Peer Review and Research Impact: A Study of Publications in Marketing Science
Limited Capacity seats available

An equally important metric of scholarship is publications in high impact journals where authors must navigate the peer review process. Yet, little is known about how the review process influences an article’s research impact, post-publication. Using a unique dataset of 434 articles published in a high impact journal such as Marketing Science, we develop critical insights for researchers and academic administrators.
