Papers may come from a variety of perspectives in entrepreneurship, amongst (but not exhaustive)

  • Social, Sustainable & indigenous Entrepreneurship
  • Strategic Entrepreneurship
  • Venture Capital
  • Innovation, R&D
  • Internationalisation, Strategic Alliances, M&As
  • Startup, Growth, Scaling, Franchising and Networking
  • Family Businesses
  • Research Methodology in Business and Entrepreneurship

Articles may be empirical or conceptual, qualitative or quantitative in their approaches and can stem from a multitude of disciplines, but should always include references to relevant theory based upon most current and influential literature from excellent journals as a background.  We also invite short case studies and book reviews. The ACRN is open for diversity and encourages PhD students to submit their articles.
Fast review rounds (around 4 weeks) and comprehensive feedback are among our foci, as well as exhaustive rights for you to use the article in your teaching and research as well as in the re-publication in PhD theses and books. However all articles will be rigorously put under review, as we aim for an ABS ranking within the next few years. Several special issues will elaborate on the scope of the journal and display the diversity of the entrepreneurship field. International Publication Identifier ISSN: 2224-9729
