“Recent Trends of Supply Chain Management (SCM)”
Dr. Habib would represents theory and evolution of Supply Chain Management as well as highlights chronological prospective of SCM in terms of time frame in different areas of manufacturing and service industries. The exploration of SCM trends in Engineering and Business areas is enhancing in the course of time.
The objective of SCM is to incorporate activities across and within organizations for providing the customer/stakeholders value. Supply Chain Management (SCM) has been widely researched in numerous application domains during the last decade. Despite the popularity of SCM research and applications, considerable confusion remains as to its meaning. There are several attempts made by researchers and practitioners to appropriately define SCM. Amidst fierce competition in all industries, SCM has gradually been embraced as a proven managerial approach to achieving sustainable profits and growth.
Finally, Dr. Habib would demonstrate Educational Supply Chain Management, as the application of SCM in the service industry, which would unlock other applications of SCM in different arenas whatever in Engineering and Business Administration. Integrated Tertiary Educational Supply Chain Management (ITESCM) model would be verified through Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Techniques that would describe in his lecture.
“Tips and Techniques to Publish International Research Publications”
Prof. Dr. Md. Mamun Habib
Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Supply Chain Management (IJSCM), UK
Publishing in international journals is important to the careers of scholars in most educational institutions, yet many experience frustration upon submitting their research papers. Scholars receive critical comments from reviewers on work which they believe to be close to perfection, and in the majority of cases, submitted papers are rejected by top international journals. This high degree of frustration and rejection is caused by multiple sources including the quality of the research itself, the quality of the written report of the research, mismatches between the paper and journal to which it is submitted, management problems at some journals resulting in slow reviews, and poor communications among authors, reviewers, and editors.
This workshop will discuss the reviewing and publishing process, using International Journal of Supply Chain Management (IJSCM), IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management as examples. First, the overall process of submission and review will be described. Next, the perspectives of the various parties involved in the review process: Authors, Editors-in-Chief, Department Editors, Editorial Assistants, Editorial Review Board members, and Ad Hoc Reviewers will be reviewed. Finally, suggestions will be offered to authors as to how to choose journals for particular papers, how to prepare a manuscript for submission, how to prepare a useful transmittal letter to the Editor-in-Chief, how to respond to reviewer comments, how to prepare a revised manuscript, and what to do with a rejected manuscript. The workshop should help scholars to reflect on their own experiences as researchers, authors, reviewers, and editors.
The workshop will conclude with reflections on the role of publishing in the academic promotion process and in academic careers. It will be interactive and tailored to the interests of those attending, so bring your questions and comments!
