchange of new ideas and practices in the dynamic field of logistics management and the emerging area of supply chain management. Articles from authors in the academic and corporate world cover topics such as the managerial applications of theory and technique and the application of logistics to corporate strategy and the achievement of competitive advantage.

Cathy Mostyn, Business Development Director at Emerald, comments, "Our latest acquisition increases our stable of operations and production management titles. We constantly seek opportunities to increase our portfolio of management journals, and are delighted that The International Journal of Logistics Management is joining our growing collection of over 100 business and management titles."

The International Journal of Logistics Management will be published twice a year. Doug Lambert and Martin Christopher will continue in their roles of co-editors and their international reputations and standing will further strengthen Emerald’s outstanding position in academic publishing, in general and in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, in particular.
