Dr. Les Carlson, professor of marketing at UNL, has accepted an invitation to join the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Advertising Research. Carlson has previously been involved with the Journal of Advertising Research as both an author and reviewer.

The Journal recently celebrated 50 years in publication with a special edition collating the major findings and current state of knowledge in the discipline.

Both Dr. Douglas West, executive editor of the Journal, and Dr. Geoffrey Precourt, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, expressed enthusiasm in Carlson joining the Editorial Advisory Board at this strategic time in the publication's history.

Carlson’s primary areas of expertise include consumer behavior, consumer socialization, marketing communication and services marketing.
