The International Journal of Marketing Semiotics & Discourse Studies,
celebrating its 10th year in operation, is an open-source, double
blind-reviewed academic journal that covers a wide spectrum of
interdisciplinary research streams, spanning:
- Conceptual approaches to the 5 P’s by drawing on different semiotic
(Peircean, structuralist, post-structuralist, sociosemiotics, cultural,
textual, visual, multimodal) and discourse analytic (CDA, MDA, CMDA, HDA,
psychoanalytic discourse analysis) perspectives.
- Cultural consumer research
- Semiotically informed and discourse analytic methodological frameworks for
conducting research into packaging design and competitive packaging analysis,
new product development, product/service/retail branding, brand identity
development, brand equity, pricing, advertising, IMC development and
competitive analysis, consumer behavior (offline and online).
- Comparing and contrasting existing marketing research conceptual and
methodological frameworks with semiotic and discourse analytic ones.
- Cross-disciplinary approaches on marketing research issues that combine
semiotics and discourse analysis with perspectives from the social sciences
and the humanities, such as anthropology, literary studies, psychoanalysis,
anthropology, rhetoric, sociology.
The International Journal of Marketing Semiotics & Discourse Studies welcomes
both conceptual and applied academic research, but also provides a forum
where agencies may publicize case studies of projects they have undertaken
The closing date for submissions to the rolling, all-year-round issue Vol. X
is December 15th 2022
