This article updates an ongoing study of author affiliation and institutional productivity based on articles published in peer-reviewed logistics, supply chain management, and transportation journals. Additionally, the authors consider the current status and future trends of journals in electronic format. Our findings show an increasing percentage of contributions by academic as opposed to nonacademic authors. We also find reasonable stability in the publication output of the top ten ranked institutions. However, several new universities, including non-North American schools, have entered the top twenty-five ranked institutions.
