The purpose of this paper is to bring awareness to the logistics and supply chain management (L/SCM) community’s broken review process.


The authors diagnose some of the core problems that limit the L/SCM community from disseminating high-quality research in a timely manner.


Problems attributable to authors, reviewers, and editors are described, and recommendations for each review process participant are provided.


This editorial provides a call for further discussion and action in terms of how the community can improve the contribution to knowledge and society.



The authors thank Dr Dee Fawcett for the assistance with creating the illustration.
