The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal (IEMJ) invites authors to submit literature review articles focusing on particular context and topic areas in the field of entrepreneurship, broadly defined.  The articles should be high-impact scholarly surveys of important research in the context or topic areas. They should summarize recent research, delineate and explain the central issues, and highlight important directions for future inquiries.

These review articles will be published in a Literature Survey Forum within the regular issues of IEMJ, on an ongoing basis.  Review articles may pertain to any context or topic areas within the field of entrepreneurship.

Such context areas include but are not limited to:

  • New Independent Ventures
  • New Corporate Ventures
  • Franchising
  • Small Business Management
  • Family-Owned Businesses
  • International Entrepreneurship
  • Entrepreneurship in the Non-Profit Sector
  • Technology Ventures

Potential topic areas suitable for review articles include but are not limited to:

  • Opportunity Recognition Processes
  • Entrepreneurial Orientation
  • Business Creation Processes
  • Venture Growth and Development
  • Ecological Impacts on New Business Formation
  • New Venture Financing
  • Entrepreneurship Training and Education

Inquiries and paper submissions should be directed to Professor Gary Castrogiovanni (garycas@csufresno.edu).  The email subject line should state "IEMJ Literature Survey Forum."  All submissions will go through the regular double-blind review process, with turnaround time currently averaging less than 45 days.  Submissions should follow the IEMJ style guidelines, available at www.uv.es/iemj/InstructionsForAuthors.htm.
