Journal of Consumer Psychology (JCP)

Editor: Amna Kirmani
Co-Editor: Anirban Mukhopadhyay

The Journal of Consumer Psychology publishes articles that contribute both theoretically and empirically to an understanding of consumer judgment and behavior and the processes that underlie them. It is focused on consumer phenomena at both the intrapersonal and the interpersonal level. Areas of emphasis include, but are not restricted to, consumer judgment and decision processes, attitude formation and change, reactions to advertising, consumer information processing, affective cognitive and motivational determinants of consumer behavior, family and group decision processes, and cultural and individual differences in consumer behavior. Most articles to be published are likely to report new empirical findings, obtained either in the laboratory or in field experiments, that contribute to existing theory in both consumer research and psychology. However, the results of survey research, correlational studies, and other methodological paradigms are welcomed to the extent that the findings obtained extend our current knowledge of current judgment and behavior. Theoretical and/or review articles that integrate existing bodies of research and that provide new insights into the underpinnings of consumer behavior and decision processes are also encouraged.
