Report 2018


Dear Colleagues,


We would like to present to you a brief evaluation of our results of 2018 and the next challenges and opportunities for Brazilian Journal of Operations & Production Management (BJO&PM - ISSN 2237-8960).

BJO&PM is focused on applied research covering all aspects of operations and production management and obtained in 2018 an important achievement: the indexation in Emerging Sources Citation Index, from Clarivate Analytics.

In 2018, BJO&PM published 4 Issues, totaling 59 articles. A total of 110 articles were submitted in the year. In September, we published a Thematic Issue called “Emerging Topics in Production Engineering: Creative Economics”, with professor Clarisse Stephan (Fluminense Federal University – UFF) as our Guest Editor.

Two important indexations were requested in 2018: SCOPUS and DOAJ. We expect to receive a response in 2019 for both.

For 2019, we will publish two Thematic Issues, in June and September, called “Innovation, Technology Management and Industry 4.0” (Guest Editor – professor Iara Tammela - Fluminense Federal University – UFF) and “Opportunities & Challenges for Operations Management” (Guest Editor – professor Adriana Leiras - Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro – PUC-Rio), respectively.


We count on your partnership in 2019. Happy New Year!


Kind Regards,

Osvaldo L. G Quelhas
