Marketing the Brave
University of Stirling
2-5 July 2018

The 2018 Conference will see a new departure in terms of presentation of competitively reviewed work through expert driven workshops.

Each workshop will:

i) address a cutting-edge theoretical, methodological or pedagogical issue in marketing
ii) involve 10-15 participants who submit a competitive expression of interest paper to the workshop organisers
iii) run  in parallel on Tuesday and Wednesday at the conference. You may only submit to 1 workshop on Tuesday and 1 Workshop on Wednesday. Please see the list below.

European Journal of Marketing cover imageWe are delighted to announce that the best papers from the workshops will have the opportunity to be worked up into full papers and submitted for review for possible publication in either a special section or special issue of the European Journal of Marketing. The special section/issue will be edited by Russ Belk, Finola Kerrigan and Anne Marie Doherty.

Competitive Expressions of Interest

Competitive Expressions of Interest Papers should be a maximum of 4 pages long and adhere to General Guidelines for All Papers. Papers will not be presented in the traditional way during the workshops; rather, attendees will be given access to the papers for their chosen workshop in advance of the conference and those papers will form the basis of the activities during the workshop as advanced by the workshop leaders. Papers must be submitted on or before Midnight GMT 4 March 2018.

Papers should be submitted through the online Conference paper submission system via the link at the Call for Papers page

When submitting your paper, choose “Workshop” for type of paper, then select the correct Workshop from the Track drop-down list.

All questions or queries on the workshops should be directed to Dr Finola Kerrigan, University of Birmingham, and/or Professor Anne Marie Doherty, University of Strathclyde
