Journals and industry publications are important in communication among production and operations‐management academics and practitioners. There have been calls for more cross‐disciplinary research and greater emphasis on applied benefit. Describes an attempt to identify relevant periodicals, together with their publication characteristics and readership exposure indices. The authors conclude that even if research agendas are changed to emphasize practitioner‐relevant research, that is of little benefit if the readership of academic journals remains low. It is suggested that other outlets, particularly those with high readership exposure, should be regarded as legitimate publication outlets for such research.
