The CASE Journal welcomes compact cases for publication

The CASE Journal

The CASE Journal (TCJ) welcomes new submissions for compact cases (limited to 500-1,000 words). The goal is to make cases accessible, readable and more engaging for students.

TCJ’s Editor Rebecca Morris explains: “Compact cases offer a revolutionary change in case research, writing and teaching by recognizing a need to change both pedagogy and case writing to improve the learning experience of today’s students. Designed to be read in about 15 minutes, compact cases can be assigned as homework or distributed in class.  When all students have read the case, they can actively engage in class discussions, providing a peer-to-peer learning experience that makes the case method such a powerful learning tool."

Compact cases that are published in TCJ are eligible for consideration for the Emerald Best Case Award with a $1,000 prize.  Compact cases must be factual, accompanied by a full Teaching Note and follow the same author guidelines as full cases. All cases are fully double-blind peer reviewed.

We’ve made the following example compact case freely available until March 22.

Rebecca will be hosting case-writing hackathons at the following conferences – these are a great way to learn more about the value of compact cases and begin drafting a case as part of a group.
