Emerging Discourse Incubator: Research at the Intersection of Supply Chain Management and Public Policy and Government Regulation

Editor in Chief, Brian Fugate introduces our second Emerging Discourse Incubator. The topic for JSCM's second emerging discourse incubator (EDI) is research that focuses on the intersection of supply chain management (SCM) and public policy and government regulation (PPGR). PPGR encompasses the laws, regulations, and government and regulatory agencies’ actions. The aim is to incubate a discourse with major schools of thought in political economy that have been largely unexplored in our discipline.

While submissions are open until 2019 we are currently processing our first accepted papers. Keep an eye on our social media and website for interviews featuring our EDI2 Authors!

 “Implementing Government Policy Through Public Procurement” Harland, C., Telgen, J., Callender, G., Grimm, R., and Patrucco, A.

“Competition Policy and Antitrust Law: Implications of Developments in Supply Chain” Gundlach, G., Frankel, R., and Krotz, R.

“Understanding the Downstream Healthcare Supply Chain: Unpacking Regulatory and Industry Characteristics” Dobrzykowski, D.
