The 2019 Marketing Research Productivity Lists tracking top individual and institutional contributors to the premier journals are now available at The Research Productivity Lists are collected annual by the AMA Doctoral Students SIG (DocSIG).

The University of Pennsylvania retained its title as the top producing institution on both university lists with the second and third spots going to Columbia and Northwestern on the premiere journal list and Tilburg and Maryland on the premiere AMA list.

Also retaining the lead spot on both author lists, V. Kumar of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University continues to be highly productive. The second most productivity author changed on of the author-focused lists. Rajdeep Grewal, Dhruv Grewal, Michael Ahearne, and Robert Palmatier rounded out the top five in the AMA Premiere Journal list. On the Premiere Journal list, Pradeep Chintagunta, Darren Dahl, Rajdeep Grewal, and Dhruv Grewal made up the remain job five.


The AMA DocSIG independently manages the creation of the four lists including two author lists and two school lists using data collected and maintained at the University of Texas at Dallas:

The lists acknowledge the top individual and school contributors to the premier marketing journals and are a powerful resource for prospective doctoral students considering their application decisions as well as those doctoral students who are on the job market. The 2019 lists represent 10-years of publications from 2010 – 2019. View the archive at
