Abstract
<i>Purpose of this paper</i><br>

The purpose is twofold: to map the reviewers’ perspective of evaluation of case based

logistics and supply chain management research; and to develop a framework with all

criteria needed to design, conduct, and present rigorous case study research. This

framework can be used by both researchers and reviewers.<br>



<i>Design/methodology/approach</i><br>

An interview study is performed to establish how reviews currently are being conducted in

logistics and supply chain management journals. A literature review in combination with a

both divisive and agglomerate cluster analysis is applied... (More)
<i>Purpose of this paper</i><br>

The purpose is twofold: to map the reviewers’ perspective of evaluation of case based

logistics and supply chain management research; and to develop a framework with all

criteria needed to design, conduct, and present rigorous case study research. This

framework can be used by both researchers and reviewers.<br>



<i>Design/methodology/approach</i><br>

An interview study is performed to establish how reviews currently are being conducted in

logistics and supply chain management journals. A literature review in combination with a

both divisive and agglomerate cluster analysis is applied to develop the framework. The

framework is compared to the evaluation criteria provided by reviewers.<br>



<i>Findings</i><br>

There is an expressed need for a more structured and systematic review process for case

based articles. An established framework for evaluation of case based research does not

exist. There is a lack of standardized terminology in the field. A comprehensive framework

for case based research is developed and presented.<br>



<i>Research limitations/implications</i><br>

The research is focused on case studies only.<br>



<i>What is original/value of paper?</i><br>

This paper present both the reviewers perspective on case study evaluation and it provides

a comprehensive framework for all steps of a rigorous case based research process

including what aspects that should be included and recommendations for how and why

certain aspects should be included. (Less)
