Special Issues and Recent Issues

1. Read the JM-MSI Special Issue: “From Marketing Priorities to Research Agendas” Edited by John A. Deighton, Carl Mela, and Christine Moorman – Journal of Marketing, January 2021

What are the highest-impact topics for research in the marketing field? What do practitioners say they want to learn more about? What do scholars believe are the questions on which progress is most likely to be made?  Every two years the Marketing Science Institute (MSI) asks these questions of its corporate members and reports the answers as its priorities. This year, there is something new. A group of mid-career marketing academics—the MSI Scholars—wrote articles for peer review for the Journal of Marketing that expand on the MSI Priorities. Marketing leaders from companies and academics were invited to read and comment on the scholars’ work. The result, we hope, will offer important insights to the field and provoke a stream of rigorous and useful research.

4. Reminder: Call for Manuscripts – Marketing in the Healthcare Sector

Healthcare is vital to our interconnected world. As the world faces a pandemic of a magnitude not witnessed for over 100 years, we are reminded of its fundamental role. Consumers (patients) seek health, healthcare providers and institutions work to deliver care, insurance companies and governments monitor its costs, markets compete on it, policy regulates it, and society benefits from its successes or is challenged by its failings. Marketing as a discipline, however, has not lived up to its potential contributions to this important aspect of our lives. We believe it is time to bring marketing’s system-level and customer-centric view to this important topic. This Journal of Marketing Special Issue on “Marketing in the Healthcare Sector” is dedicated to promoting research on healthcare marketing with the goal of improving knowledge of this critical research domain. See the full call for papers and deadlines here.

  • Reality Check: Infusing Ecological Value into Academic Marketing Research (Harald J. van Heerde, Editor and Christine Moorman, Editor in Chief, Journal of Marketing)

In this webinar, Harald and Christine will discuss ways to enhance the real-world relevance of academic marketing research. Building on the March 2021 editorial in the Journal of Marketing, the webinar focuses on ecological value, which is the degree to which research reflects and is relevant to marketing stakeholders and marketing ecosystems. We will explain what ecological value means, why it is so important, and how you can generate more of this quality in each stage of the research process. The target audience for the webinar is scholars of all levels across the theoretical and methodological spectrum interested in improving the quality and impact of their research as well as gatekeepers (e.g., reviewers, AEs, editors) who support the knowledge development process. Specific strategies and debates will be discussed and questions will be addressed. The webinar will be held twice to reach scholars around the world: Tuesday, March 9, 2021 5:00-6:00pm Eastern (Click here) and Tuesday, March 23, 2021 7:00-8:00am Eastern (Click here)
