The aim of this paper is to review the literature in the field of supplier selection under supply chain risk management. Collected papers from 2003 to 2014 are analyzed and classified, first, according to the characteristics of the problem they deal with, secondly, according to the approach they propose, and thirdly, according to the techniques they use. The papers have been grouped into five categories: the first group relates to quantitative approaches to supplier selection, the second concerns qualitative approaches, the third consists of hybrid approaches that blend two or more different approaches together, the fourth relates to simulation approaches and the last group to artificial intelligence. The techniques used in each category are outlined. The different approaches and their associated techniques are analyzed and some recommendations are made on improving their efficiency and performance. This paper is thus a systematic scope review of journal articles and conference papers issued during this period. It brings together a collection of 124 papers on the topic of supplier selection under supply chain risk management.
