Researchers in the field of production and operations management (POM), and those who evaluate them, need a clear, up-to-date picture of forums available for scholarly discourse in the field. Yet the literature contains no recent, large-scale, objective study of such publishing forums. We present the results of such a study. We employ a citation analysis methodology to examine citation trends for books, proceedings, and journals, and to determine a relative ranking of journals influencing POM research. Results of a previously reported subjective journal ranking were used to determine five base journals for our citation analysis. The data collection effort produced over 30,000 citations for the years 1989-1993. The journal rankings generated by our study are compared with those of the earlier subjective studies in the POM field.
