50 Years of JCR: Special Anniversary Issue

Issue Editors: Bernd Schmitt, June Cotte, Markus Giesler, Andrew T. Stephen, Stacy Wood

The Journal of Consumer Research (JCR) invites submissions to its Special Anniversary Issue to be published in June 2024, exactly fifty years after the Inaugural Issue of June 1974.

Submissions for the issue will begin on March 1, 2022 and close on May 31, 2022.

The Special Anniversary Issue will pay tribute to the diverse and multi-disciplinary nature of consumer research by featuring articles on theory, conceptualizations, and constructs from various disciplinary perspectives (e.g., psychology, economics, sociology, and anthropology), various methodological approaches (e.g., experiments, qualitative studies, empirical modeling, multi-method approaches, machine learning/AI), and a wide range of consumer and consumption phenomena. As always, papers may be conceptual, theory-based, substantive, consumer culture research, or (multi-) methods/empirical quant papers (for a description and evaluation of these types of papers, see appropriate manuscripts and paper evaluation criteria).
