Purchasing and supply management scholarship and practice has significantly evolved during the past 25 years. In parallel, the Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management has likewise emerged from its origins as the European Journal of Purchasing & Supply Management as an important source for publishing purchasing and supply management research. The purpose of this manuscript is to provide the journal's current and future readership a historical perspective of how the journal has evolved during the last quarter century from the viewpoints of its current and former editors, and where we believe the future of purchasing and supply management is going as an academic discipline.
