Download the free digital edition! It displays four articles and JAR subscription information:
In 50 years of publication, the Journal of Advertising Research has prodded, probed, pushed, and provoked. Its body of work includes more than 2,000 pieces by both leading practitioners and academics whose combined heritage of thought leadership has given its readers a 360-degree perspective on marketing research unmatched by any other publication of its kind.
From its first issue, the Journal has sought to tap into the past to provide insight into the future. And, every once in a while, it makes sense to pause, take stock, and search for enduring meta-truths about the practice of research. In this Special Edition 40+ internationally renowned academics and industry leaders share analysis and insights from a unique body of work.
This fiftieth issue aims to provide a one-stop assessment of what we know and need to know across key areas of the marketing and advertis¬ing business. We wanted to celebrate both the heritage of this publication but also a half-century of excellence in research. To that end—to reflect the best thinking and research findings—authors were encouraged to source studies from wherever they believed the most important insights and knowledge were to be found.
The topics covered in this special edition reflect a range of issues important to a wide variety of interests and specializations within marketing and advertising. The topics also reflect the evolution of marketing services and tactics. To anchor each contribution to a spot in marketing-research history, readers will find an excerpt from a seminal paper as part of each package. And, as a dis¬tinctively different and utile touch, we have accompanied many papers in this special issue with a short commentary from a seasoned marketing professional. These contextual observations provide real-world perspectives for the articles and, we believe, provide a balance that will maximize the relevance of each subject area.

Here's some exclusive comments from former JAR Editor, Bill Cook, who's read the special edition cover to cover:
In 1960 the Journal of Advertising Research was launched just as the Space Race captured the imagination of Americans. The ARF's Technical Director, Charlie Raymond, convinced Al Lehman, Managing Director of the ARF, and the ARF board to launch a Journal to show the world that a science of advertising research was becoming a reality! The Board agreed to fund it, and selected Charlie as the editor – a role he continued to play for 20 years.
He titled his first editorial "Science in Wonderland" and the Journal has achieved an orbit that, I suspect even Charlie didn't fully anticipate. His pride in the growing science of advertising research was a measured, quiet pride.
Over the next 50 years, the Journal of Advertising Research has prodded, probed, pushed, and provoked. Its body of work includes more than 2,000 pieces by both leading practitioners and academics whose combined heritage of thought leadership has given its readers a 360-degree perspective on marketing research unmatched by any other publication of its kind.
From its first issue, the Journal has sought to tap into the past to provide insight into the future. And, every once in a while, it makes sense to pause, take stock, and search for enduring meta-truths about the practice of research.
In this Special Edition 40+ internationally renowned academics and industry leaders share analysis and insights from the JAR's rich, unique body of work. Just as the ARF uniquely serves multiple constituencies – Advertisers, Ad and Media Agencies, Media, and Research companies, and Academics, the JAR editors for fifty years have weighed the needs of research practitioners and academics. The 50th Anniversary Issue is brilliantly successful in uniting the practitioner and scholar around the two questions shared by both groups in their quest to understand the marketing environment:
"JAR keeps us grounded—years of valuable experience written and shared with the industry to help keep us focused on more meaningful marketing and research practices."
