Dr Laura Salciuviene

Formerly at Lancaster University

Research Interests

I am interested in how consumer attitudes towards companies are formed. I have examined different sources of influence on consumer attitudes. I have studied consumers across national, international and online environments. Research findings within those contexts reveal common patterns that form the basis for improved marketing communications with the target audience for the company.


I joined the Department of Marketing at Lancaster University from the Manchester Business School, University of Manchester (United Kingdom).


Academic & research-related experience:

I have co-authored more than 85 articles and conference papers. They were published in both national and international peer-reviewed journals, including Advances in Consumer Reseach, Journal of Marketing Management, International Journal of Intercultural Relations, International Business Review, International Journal of Cross-Cultural Management, International Journal of Online Marketing and Journal of International Consumer Marketing and presented at conferences of high international standing (e.g., US Academy of Consumer Research Conference, US AMS World Marketing Congress, European Marketing Academy Conference).


Co-editing special issues

I have acted as guest co-editor for special issues of the Journal of Consumer Behaviour and the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research.


Industry-related experience:

I have been a small business owner (in the retailing sector) for more than a decade. Also, I have worked as a market researcher for more than five years. I have managed and executed marketing research projects for companies.
