Broadening the boundaries of academic publication : a follow-up and suggestion

Neale, Larry, Murphy, Jamie, & Forrest, Edward (2006) Broadening the boundaries of academic publication : a follow-up and suggestion. In Proceedings of ANZMAC 2006 Conference, 4-6 December 2006, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. (Unpublished)


Among the many challenges facing marketers today are two broad questions: how to best utilise technology to store and disseminate the growing base of knowledge, and how to bridge the research divide between academics and practitioners. The authors propose that ANZMAC take the lead offered from other fields such as medicine and engineering to create the ANZMAC Research Data Warehouse (ARDW). The ARDW would require authors of conference papers to contribute not only their results and conclusions, but importantly, their databases to the warehouse, thus allowing replication and validation of studies. Marketing academics would also encourage practitioners to contribute to the ARDW, learn from the successes and failures of others, and better connect with the academic community. Working together, academics and practitioners could help transform abstract knowledge and industry experience into practical intelligence.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
