The MIR is a leading global journal for marketing decision makers. It offers marketing knowledge from well-known academic think tanks all over the world, and focuses on all aspects of marketing intelligence, e.g. new strategies based on academic and empirical market analyses, new models and methods enabling more effective marketing decision making, new theories with empirical insights from marketing research, and state-of-the-art articles on current fields of marketing research. Readers will be informed about important developments in marketing theory, marketing methodology and marketing strategies.
The MIR delivers relevant insights from academic research, using practical and accessible rather than academic language, supported by professional journalists who "translate" academic papers. We publish papers that contribute new and often fascinating knowledge, for instance about customer behavior, brand or pricing strategies, data analysis or decision making techniques. All papers are intensively reviewed from an academic as well as a practical perspective. Our mission is to present high-quality articles by top authors who are already published or whose work has appeared in leading academic marketing journals, thereby allowing readers to follow the progress of marketing science.
The MIR is aiming to achieve a high level of acceptance and an excellent reputation among upscale target groups within marketing management, and among marketing instructors looking for interesting applications of the latest marketing concepts and methods.
