In recent years researchers have shown a growing interest in vertical interorganisational relations, above all in the Supply Chain. The absence of previous reviews of the literature on this topic, which would allow us to establish the key issues in Supply Chain Management, led us to analyse the academic research published in the most important Spanish journals on Economics (11 journals) between 1996 and 2006. The 74 works selected are studied from four points of view: how their scientific nature has evolved, research groups and/or universities, the lines of research that they belong to, and the methodology employed in each case. Lastly, these findings are compared with similar works published internationally that propose research agendas. This will enable us to determine the current level of development in this field and to suggest future lines of research.
