Abstract

Interdisciplinary Research and the Journal of Consumer Afairs At the last conference of The Association for Consumer Research, the editors of the Journal o Consumer Aflairs were asked to participate in a f workshop on interdisciplinary consumer research sponsored jointly by The Association for Consumer Research and The American Home Economics Association. Our specific tasks were to describe the JCA’s interest in publishing interdisciplinary consumer research, the types of papers that might be accepted, and the priorities, if any, of JCA for the next few years. This provided us with an opportunity to review the past history of JCA in publishing and promoting interdisciplinary research as well as a chance to reflect on the status of interdisciplinary research in consumer studies. This note is a brief report of the results of this investigation. The statement of purpose and editorial policy indicates that JCA has a commitment to communicate to a multi-disciplinary readership who share a common concern for consumer interests but not a common discipline. We reviewed the first eleven volumes of JCA to gain some insights as to the nature of recent interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary work in consumer studies.
