Call for SWOCC Working Papers Series
The SWOCC Working Paper Series has been initiated to bring original academic research on brands and brand communication to researchers and practitioners.
It presents early versions of papers, which put forward new theoretical and empirical perspectives on the disciplines: marketing communication, public relations, corporate communication, consumer intelligence, consumer behavior, branding and advertising.
By disseminating these working papers, SWOCC intends to offer directions for further action and research. All working papers are peer-reviewed by external referees, following a double-blind policy.
Papers can be submitted all year. By submitting a copy the (first) author agrees to the manuscript being presented to members of the SWOCC Review Board

The recommended length of contributions is 5.000 – 10.000 (including footnotes and references). All contributions should be in (UK) English.
