Abstract
Background: A number of trends during the last decade, like globalisation, outsourcing, single sourcing, leanness and agility, have made the supply chain more vulnerable and “supply chain risk management” has become a research area of its own.

Objective: To characterize the existing scientific knowledge and scientific knowledge creation within supply chain risk management as it is presented in the literature.

Method: A literature review of scientific articles within supply chain risk management and a characterization of those articles, partly by the help of the basic reference data available for each article, partly with the help of a simple basic risk model.

Results: The research area is fairly new, the oldest... (More)

Objective: To characterize the existing scientific knowledge and scientific knowledge creation within supply chain risk management as it is presented in the literature.

Method: A literature review of scientific articles within supply chain risk management and a characterization of those articles, partly by the help of the basic reference data available for each article, partly with the help of a simple basic risk model.

Results: The research area is fairly new, the oldest article in the review is from 1998, but under expansion. Knowledge is today limited - only 22 scientific articles in English were found. Most articles focused the whole supply chain but some just two or three links in the chain. Five articles focused a certain industry, the others not. Supply risks were the most common type of risk studied followed by demand risk, terrorist attacks and natural disasters (Less)
