Guest Track: International Journal of Retail and Distribution Management


The International Journal of Retail & Distribution Management (IJRDM) focuses on issues of strategic significance in retailing and distribution worldwide and provides a forum for researchers in academia, business, consultancy and management.

Professor Neil Towers will be hosting a special issue track for the International Journal of Retail and Distribution Management.

The competitive retail sector is under pressure to provide efficient services to hold its share of the market. As consumers demand higher levels of service and supply, they are simultaneously wooed by other alternatives like mail order and out of-town-shopping. The International Journal of Retail & Distribution Management provides a link between production and consumer, and by understanding their relationship it allows retail personnel to study operations practice in other organizations, and to compare methodologies.

The journal editor will be selecting the best papers from each stream, as appropriate, for inclusion in the track and potential inclusion within the journal.
