Call for Submissions: Journal of Marketing Research Special Issue Virtual Conference

Mitigation in Marketing

The marketing discipline has overwhelmingly focused on maximizing positive outcomes, such as happiness and satisfaction for consumers and revenues, profits, and marketing-mix effectiveness for companies. However, marketers can also examine reducing negative outcomes for individuals, firms, and society at large. We call this approach mitigation in marketing (MiM), which entails understanding, measuring, alleviating, and assuaging the potentially harmful consequences of consumer, firm, and employee activities.

The Journal of Marketing Research is  developing a special issue on Mitigation in Marketing. We are pleased to host this virtual conference to provide further context for the special issue and create an opportunity for interested authors to exchange ideas, provide feedback, and learn from each other.
