2019 Sheth Foundation/Journal of Marketing Award

Matt Weingarden

Manjit S. Yadav and Paul A. Pavlou’s article “Marketing in Computer-Mediated Environments: Research Synthesis and New Directions” Published in the January 2014 Issue of the Journal of Marketing received the 2019 Sheth Foundation/Journal of Marketing Award.

The Sheth Foundation/Journal of Marketing Award honors the article published in the Journal of Marketing that has made the most significant long-term contributions to the field five years after its publication.


Finalists were selected by JM’s AEs, ERB, and Advisory Board. The winning article was selected by a committee comprised of Coeditors and Advisory Board members.

This year’s winner is a conceptual paper that offers a theoretically rigorous, forward-looking framework to help scholars understand the long-term trajectory of computer-mediated environments (CMEs).

The article demonstrate that the emerging, multi-faceted literature in this domain has a parsimonious underlying structure involving four key interactions within CMEs: firm-consumer interactions, consumer-firm interactions, consumer-consumer interactions, and firm-firm interactions. The framework not only organizes the literature, but also identifies important gaps and promising theory development opportunities.
