Publishing in socially oriented journals – the state of play in Asia

Purpose – This paper seeks to examine institutional publishing in six socially oriented marketing journals generally and then to explore the performance within Asian institutions and those within Australia and New Zealand, in detail. Design/methodology/approach – Authorships of Journal of Macromarketing , Journal of Public Policy and Marketing , Journal of Consumer Affairs , Journal of Non‐Profit and Public Sector Marketing , International Journal of Non‐Profit and Voluntary Sector Marketing , and Social Marketing Quarterly , from 1999‐2003, were tracked by institution and nationality of school. Results are reported for both number of authors and per cent of authorship. Findings – There is a dominance of publishing by North American academics within the social area. Asian academics appear to be generally under‐represented, based on the region's size, although scholars in Australia and New Zealand perform relatively better than one might anticipate. Research limitations/implications – A review of socially oriented publishing performance by institutions in Asia identifies that socially oriented research appears to be a focus in Australia and New Zealand across a range of institutions, but occurs less frequently in other Asian countries. Practical implications – Results are useful for understanding the role of socially oriented research among scholars in Asia and the Pacific. While Australia and New Zealand have made marks in socially oriented research, it appears to be a potential growth area for marketing scholars in Asia and the Pacific. Originality/value – This is the first paper to examine the role of geography in publishing among those interested in social issues in marketing. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Asia Pacific Journal of Marketing and Logistics Emerald Publishing
