Assessing logistics and transportation journals: Alternative perspectives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

22 Scopus citations


In the past, the fields of logistics and transportation have relied on data from perceptual surveys to evaluate the quality of their academic journals. Like any single research methodology, surveys of experts suffer from certain methodological weaknesses. This article considers the strengths and weaknesses of various subjective and objective measures of journal quality, then provides a statistical comparison of these measures, using the twenty-two journals examined in the Fawcett, Vellenga, and Truit study. Suggestions of how to overcome some of the potential limitations of these methods are provided to help guide future research in this area. Implications for journal editors and members of editorial review boards are also discussed.
