1 International Journal of Procurement

2 Scope of the Journal IJPM proposes and fosters discussions on the development of procurement resources, with emphasis on the implications that purchasing and supply management functions have on organisational productivity and competitiveness in the global market. The globalisation of market and operations, including outsourcing, lead to global purchasing and supplier development that are closely related to the success of a company. This perspective indicates the importance of effective procurement and supply functions for organisational effectiveness and competitiveness. In addition, developments in information technology (IT) and information systems (IS) such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and radio frequency identification (RFID) have a significant impact on the procurement functions and supply management. Due emphasis will be given to research about the impact of IT/IS in the effective management of procurement and suppliers. IJPM is a double-blind refereed and authoritative reference dealing with procurement and supply management as well as emerging issues of interest to professionals and academics in the field. Subject coverage: Topics covered by IJPM include but are not limited to: Procurement and supply management strategies Procurement and supply systems Supplier development Alignment of purchasing strategy with corporate strategy Global procurement and supply development Performance measures and metrics in procurement and supply management functions IT/IS such as ERP and RFID in procurement and supply management activities E-procurement Environmental issues and procurement Outsourcing Cost models for procurement Ethical standards in procurement activities Green supply management Purchasing Implementation of sustainable procurement Selling consortiums Reengineering procurement processes Inventory management Procurement challenges in public sector organisations and military establishments Demand management Benchmarking in procurement and supply management Procurement and project management Modelling and analysis of procurement and supply functions Supplier management Measuring and communicating the impact of procurement and supply management Human resource management in procurement function Procurement teams and organisation Agile procurement and supply systems Evaluating costs and benefits of procurement and supply functions Measuring supplier performance Corporate social responsibility in supply base selection and management Supplier relationship protocols Supply risk management Managing supplier innovation International Journal of Procurement visit
