Our study reviews scientific papers that have been published in high-quality journals on supply chain resilience (SCR) with regard to the latest developments registered in this field in the pre- and post-Covid-19 era. Adopting a rigorous method for review, i.e., systematic literature review (SLR), our work is a snapshot of the preliminary results of a broader analysis on the available literature on this topic. Although studies on SCR have been widespread for at least twenty years, our findings show that scholars’ interest in SCR has been boosted by the pandemic period led by SARS-CoV-2, with publications on SCR nearly doubled in 2021 from the previous year. The preliminary thematic content analysis of our review showed three principal macro-pillars in SCR domain that are worth of further investigations. We also discuss what are, according to our review, the principal gaps in these sub-topics that offer avenues for future research. We ascertain that the main issue these three topics have in common is the fact that unitarian views of the phenomena are actually missing or very underexplored, while single-perspective studies are more frequent. Finally, conclusions and limitations of the study are discussed at the end of the paper.
