The Journal of Business Logistics (JBL), published by the Council of Supply Chain Management
Professionals (CSCMP), is recognized as one of the world’s leading academic supply chain journals.
But sometimes it may be hard for practitioners to see how the research presented in its pages applies to what they do on a day-to-day basis.

To help bridge that gap, CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly challenges the authors of selected JBL articles to explain the real-world implications of their academic work.

THE ARTICLE
"Supplier Role Conflict: An Investigation of Its Relational Implications and Impact on Supplier Accommodation," by Monique L. Ueltschy Murfield of Miami University, Terry L. Esper at the University of Arkansas, Wendy L. Tate of the University of Tennessee, and Kenneth J. Petersen of Boise State University.

This article received CSCMP’s Bernard J. La Londe Best Paper Award for the most valuable paper published in the Journal of Business Logistics (JBL) in 2017.
