Journal of Chinese Entrepreneurship

Journal call for papers from Journal of Chinese Entrepreneurship

The Journal of Chinese Entrepreneurship is the first journal to focus solely on qualitative and quantitative research in all areas of China business, entrepreneurship, innovation and entrepreneurial marketing, and governmental and industrial policies that inhibit or stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation.


The journal publishes original papers, literature reviews, empirical studies, theoretical frameworks, case studies, and book reviews or general views. It is envisaged that the majority of articles will be empirical, but there will also be scope for review articles, and contributions that focus on developments in the research of Chinese entrepreneurship and innovation. For the research section, the Journal of Chinese Entrepreneurship will consider any high quality academic research article in the field of entrepreneurship. This section serves as an outlet for scholars working on entrepreneurship research relating to China and neighbouring countries. The editors invite prospective authors to submit both theoretical and empirical pieces of the highest scientific quality for publication. The 

The ‘Entrepreneurship in practice’ section publishes two types of content under the sub-headings of ‘Industry Insights’ and ‘Case Studies’. The aim of this dual perspective is to bridge the gap between theories and hypothesis, on the one hand, and practice, on the other. This section will consider both invited pieces and contributed pieces. However, the papers submitted to ‘Entrepreneurship in practice’ will be subject to an editorial review and not the standard double-blind peer review process associated with the other sections of JCE

Coverage will be devoted to, but is not limited to, important topics as follows:

  • Government policy on entrepreneurship
  • International entrepreneurship
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises
  • Family-owned businesses
  • The innovator as an individual and as a personality type
  • New venture creation and acquisitions of a growing company
  • Entrepreneurial behaviour in large organizations
  • Venture financing and entrepreneurial education
  • Minority issues in small business and entrepreneurship
  • Corporate and non-profit entrepreneurship
  • Ethics, the entrepreneur and the company.
