Thomas C. Kinnear/Journal of Public Policy & Marketing Award

Thomas C. Kinnear 1

The Thomas C. Kinnear/Journal of Public Policy & Marketing Award recognizes a Journal of Public Policy & Marketing article that has made the most significant contribution to the understanding of marketing and public policy issues.


Articles must be published in Journal of Public Policy & Marketing in the most recent three-year time period before the last full volume year to be eligible for the award (e.g., for the 2020 award, articles had to be published in the 2016–2018 volumes).


Since 1993, the Editorial Board of the Journal of Public Policy and Marketing has annually presented a prestigious award for the outstanding JPP&M article. Renamed in 2001, through the generosity of Thomas C. Kinnear and his colleagues, friends, and former students, this award will continue to honor the outstanding JPP&M article. The award is intended to encourage high quality academic research in the field of public policy and marketing.


The Editorial Review Board of the JPP&M annually honors that article that makes the most significant contribution to the understanding of marketing and public policy issues within the most recent three-year period.
