Flash COVID-19 Research Issue

April 4, 2020​

The current humanitarian crisis related to the COVID-19 outbreak around the world presents unprecedented challenges to the global community that all constituents—governments, companies, nonprofits and citizens—are facing and grappling with.

JACR plans to publish a special Flash COVID-19 Research Issue to make available to the scientific community and to public and private sector decision-makers consumer insights based on empirical findings. The goal is to provide a platform for timely research that can be used to inform policies and to stimulate ongoing research related to how societies deal with pandemics.Accepted papers will appear as a supplemental section in the January 2021 issue. For this reason, the editors will only invite manuscripts for revisions that could be satisfactorily completed in one round. The submission deadline is July 6, 2020.

Call for unpublished studies on the illusory truth effect

February 23, 2020​

We are currently carrying out a systematic map of the illusory truth effect, also known as the validity or reiteration effect. The goal is to provide the community with a summary of the research that has been conducted and to help direct future research.

We are looking for studies that manipulate repetition and then measure the effect on truth judgements. If you have completed such a study, please send it our way.

We are trying to collect as many “file drawer” studies as possible. So please share dissertations, conference papers and posters, rejected manuscripts, in-press publications, etc. If you are unsure whether or not your study meets these criteria, either contact us, or just send it anyway. We have hopefully found your study if it was published, but we'd be very happy if you contacted us to check! Please direct studies, leads, and/or questions to Emma Henderson.

Call for Papers: Scarcity & Consumer Decision Making (JACR)

March 24, 2020​

Consumers regularly face resource scarcity and/or reminders of resource scarcity, both in their personal lives and in the marketplace. However, fundamental questions related to the consequences of resource scarcity for consumer decision making remain unaddressed. The central goal of this special issue is to aggregate novel insights on this topic. We define resource scarcity broadly, as being a state in which a consumer experiences the sense that their resources are insufficient to meet their needs, goals and/or desires.

Deadline for initial manuscript submission: 06/01/2019
