Vol. 10 No. 2 (2017): July - December

Dear readers,

This issue of Journal of Operations and Supply Chain Management (JOSCM) is my first one as the Editor-in-chief.  I am glad to succeed the brilliant work done by my colleague Juliana Bonomi Santos and her editorial team in the last two years. Juliana created the call for papers on Supply Chain and Operations Strategies for Problem-Solving in Latin American Countries that I am proudly present the Special Issue in this edition. This relevant topic is edited by Cristiane Biazzin (FGV EAESP, Brazil), Elyn L. Solano-Charris (Escuela Internacional de Ciencias Económicas y Administrativas – EICEA, Colombia), and Jairo Alberto Jarrín Quintero (Escuela Internacional de Ciencias Económicas y Administrativas – EICEA, Colombia). In the introduction of the Special Issue, our Guest Editors describe the current challenges for Operations in Latin American and present the contributions selected for this debate.   

Additionally to the six papers of the Special Issue, JOSCM also presents two papers on sustainability and global operations. In the first paper, Francisco Sperotto Flores, Iuri Gavronski, Vinicius Nardi, and Roselei Haag use the triple bottom line perspective to analyze how the international operations literature integrates economic, social, and environmental issues. Yuri da Cunha Ferreira, Cristiano Morini, and Luis Antonio de Santa-Eulalia, in the second paper, assess the impact of trade facilitation measures on import flows through an experimental study in the largest cargo airport in South America.

I hope you enjoy the reading.
