The Academy's academic journal, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science (JAMS), was founded in 1972 by Dr. Harold W. Berkman and is published on a quarterly basis by Springer. The journal has consistently grown in stature under the direction of editors including William Darden, Robert Peterson, David Cravens, A. Parasuraman, Rajan Varadarajan, David Stewart, and the current editor Tomas Hult. JAMS is a double-blind refereed publication for which all manuscripts are reviewed by Editorial Board members and ad hoc referees. Occasionally, JAMS publishes special issues devoted to a theme of major significance; current calls for papers can be downloaded from the journal's website. More information about the journal's processes and history is available from its article on Wikipedia.
Members of the Academy receive the Journal at no additional cost beyond annual membership dues, and it is available to non-members, corporate sponsors, and libraries by subscription. JAMS currently has more than 500 institutional subscribers from more than 30 countries in the world, was rated as one of the top marketing journals and has been highlighted by ISI in their InCites publication. Articles in JAMS are abstracted/or indexed in ABI/Inform; Accountants' Index; Business Index; Current Contents; PAIS Bulletin; PsycInfo; Psychological Abstracts; Accountants1 Index, Supplement; Social Sciences Citation Index.
The Academy of Marketing Science is pleased to introduce its new theory journal, the AMS Review. The AMS Review publishes thoughtful contributions that offer insights and perspectives extending knowledge and understanding of marketing-related phenomena. The Review is receptive to different philosophical perspectives and levels of analysis that range from micro to macro. Especially welcome are manuscripts that integrate research and theory from non-marketing disciplines such as management, sociology, economics, psychology, geography, anthropology, or other behavioral sciences. Examples of suitable manuscripts include those incorporating conceptual and organizing frameworks or models, those extending, comparing, or critically evaluating existing theories, and those suggesting new or innovative theories. Comprehensive and integrative quantitative syntheses of research literatures (i.e., meta-analyses) are appropriate. Manuscripts that focus on descriptive literature surveys, proselytize research methods or techniques, or report findings from original empirical research will not be considered for publication in the Review. Similarly, the Review will not publish manuscripts focusing on practitioner advice or marketing ducation.
Members of the Academy receive the Journal at no additional cost beyond annual membership dues, and it is available to non-members, corporate sponsors, and libraries by subscription.
