CALL FOR CONTENT: Resources for ECRs

The Academy of Marketing wishes to extend a call for the collation of resources for Early Career Researchers. Following successful filming of short, expert-led videos at the 2022 Academy of Marketing conference, we wish to further attract innovative and engaging scholars to aid in the development of our newly established ECR strategic initiative.

The initiative, generously sponsored by the Marketing Trust, intends to found a repository of useful resources for Early Career Researchers. Our intention is to collect expert and learned views from those in the marketing academe on topics of interest and of particular use for ECRs. To date the Academy has garnered expertise on issues such as ‘how to approach your viva’, ‘how to engage with the job market’ and ‘tips for submitting to an academic journal’. However, we welcome further contributions and expertise on topics of interest that may deal with, but are not limited to:

  • Navigating Promotion
  • Approaching Teaching
  • Applying for Grants & Evidencing Impact
  • Effective Writing Strategies
  • Research for Social Impact
  • Methods
  • Theorising
  • Alternative Modes of Representation

We welcome modes of dissemination that include, but again are not limited to: blogs, instructional videos, self-recordings, podcasts, how-to guides, etc.

We believe this call is a key opportunity for marketing academics to demonstrate academic citizenship and leadership, in addition to associating their expertise with an area of interest among the Academy. While no monetary remuneration can be offered, the Academy may be able to cover small costs. Any costs should be outlined clearly in the proposal.

The ECR Key Resources working group will evaluate proposals based on three criteria: their usefulness to the ECR community, the suitability and expertise of the intended contributors and the proposed method/s of dissemination.

Proposal Format

Your proposal (2-page max, 12-point Times New Roman) must include:

  • Detail on the intended topic of discussion and its utility for ECR’s.
  • Any copyright considerations (i.e. the copyright of authors’ own content* and (if relevant) copyright in any third party materials contained therein). Important: content creators must ensure that they have the necessary permission and consents for any third-party content that they include in their submission to AM.
  • Brief biography of the expert/s that will contribute clearly stating their suitability to create the proposed resource/s.
  • Outline of the intended mode of dissemination.
  • Proposed date of submission to the Academy.

All proposals should be submitted to:  Dr Anoop Bhogal-Nair (Anoop.Bhogal-Nair@dmu.ac.uk) and Dr Killian O’Leary (k.oleary1@lancaster.ac.uk)

Deadline: 14 October 2022; outcome will be communicated by the end of October.
