AMS  Review - Editor, Manjit Yadav

 The AMS Review Theory Forum brings together leading and emerging marketing scholars to share their perspectives on theory development in marketing. Although the marketing discipline remains vibrant and progress continues to be made on multiple fronts, there has been growing concern in recent years about the lack of emphasis on conceptual/theoretical contributions.  This is detrimental to long-term knowledge development in our field and significantly diminishes its impact and influence. To address this issue, the Theory Forum has the following objectives:

  • Critically assess the state of knowledge development in marketing, with special emphasis on theoretical progress.
  • Identify significant theory development gaps in various substantive domains and advance proposals for addressing these gaps.
  • Discuss specific strategies and tools that marketing scholars can utilize for enhancing theory-building efforts in their research programs.
  • Strengthen institutional factors (e.g., journals and doctoral programs) to reinvigorate theory development in the marketing discipline.
