The Doctoral Student SIG (DocSIG) is a special interest group of the American Marketing Association designed specifically for marketing doctoral students. DocSIG was founded by marketing doctoral students and continues to respond to the needs of marketing doctoral students. DocSIG offers opportunities for students to develop professional skills in the areas of research, writing, teaching, presenting, reviewing, and other areas that aid in job placement and career college paper format development. In addition, we seek to provide a community for students of marketing to interact, ask questions, and generally support each other. In this way, DocSIG not only aims to offer useful information that can aid students in their study program, but strives to facilitate professional relationships that will last long after one’s years as a doctoral student.
