This issue of the Journal of Public Policy & Marketing fJPPMJ is the last to be published during my tenure as editor. The five years I have served as editor have been a time of growth for the journal: growth in submissions, growth in the number of papers published, and growth in the influence o/MPPM. Serving as the editor of a major journal such as J PPM is a learning experience. My service as editor of J PPM, combined with my prior terms as editor or" Journal of Marketing and Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, has taught me a great deal about the marketing discipline, the enterprise of scholarly research, and the role of marketing in a broader societal context. I use this final editorial to share some of what I have learned and to offer advice to scholars who wish to contribute to scholarship in marketing and public policy.
