The Journal of the Association for Consumer Research is a quarterly journal of thematic explorations from the Association for Consumer Research. The mission of JACR is to broaden the intellectual scope and interdisciplinary influence of the Association for Consumer Research. Each issue of JACR has a well-defined theme, chosen from the broad substantive, managerial, and methodological topics relevant to understanding consumer behavior; and each issue is directed by a different team of editors who, with their relevant experience and expertise, are best poised to assemble outstanding articles around that theme. For more information click here.
