The authors conduct a citation analysis of the Journal of Supply Chain Management over its first 40 years of publication, with the objectives of better understanding the sources that supply management scholars have drawn upon to generate research appearing in the Journal. Social network analysis is introduced and used to better understand how research that has been published in the Journal has been diffused across universities, and to identify university thought leaders. The authors provide future research directions based on additional, potential applications of social network analysis. May 2007, by the Institute for Supply Management, Inc.™.
