Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

For this editorial, we would like to discuss the framing of intellectual contributions. High-quality research, we argue, needs to be interesting, surprising, and compelling (Hubbard & Lindsay, 2002; Johnson 2003; Sandberg & Alvesson 2011; Stewart 2009). It must revise and refine our conceptual and theoretical vocabularies, offering the potential to enrich marketing practices of all types. Whilst marketing has traditionally been associated with logical empiricist-based research, we wish to see contributions from across the research spectrum. As well as being interested in the production of knowledge for marketing management, we hope to see submissions that take marketing management as an object for analysis, where marketing practices and knowledge are subjected to the academic gaze for new insights to emerge.
