A peer reviewed international journal edited by Joël Brée, it publishes original research in the field of marketing in French and is translated into English. RAM is a key reference journal for the development and dissemination of new concepts and new methods in marketing. RAM publishes articles covering any aspect of marketing, including consumer behaviour, communication, retailing, CRM, new product development and more.

The journal will be published four times a year in French with accompanying English translations in an English Edition.

"At SAGE we are committed to supporting the goals of our society partners, and see clear synergies between our core values and that of the society Association Française du Marketing," said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. "RAM joins an extensive portfolio which includes Marketing Theory, Journal of Marketing Education and Social Marketing Quarterly, and we are delighted to have been chosen by the Association Française du Marketing (AFM) to publish their prestigious journal. We are committed to supporting RAM in its publication and the dissemination of high quality and originally distinctive research for marketing and business practitioners."

"Marketing is a large international discipline and one that is continually changing. It was important for us to select a publisher that understood both the distinctive quality of the journal's research and the distinctive field in which this is a part of," said Joël Brée, Editor. "We chose SAGE because we believe that they understand the goals of our journal and are closely aligned with our future vision for the journal - reaching a large international audience with original and high quality research. The services that SAGE offer their editors and authors, and their strength within the business sector, is something that we look forward to benefitting from, and developing, in our future together."
