The Fall 2017 issue of Journal of Advertising Education will be guest-edited by advertising scholar Osei Appiah and will feature research, teaching innovations and commentary on diversity in advertising education.

Guest Editor’s Call: It is important for advertising educators and scholars to be more intentional in addressing issues of diversity in the classroom and in their research, particularly given the rapidly growing population of diverse groups. Currently, there seems to be an absence of published research about diversity in advertising-related journals. This absence may inaccurately communicate that the field undervalues diverse segments’ significant role in the marketplace.  The Journal of Advertising Education is addressing this dearth of diversity-related research by dedicating a special issue to this noteworthy topic.

 JAE is seeking manuscripts for a special issue on diversity to advance our understanding and provide insights related to advertising education, teaching and research. Diversity encompasses a wide array of categories, including race/ethnicity, gender, religion, and sexual orientation.

This special issue aims to publish original essays, thought pieces, surveys, in-depth interviews, experimental and other empirical research pertaining to a broad range of topics related to diversity and advertising education including teaching, curriculum, pedagogy, leadership, advising, careers in advertising or advertising students.


Submission Process: Manuscripts should follow the style format of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). A title page should be provided with author and contact information, followed by a separate page containing a brief abstract of no more than 120 words. Papers should be no longer than 30 double-spaced pages (including references, tables, etc.).


Paper Deadline: For full consideration papers must be received by May 1, 2017. Please send papers to guest editor Osei Appiah at appiah.2@osu.eduFor more information or questions contact Osei Appiah and include JAE-Diversity Issue in the subject line.
