This summer was marked by a series of successes for Professor Jeff Jia who has recently joined The York Management School.

Professor Jia successfully chaired and organised ‘The Circular Economy Summit’ together with University of Southampton, University of Sheffield and Shanghai University in Shanghai on July 15 and 16th. The conference/summit was attended by around 100 delegates from across the world including academics, policy makers and industrial partners.

He was also invited as a keynote speaker giving a talk on ’Frontier of Operations Management research’ at the ‘National management science annual conference’ in Kunming, China on 29th July.

Jeff's new textbook Strategic Operations Management will be published by Routledge in September, 2018: 

Brown, S., Bessant, J. and Jia, F. (2018). Strategic Operations Management. Routledge. 4th Ed.

Since July, Jeff has had 5 journal publications accepted or published at ABS 4 or 3 journals (JCP is an ABS 2 with an impact factor of 5.0):

Xu, X., Chen, X., Jia, F., Brown, S., Gong, Y., and Xu, Y. “Supply Chain Finance: A systematic literature review and bibliometric analysis”, accepted by International Journal of Production Economics

Jia, F., Gong, Y., and Brown, S. “Multi-tier sustainable supply chain management: The role of Supply chain leadership”, Accepted by International Journal of Production Economics

Ji, C. Jia, F. and Xu, X. (2018). “Agricultural co-operative sustainability: Evidence from four Chinese pig production co-operatives”, Journal of Cleaner Production 197, 1095-1107

Yang, Y., Jia, F. and Xu, Z. (2018). “Towards an integrated conceptual model of supply chain learning: An Extended Resource-Based View”, accepted by Supply Chain Management: An International Journal

Tse, M., Zhang, M. and Jia, F. (2018). “The effects of risk and reward sharing on quality performance: the case of product recall”, Accepted by International Journal of Operations and Production Management (ABS 4)

And if that was not all, Jeff Jia’s paper (with Prof. Zhaohui Wu) titled “Toward a Theory of Supply Chain Fields -- Understanding the Institutional Process of Supply Chain Localization” has been published by Journal of Operations Management, which is an UTD/FT listed journal and ABS 4*, No. 1 journal in OM earlier this year (Wu and Jia, 2018). The paper is one of the deliverables of 5-year project ‘WWF Climate savers innovation case study’ funded by WWF. It examines how MNEs promotes sustainability related products and built new supply chains in order to survive in a harsh competitive environment of China. The paper for the first time coins the terms of ‘supply chain field’ and ‘ideation or li-nian’, which are key for MNEs’ survival in China.
