International Marketing Trends Conference 


WEBINAR : The Academy of Marketing Science: “Increasing Research Visibility and Impact” (October 6)

AMS invites all academics/doctoral students in Marketing to participate in this event, which focuses on a rich discussion of increasing the visibility and impact of one’s research work to increase citations, brand oneself in the area of expertise, and enhance contributions above and beyond academic silos. The goal of this webinar is to realize that promoting our research is not just for extroverts but a science we can all understand and implement. This webinar intends to share collective insights and experiences from an expert panel from three different continents on various topics including researcher branding, finetuning research promotions based on the target market, how to engage with media, and tips from a JAMS publisher’s perspective.  

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, October 6, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (USA Eastern Time), which corresponds to 9pm to 10pm (Spain Time).  

It will be moderated by Hyunju Shin (Georgia Southern University) and feature panelists including Victoria Crittenden (Babson College), Dan Laufer (Victoria University of Wellington), Cleopatra Veloutsou (University of Glasgow), and Nicholas Philipson (Springer New York). 

**This event is free and open to all academics/doctoral students regardless of AMS membership.**

Knowledge generation within the field of marketing is accelerating at a tremendous speed while at the same time remaining fragmented and hard to overview (Snyder, 2019). This makes it hard, both for researchers and for practitioners, to keep up with state-of-the-art and to remain at the forefront of knowledge in marketing, as well as to assess the collective evidence on a particular topic. As a result, important research findings and theory development risk to be overlooked. Standing on the shoulders of giants, by building your research on and relating it to existing knowledge is the building block of all academic research activities, regardless of discipline. This is why the literature review as a research method is more relevant than ever. 

A literature review can be described as a more or less systematic way of collecting and synthesizing previous research (Tranfield, Denyer, & Smart, 2003). All good research starts with identification and description of relevant research.  However, a good literature review, the kind that we are looking forward to receiving, is more than that:  A well-conducted review as a research method creates a firm foundation for advancing knowledge and facilitating theory development (Snyder, 2019). By integrating empirical findings and perspectives from many studies, a literature review can address research questions with a power that no single study has. In addition, a literature review is an excellent way of synthesizing research findings to show evidence on a meta-level and to uncover areas in which more research is needed, provide evidence to a certain question or give a historical overview of the development of an academic field.  

The guest editors of this special issue are interested in receiving state-of-the-art review papers that include a compelling analysis, synthesis and evaluation of both mature and novel subject areas that are highly relevant within the field of marketing or that establish new links between marketing and other disciplines. In addition, this special issue aims to inspire future research by provide new ideas and directions on a number of marketing related topics to inspire academics to conduct novel research and stimulating knowledge production.  

All good literature reviews start with a focused, and structured or semi-structured identification and description of relevant research. However, a good literature review, the kind that we are looking forward to receiving, is more than that: we strongly encourage review papers that review and synthesize theories, methods and contexts in the field of marketing with an aim to develop theory, identify knowledge gaps and stimulate new research questions (see for e.g., Alves et al., 2016; Witell et al, 2016; McColl-Kennedy et al, 2017; Carlborg et al., 2014).  

We encourage scholars to review and synthesize widely used topics, theories, methods and contexts in marketing. A literature review should not be seen as an end in itself, but as an intermediary way to facilitate the work so that other researchers can continue it and achieve more ambitious goals. The objective of such reviews should be to develop theory, identify research gaps and provide agendas for further research. A special focus will be placed on rigor and transparency on the process of conducting the review. As for methodology, it should be structured and follow guidelines provided by for example Snyder (2019) or Tranfield et al., (2003). Depending on the maturity of the topic, contributions that are expected are for example (but not limited to): 

  • Present state-of-the-art knowledge on a topic  
  • Establishment of comprehensive research agendas 
  • The development of conceptual frameworks 
  • Present the state of evidence on a specific research question (meta-analysis) 
  • Historical overviews 

In this vein, the current special issue should consider (but not be limited to) literature broadly focusing on a contemporary and highly relevant topic in marketing using a systematic, semi-systematic or integrative review design (Snyder, 2019).  Topics that could be of interest (but not limited to): 

  • Consumer behavior 
  • Social Media Marketing 
  • New Technologies and Marketing 
  • Tourism and Hospitality Marketing 
  • Service Marketing 
  • Advertising and Marketing Communications 
  • Marketing in Business-to-Business  
  • International Marketing  
  • Marketing Ethics
