So What? AMA's four journals each saw an increase in impact factor

Now What? Authors should continue to submit to AMA journals in order to receive broad recognition in the discipline.

​All four of the AMA's journals saw increases in the most recent Clarivate Analytics Journal Citation Reports, which ranks impact factors for the year 2016. These rankings continue to place the journals among the leading business journals from throughout the world.

  • Journal of Marketing - Impact factor: 5.3
  • Journal of Marketing Research - Impact factor: 3.7
  • Journal Public Policy & Marketing​ - Impact factor: 1.8
  • Journal of International Marketing - Impact factor: 3.7

Equally impressive were the increased five-year impact factors for all four the journals (based on the period of 2012 to 2016):

  • Journal of Marketing - Impact factor: 9.0
  • Journal of Marketing Research - Impact factor: 5.3
  • Journal Public Policy & Marketing​ - Impact factor: 2.8
  • Journal of International Marketing - Impact factor: 4.9

While the impact factor identified in the Journal Citation Report is not the only metric that should be used when assessing the quality and value of a journal, this is another strong indicator that the AMA's journals continue to offer both rigorous and relevant marketing scholarlship. In addition to the increased impact factor, the Journal of Marketing and Journal of Market Research continue to be included in the Financial Times Top 50 business journals which FT uses to rank business schools, MBA programs, etc. Additionally, the University of Texas - Dallas ranking system continues to use the Journal of Marketing and Journal of Marketing Research as benchmark journals through which it ranks university/department research output.
