He also was editor for a special issue of the Journal of Public Policy & Marketing (JPP&M ) focusing on pricing, and in an article published in 2002 he was cited as the fifth most published author over the past decade in that same journal. His 1998 JPP&M article, "Comparative Price Advertising: An Integrative Review," coauthored with Dhruv Grewal, was nominated for the prestigious Kinnear Best Article Award in 2002.
