The Journal of Entrepreneurship is a multidisciplinary forum for the publication of articles and research and discussion of issues that bear upon and enfold the field of entrepreneurship. Topics appropriate and related to entrepreneurship include intrapreneurship, managership, organizational behaviour, leadership, motivation, training and ethical/moral notions guiding entrepreneurial behaviour. Disciplinary boundaries that straddle entrepreneurship theory and research include economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, management and others. The journal particularly welcomes articles that advance our understanding of entrepreneurship phenomenon across different national and cultural contexts. Articles should be well articulated and substantive. The journal is peer-reviewed
Perspectives shall ordinarily be articles, essays, think pieces on an issue or a subject of interest to researchers and scholars. Such idea based articles by their very nature cut across different areas and disciplines. Perspective pieces will be featured as and when the Editors receive suitable ones. The Editors may, from time to time, also seek contributions from well known and recognized scholars and thinkers for perspectives.
Research. Articles based on empirical evidence which help define an area of study relevant and related to entrepreneurship, critically evaluate previous theory and research, and advance cumulative knowledge in the field.
Notes and Comments. This section, when featured shall report on research findings in brief as well as commentaries on previously published work, retrospections, reflections, subjects relevant to the understanding of entrepreneurship phenomena.
Book Reviews covers reviews of current books on entrepreneurship and management.
