The authors update prior studies that evaluated the publication output of faculty members in refereed logistics, supply chain management, and transportation journals to identify current trends and changes. In addition a new weighted average metric is used to allocate credit to universities for co-authored articles. The rankings among the top-tier schools show comparable changes to prior periods in terms of the number of new entrants to the top twenty-five ranked universities. However, for the first time, non-North American universities have entered the top five rankings, indicating the increased global interest in and importance of logistics and supply chain management publications.
