Marketing Letters. ISSN 0923-0645 (In Press) OPEN ACCESS


Over the past several decades, scholars have highlighted the obligations and opportunities for marketing as a discipline to play a role in creating a better world — or risk becoming irrelevant for the largest problems facing consumers and society. Climate change, poverty, obesity, discrimination and bias, and the Covid-19 pandemic have demonstrated that marketing (and businesses) cannot operate in isolation from the broader community. We seek to provide a framework for authors and reviewers to enhance the rigor and relevance of research in marketing that not only contributes new knowledge to science, but also makes a positive difference in the world. In doing so, we hope to encourage further consideration of the role of marketing scholarship in providing a novel lens into potential solutions for societal concerns.
