Research Productivity


AMA DocSIG's 2018 author and school article productivity lists are out

Greetings! I’d like to take a moment to inform you that we have recently completed the 2018 AMA DocSIG Productivity Reports and have made them available online.

As you may know, AMA DocSIG tracks publications in the premier marketing journals, according to authorship and university affiliation and publishes the Top 50 List on an annual basis. The spirit of this effort is oriented around two main goals: (1) to acknowledge the top individual and school contributors to the premier marketing journals (i.e., Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, Marketing Science) in the previous ten years and (2) to provide prospective doctoral students with useful information during their application decision process.

Special thanks to Sash Vaid (PhD 5th Year, Quant-Strategy, University of Houston), Vice Chair of Research, and to Phillip Wiseman (PhD 3nd Year, Quant-Strategy, University of Houston), Assistant Vice Chair of Research, who worked hard to get this year’s list together.

The four sections of the report include:

Author Productivity (AMA)
Author Productivity (Premier)
University Productivity (AMA)
University Productivity (Premier)

Should you have questions regarding the report, please contact Phillip Wiseman at

The reports can be found on both the AMA DocSIG and AMA websites:
