New Haven, Conn., July 23, 2003 - Dick R. Wittink, the George Rogers Clark Professor of Management and Marketing at the Yale School of Management, is the new editor of the Journal of Marketing Research (JMR). His three-year editorial appointment began on July 1, 2003 and will run through June 30, 2006.
The Journal of Marketing Research, a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal of the American Marketing Association, is known as the authoritative publication for academics and practitioners of marketing research. Michael J. Houston, vice president of publications for the AMA said of Wittink, "He is a highly regarded researcher who appreciates the broad substantive and methodological domains of marketing. JMR and the marketing discipline will be served well by his editorship."
Explaining his vision for JMR, Wittink said, "My intent is for the Journal of Marketing Research to continue to be the leading journal for high quality empirical, theoretical and methodological research in marketing. Articles must make a contribution to the marketing discipline, stimulate additional research, and meet the highest standards of scholarship. Managerial relevance is highly valued." The first issue under Wittink's leadership will be published in February 2004.
Wittink brings extensive academic, editorial, and consulting experience to JMR. Prior to joining the Yale School of Management faculty in 1998, he was the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Marketing and Quantitative Methods at Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management where he was also Director of doctoral programs.

A native of The Netherlands, Wittink is Honorary Professor of Marketing at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Groningen.
