International Journal of Integrated Marketing Communications
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2010

Racom Communications


Two of the most powerful forces in business in the past two decades have been IMC (Integrated Marketing Communications) and globalization. Dozens of books and hundreds of articles have been written about both. Few attempts have been made to bring the two topics together in a single publication—until now. The International Journal of Integrated Marketing Communications will publish articles of interest and use to scholars, teachers, and practitioners on the subject of IMC in both domestic and international contexts.

Submission Guidelines

Initial Queries

Initial queries should include a one-page summary or abstract (250 words max.) and an outline of the proposed work. Topics might include any of the subject areas mentioned in the Editorial Mission Statement, with an IMC emphasis. Such topics include:

  • Accountability measurements
  • Aligning strategy and tactics
  • Market triggers and predictors
  • All tactical areas in Marketing Communications including, but not limited to, those mentioned in the Editorial Mission Statement.
  • Teaching methodology or cases in any of these areas.

Send your submission by email to the Managing Editor, who will forward it to the Co-Editors. Your submission will be reviewed for fit with the IJIMC’s purpose and mission, and you will be contacted regarding next steps.
