Aims and Scope

Whilst the European Journal of Marketing retains a European brand identity we are a truly international journal, actively encouraging global contributions from scholars across the broad domain of marketing. We welcome novel and ground-breaking contributions from a wide range of research traditions within marketing, particularly encouraging innovative ideas in conceptual developments and research methodologies. The EJM is not preferentially disposed towards either empirical work or pure theory, nor towards one particular method or approach.

Editor Reflections

In the following collection of editorial pieces, previous EJM editor Professor Nick Lee reflects upon various key topics affecting marketing research and publishing.

Editorial Criteria

EJM will be an outlet for research that is:

  • based on rigorous, high quality scholarly work of international standing
  • from a diverse range of methodological, philosophical and theoretical approaches
  • situated within either a pure or applied research tradition
  • derived from stringent theoretical conceptualization, and appropriate and defensible research methodology
  • well written and of clear relevance and interest to marketing scholarship

The EJM is receptive to controversial topics, and new, as well as developments that challenge existing theories and paradigms. EJM will be particularly receptive to the development and testing of new theories, as long as they fill the rigour criteria detailed above. The EJM will not generally be receptive to pure opinion or unsupported conjecture, although viewpoint and commentary articles are welcome where they can meet appropriate standards of rigour. Authors who wish to submit such articles are encouraged to contact the editors prior to commencing work. The EJM is also receptive in principle to the submission of replication studies, where they are able to demonstrate a clear and substantive contribution to existing marketing knowledge.

The EJM offers unparalleled insights on new research, current practice and future trends so that practitioners and academics can gain a useful overview of marketing activity and apply that knowledge to develop appropriate strategies. All the papers are subjected to a double-blind refereeing process to ensure integrity of information is maintained. The journal enjoys a long-standing reputation as a catalyst for solving marketing problems and dilemmas, and as such is already regarded as an essential resource by many leading industry figures and supplying libraries.
