Change in Editor Submission Policy

The Policy Board of the Journal of Consumer Research has voted to institute a new policy regarding current editors publishing in JCR. The policy precluded editors from submitting their work to JCR during their term as editors. Effective July 1, 2016, a new policy went into effect that allows current editors to submit their work to JCR for publication consideration. The new policy provides for special review procedures for editor submissions. This policy is designed to ensure the anonymity of the editor and author(s), thereby eliminating potential favoritism in the review process. Read More >

Appointment of Special Guest Editor David Glen Mick

Darren Dahl  
The Policy Board is pleased to announce that Professor David Glen Mick has agreed to serve as the first guest editor under the new editor publication policy. Professor Mick is the Robert Hill Carter Professor of Marketing in the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia. He served with distinction as editor of JCR from 1999 to 2003. He is a long-term member of the JCR ERB, a past president of ACR, an SCP Fellow, the founder of the transformative consumer research movement, and one of the most respected and prolific scholars in our field. His willingness to assume the special guest editor responsibilities will greatly assist JCR in implementing this new policy as fair, balanced, and as free from conflict of interest as is feasible. Professor Mick assumed his responsibilities July 1, 2016 and has agreed to an initial three-year term.
