Aiming to fulfill part of this gap, this paper presents a systematic review of the literature on SCRM using a content analysis approach contemplating three well known electronic data bases (Elsevier, Emerald, and Taylor & Francis Group). Sixty papers published between 2003 and 2012 in 22 peer reviewed international journals have been retrieved. Interest in the subject is growing, as evidenced by the number of papers recently published on different aspects of SCRM. The paper provides a discussion of main definitions available.Although there is no universal definition of the concept, the authors agree that the main issue is the identification and management of risk events that impact supply chains. The collected papers are classified in the theoretical, empirical and theoretical empirical dimensions and in a SCRM conceptual framework based on three different phases: risk identification; risk assessment; and instruments for SCRM. These classifications allowed a reasonable comprehensive assessment of research approaches taken in the current body of literature on the subject. The results highlight the high number of definitions for SCRM, the main topics in the SCRM field and research applications, identify the key issues addressed in these researches, and emphasise remaining gaps that deserve special attention in future research. Keywords : conceptual framework; literature review , supply chain; risk management. 1. INTRODUCTION Systematic literature reviews are a means of providing an objective theoretical evaluation of a particular topic . A systematic literature review facilitates the identification, evaluation, and interpretation of studies in a given area by examining existing concepts, practices, and theories and ultimately summarising the state of the reproducible research in a specific area[2, 3]. Thus, the use of literature reviews is necessary for those seeking to better understand the issues associated with
