Title: Gestão da cadeia de suprimentos: análise dos artigos publicados em alguns periódicos acadêmicos entre os anos de 2004 e 2006. (Supply chain management: analysis of papers published on some journals between 2004 and 2006).

Abstract: In recent years, supply chain management has received greater attention, hence leading researchers to develop many papers on this topic. Due to its recent development, this organizational phenomenon is complex and has many variables, making the process of choosing a research topic also complex for researchers and students. Thus, this paper aims to provide an analysis of the major topics studied in over 173 papers published about supply chain management in the most important international production and operation management journals between 2004 and 2006. The results show that the major topics are coordination, information sharing between companies, production decisions, and supply chain design and performance. Many topics should also be the focus of future studies until the supply chain management becomes a discipline.
