Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Games is dedicated to supply chain contracting. The need to coordinate supply chains and align the operations of inter-linked firms is increasingly vital to ensure efficient, resilient, and sustainable supply chains. Potential topics include contract structures, risk-sharing tactics, quick-response measures, and gain-sharing methods. We encourage domain-specific papers that discuss supply chain contracting issues in agriculture, manufacturing, healthcare, and various services. Below are further keywords that may help to identify suitable topics for the Special Issue.
