Call for papers - Journal of Entrepreneurship and Public Policy

Journal call for papers from Journal of Entrepreneurship and Public Policy

Journal of Entrepreneurship & Public Policy (JEPP), to be launched in 2012, is currently seeking papers. Edited by Professor Noel Campbell of the University of Central Arkansas, JEPP was created to encourage and disseminate quality research about the vital relationships among institutions, entrepreneurship, and economic outcomes, and to improve the quality of the political discourse about entrepreneurship and development policies.

Institutions - especially public policies - are a significant determinant of economic outcomes; entrepreneurship and enterprise development are often the channel by which public policies affect economic outcomes, and by which outcomes feed back to the policy process. The journal considers high quality articles that advance understanding of the relationships among public policy and entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship and economic development, or all three areas.

The journal seeks to publish empirically oriented papers and accepts a wide variety of empirical evidence, such as statistical analyses, simulations, case or historical studies, and survey, experimental, or computational methods. The journal also considers conceptual or theoretical papers that indicate a direction for future research, or otherwise advance the field of study.

The coverage includes, but is not limited to:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Public policy
  • Public policies and behaviour of economic agents
  • Interjurisdictional differentials and their effects
  • New firms; startups
  • Microeconomic analyses of economic development
  • Development planning and policy
  • Innovation and invention: processes and incentives
  • Regional economic activity: growth, development, and changes
  • Regional development policy.
