National Publications Materials Management Review

Materials Management Review (MMR), is the Professional Journal for, of and by the Materials and Supply Chain Management Industry in India. It seeks to be the voice of the industry – and also the eyes, ears, and nose with in-depth coverage of the latest concepts, trends, interviews and opinions. MMR is arguably a very comprehensive journal in its field.


The MMR is structured around five main sections. These sections aim to INFORM, APPLAUD, CREATE DIALOGUE, DEBATE, and EDUCATE. The MMR brings together the entire industry on a platform that enables sharing of thoughts, ideas, cases, best practices, concepts, and the latest happenings in the industry.


The MMR debuted in January 2000. It is a monthly journal and is edited by the eminent Mr. M. K Bhardwaj, Chief Editor of MMR and Chairman-Board of Studies, IIMM. He is assisted by able team of Core Committee, Editors and of course production people of MMR. The journal is published from the Delhi NHQ of IIMM, and the publisher of IIMM Mr. O.P Longia and following is the Core Committee and editorial board.

The MMR is unique in many ways. Being read among the cream of the Indian Industry, the MMR also enjoys the patronage of the prestigious Indian Institute of Materials Management (IIMM). The members of the IIMM are unarguably some of the leading lights of the Indian Supply Chain Industry. It is also read by educational institutes, government bodies and institutes, and manufacturers across the nation. This journal is reaching every month to all the 10,000 members of IIMM and also to 40 countries of the world representing 42 professional bodies who are members of International Federation of Purchasing & Supply Management (IFPSM).

But what is more unique, is the methodology that MMR uses to put every issue together. In the words of the Chief Editor, M.K.Bhardwaj; “…our editorial team stays lean with just the right touch of zonal representation. Decentralization would be the name of the game. The decentralization will spread to many members and readers, such that this journal will be put together in all corners of India, and brought together between two covers through the powers of virtual integration – the web and the e-mail. Now. Isn’t this a microcosm of many ‘good

So, although the MMR is published from Delhi, it is more of a culmination of diligent contributions from members and readers across the length and breath of both -the country and the industry
