Description Background: At the start of the 20th century a need was identified for a dedicated scholarly journal that would publish research, case studies, new trends, et cetera covering transport, logistics and supply chain management. The Department of Transport and Supply Chain Management of University of Johannesburg launched the Journal of Transport and Supply Chain Management (JTSCM) in 2007.Objectives: The purpose of this study is to determine, through bibliometric analysis, what the impact of the journal is, which is measured over a period of 13 years.Method: The impact of the journal was determined through a variety of quantitative methods. A bibliographic database populated with journal data, was used to visualise co-authorship relationships using the tool, VOSviewer.Results: Over the period 2007 to 2019, a total number of 197 articles were published in the journal. Using Google Scholar, a total of 1987 citations for all the articles published were found. The top 10 articles with the highest number of citations are listed with numbers ranging from 27 to 160 respectively. Tables are presented with the most productive authors, the number of articles by authors from local academic institutions, the private and public sectors as well as the number of articles by international authors. A few co-authorship visualisation maps were produced which shows ‘clusters’ of research teams, networks or communities.Conclusion: The Journal of Transport and Supply Chain Management has made a significant impact over the period analysed as the number of citations and number of abstract and article views attest to.
