With apologies to the novelist Thomas Wolfe, it seems you can go home again—if you're talking about the Journal of Business Logistics, that is. The influential journal, which is published by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), was founded at The Ohio State University (OSU) in 1978 by the legendary Dr. Bernard J. (Bud) La Londe Jr. However, since that time, no OSU professor has held a top editor's position at the journal.
That will change in another year or so, when OSU will "take the ball back," so to speak. Walter Zinn, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Marketing and Logistics, and Thomas J. Goldsby, Ph.D., professor of logistics, both in OSU's Fisher College of Business, have been named editors of the publication. Their five-year terms will begin in 2016.
