PRiMa will be an outlet for research that is:
- Based on rigorous, high quality scholarly work of global standards
- From a diverse range of methodological, philosophical and theoretical approaches
- Taken from theoretical conceptualization and appropriate research methodology
- Well written, clear, relevant and most importantly of interest to marketing practitioners as well as academicians
PRiMa will be particularly receptive to the development and testing of new theories and concepts to be brought into practise. We therefore will not generally be open to pure opinion although viewpoint and commentary articles are welcome where they can meet appropriate standards of rigour. Authors who wish to submit such articles are encouraged to contact the editors prior to commencing work. PRiMa is also receptive in principle to the submission of replication studies, where they are able to demonstrate a clear and substantive contribution to existing marketing knowledge and practise.
PRiMa aims to be a forum for the dissemination of high-quality scholarly research and thinking in marketing. Each paper submitted PRiMa will be subjected to a strict peer review process by practitioners and academicians.
