There exists a gap in the literature available in the area of supply chain management (SCM) studies, on providing theoretical support for explaining the existence and the domain of SCM. This study, explores eight SCM theories and views for SCM studies: resource-based view, transaction cost theory, knowledge-based view, strategic choice theory, agency theory, institutional theory, systems theory, and network perspective. The main objective of this paper is to provide a framework for the developments of SC theories, and elaborate the possible ways that these theories can be applied to the case of Business to Business (B2B) e-Marketplace (EM) enabled supply chain. The case of EM is selected as one of the most recent collaborative tools in SCM studies and describes how the current SCM theories can be employed.
