This paper suggests the traditional academic advertising research model is likely broken, given the changes in advertising which have occurred over the past few years. Five model areas of the research approach are identified as needing re-thinking, (a) the advertising problem, (b) sample frame and subjects, (c) consumer behaviour assumptions, (d) research methodologies and (e) findings. Suggestions are made for improvement and a call for the establishment of a blue ribbon panel for the next ICORIA meeting to report back on recommended changes are offered as solutions.

Impact and interest:

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.
