Article citation: , (2011) "Special issue on International marketing theory, strategy and implementation: insights from Latin America Deadline for submissions 31 March 2011", International Marketing Review, Vol. 28 Iss: 1, pp. -
Despite the fact that the body of research on international marketing focused on emerging markets is growing, the attention paid to the Latin-American context continues to be very limited (Samiee and Athanassiou, 1998; Birnik and Bowman, 2007; Fastoso and Whitelock, 2007, 2010; Okazaki and Mueller, 2007). While the region has received some attention in the more general area of management – as shown, for example, by the Strategic Management in Latin America (SMLA) conferences and the special issues deriving from them in the Journal of Business Research (Vol. 63 No. 7; Vol. 62 No. 9; Vol. 61 No.6) – research in international marketing in the Latin-American context remains neglected. This is surprising, given the substantive economic importance of a region with a population of over 550 million and a GDP of approximately US$4 trillion. The International Marketing Review therefore seeks to publish a special issue titled ``International marketing theory, strategy and implementation: insights from Latin America''.
Authors are encouraged to submit papers of both an empirical and a conceptual nature, presenting insights from the Latin-American context which advance our knowledge and understanding of international marketing from a theoretical, strategic or implementation perspective. Papers should follow International Marketing Review's editorial guidelines, especially those related to the international nature of the work published in the journal (www.emeraldinsight.com/imr.htm). As such, papers on aspects of marketing within a specific country in Latin America are not encouraged, unless they demonstrate a clear contribution to international marketing knowledge.
