Research description

At present the research in this line is focused on: 

a) Application of quantitative methods of sustainability in Supply Chains and investigate Green products.

b) The application of ordered weighted average (OWA) method as a decision-making tool in different areas of the business.

c) Bibliometric analysis of new trends in two areas mentioned in points a and b.


The following studies are currently under way: 


1. Evolution of the academic research on Supply Chain and Global Warming (submitted to Computers and Industrial Engineering)

2. A bibliometric overview of Environmental Modeling & Software (submitted to Environmental Modeling & Software)

3. A bibliometric analysis of Energy for Sustainable Development

4. Environmental Research analysis: a systematic overview
