Two annual rankings are provided – one based on output in primarily empirically-focused journals and one based on primarily analytically-focused journals. The empirical list contains a total 433 universities, of which WHU is ranked 5th worldwide. The analytical ranking lists a total of 747 universities worldwide of which WHU places 148th.

For a long time, there were many rankings of supply chain management programs, but none that include the SCM research that is produced. The annual SCM Journal List rankings fill this gap by ranking supply chain management programs based on research output in top-tier SCM and OM journals. The selection of the journals takes place based on a selection of Supply Chain Management journals in existing lists used by for instance Financial Times and UT-Dallas as well as a selection of journals of leading supply chain management associations such as APICS, CSCMP, Decisions Science Journal and ISM.

The SCM Journal List is governed by the SCM Congress, which is composed of scholars from many of the leading supply chain management universities throughout the world and which reviews the journals encompassed within the list every five years, starting in 2020.
