Welcome to the online submission and editorial system for Uncertain Supply Chain Management

Uncertain Suply Chain Management Supply chain management (SCM) plays an essential role in managing the movement of raw materials into an organization, certain issues of the internal processing of materials into finished goods, and the movement of finished products out of the organization for end-consumer delivery. The goal of SCM is to improve trust and collaboration among supply chain partners and to improve inventory visibility.

The primary aim of this publishing company is to perform fast and reliable process for contributors. Once a paper is accepted, our staffs work hard to provide online version of the papers as quickly as possible. All papers are assigned valid DOI number once they appear online just to make sure that the other people researchers cite them while no volume and numbers are still assigned to the papers. We believe this could help the existing knowledge grow faster; however, the actual publication of a paper with volume and number will not exceed more than 4 months.
