Special issue on International marketing theory, strategy and implementation: insights from Latin AmericaDeadline for submissions 31 March 2011
Article Type: Call for papers From: International Marketing Review, Volume 28, Issue 1
Despite the fact that the body of research on international marketing focused on emerging markets is growing, the attention paid to the Latin-American context continues to be very limited (Samiee and Athanassiou, 1998; Birnik and Bowman, 2007; Fastoso and Whitelock, 2007, 2010; Okazaki and Mueller, 2007). While the region has received some attention in the more general area of management – as shown, for example, by the Strategic Management in Latin America (SMLA) conferences and the special issues deriving from them in the Journal of Business Research (Vol. 63 No. 7; Vol. 62 No. 9; Vol. 61 No.6) – research in international marketing in the Latin-American context remains neglected. This is surprising, given the substantive economic importance of a region with a population of over 550 million and a GDP of approximately US$4 trillion. The International Marketing Review therefore seeks to publish a special issue titled ``International marketing theory, strategy and implementation: insights from Latin America''.
Authors are encouraged to submit papers of both an empirical and a conceptual nature, presenting insights from the Latin-American context which advance our knowledge and understanding of international marketing from a theoretical, strategic or implementation perspective. Papers should follow International Marketing Review's editorial guidelines, especially those related to the international nature of the work published in the journal (www.emeraldinsight.com/imr.htm). As such, papers on aspects of marketing within a specific country in Latin America are not encouraged, unless they demonstrate a clear contribution to international marketing knowledge.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
Cross-national market segmentation
Foreign market entry forms (e.g. exporting, FDI, licensing, franchising)
Global and regional products, brands, and branding strategies
Pricing and distribution strategies
Standardization vs adaptation issues
Research design challenges in international marketing in theLatin-American context
Validity and validation of constructs developed elsewhere in aLatin-American context
Country of origin effects
International advertising strategy and implementation
The internationalization of Latin-American multinational enterprises (MNEs).
Please submit papers by 31 March 2011 via the Manuscript Central online submission system: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/imrev
