Prioritize articles with the sorting options

The new EconBiz sorting option "Prioritize articles" makes sure that journal articles appear at the top of the result list. Articles have usually gone through a peer review process and are therefore considered to be very reliable. With the new sorting option, you can easily access these reliable research outputs and find even faster what you are looking for.

Do you want to see the new ranking in action? Here are two searches on "supply chain resilience" – one sorted by relevance and one with prioritized articles.

The economic costs are considerable, as a study by Accenture shows.

The need to secure supply chains and make them resilient is more important than ever given the high level of interconnectedness of the global economy.
