Logistics Research is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the SpringerOpen brand. The Journal features fundamental and applied research in the fields of logistics and supply chain management from an interdisciplinary perspective spanning from logistics management to logistics engineering. The journal presents analytical, conceptual, empirical and/or experimental work that advances the development of logistics theory and innovative logistics practices as well as the integration of the various associated disciplines such as management and social sciences, economics, behavioral sciences, operations research, informatics, and other relevant engineering sciences.

The editorial area “Management and Social Science” understands logistics from a single organization or a network point of view. Logistics is examined from a functional and/or an institutional perspective. The editorial area considers research that addresses relevant problems that are based on rigorous methodological ground, including empirical as well as conceptual papers. Research designs may include surveys, case studies, action research or experimental designs. Conceptual papers provide forward thinking solutions for practical problems in logistics or present innovative methodological suggestions for improving practical decision making in logistics.

The editorial area “Quantitative Methods and Decision Support Systems” seeks innovative quantitative contributions in modeling and solving real world logistics and supply chain management problems including freight and public transportation, intermodal transportation, warehousing and inventory management, performance measurement in logistics and at the interfaces of logistics to other disciplines as finance, manufacturing, marketing, and procurement. All kinds of Operations Research methods, in particular exact and heuristic algorithms and simulation to support decision making in logistics are welcome.
