    Since January 2020, the fast spread of the Corona Virus has been created undefinable disruptions in supply chains worldwide (Choi et al. 2020). WHO (2020) highlights that it is a big challenge to keep smooth supplies of food and medical instruments, including masks and medicine. Importantly, COVID-19 is revealing deep interconnections between pandemics supply chain management in unforeseen ways. Examples of negative outcomes include, among many others, the difficulty of ramping medical product manufacturing capacity up, quick response to the crisis, hoarding of foodstuffs triggering bullwhip effects, as well as the fragility of supply chains contributing to overall economic chaos being faced by the world (Ivanov and Dolgui, 2020).

    This Thematic Issue invites researchers from the fields of supply chain management, operations management, strategic management, logistics engineering, transport management, and industrial management to submit their manuscripts related to these themes and presenting applied research. Relevant contributions (empirical/theoretical development/case studies/state-of-the-art reviews/conceptual papers) are welcome.

  • Change for continuous flow

    2020-02-12

    Dear readers,

    It is a pleasure to inform you that, in 2020, the Brazilian Journal of Operations & Production Management will publish its articles in a continuous flow.

    The aim of this change is to increase the agility to disseminate the research findings and enable articles to be exposed for a longer time, increasing citation opportunities.

    The journal will continue to publish 4 issues per year. However, the articles will be made available on the website as soon as their production process ends. They will be allocated into the issues when published online.

    In this sense, we would like to highlight our commitment with the quality and continuity of BJO&PM.  

     

    Kind regards,

    Osvaldo L. G. Quelhas, Editor-in-chief, BJO&PM
