Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal


The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, founded in 2007, is targeted at publishing the most influential managerially oriented entrepreneurship research in the world. It is a research journal that publishes original work recommended by a developmental, double-blind review process conducted by peer scholars.  Strategic entrepreneurship involves innovation and subsequent changes which add value to society and which change societal life in ways that have significant, sustainable, and durable consequences.

For the purposes of the SEJ, entrepreneurship has special meaning, and means much more than the acts of entrepreneurs. Click here to learn more about the SEJ vision.

Special Issue Proposals

The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal periodically advertises a call for future Special Issue (SI) proposals, which then go through a careful process of evaluation and development. Additionally, the publication and proposals of SIs have long lead times, and as a result, we are unable to consider SI submission outside the aforementioned process.
