Abstract: The December 2017 issue (Issue 4) of Decision—the last issue of this volume for this year—we have put together five interesting research articles. The article by Thürer and Avittathur titled ‘How do Indian firms source from China? Implications on cross-border supply chain management’ addresses the important question of cross-border processes in an increasingly globalized economy specifically from the perspectives of how small and medium enterprises manage their cross-border supply chains. Unlike previous studies, this study focuses on smaller firms and the supply chain between India and China. This study bases its finding on 15 firms, and the result suggests that information technology and third-party agents are widely applied for executing the logistic and bureaucratic process involved. The findings are important in the light of the emphasis given to the development of long-term relationships in the literature.
