Document Type


Publication Date



Journals often mark special, commemorative occasions and major milestones by engaging in healthy introspective evaluations of their history, strategy, evolution, and impact (e.g.,Calabretta, Durisin, & Ogliengo, 2011; Chintagunta et al., 2013; Huber, Kamakura, & Mela, 2014; Hustad, 2013; Schrock, Zhao, Hughes, & Richards, 2016). In this rich tradition, we mark the changing of the guard at Industrial Marketing Management, and Peter Laplaca's long tenure as Editor of IMM by tracing the impact Industrial Marketing Management has had on major marketing and specialized B2B marketing journals from 1999 to 2013. This period of interest overlaps significantly with Peter's stewardship of the journal.
