About the journal

WJEMSD is published in partnership with the World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD). WASD is a unique global forum that brings together people from across the world to discuss key issues relating to entrepreneurship and management that impact the world sustainable development. The aims of WASD are to promote the exchange of knowledge, experience, information and ideas among academicians, scholars, professionals, policy & decision makers, industry, executives and students to improve the mutual understanding of the role of entrepreneurship and management in achieving sustainable development all over the world.


WJEMSD aims as a forum for academics, practitioners and policymakers from around the world to exchange concepts, research, and best practices about entrepreneurship and management. The journal aims to integrate the study of these disciplines to achieve sustainable development (SD) and help to stimulate debate amongst scholars, researchers and policymakers across the world with a view to defining common, effective responses to tomorrow’s challenges. Given the apparently contradictory needs of economic growth and environmental conservation, it comes as no surprise that the impact of the global financial crisis on SD has had such a powerful influence in contemporary discussions on the future of our world.

WJEMSD encourages Guest Editors to submit proposals for Special Issues addressing specific issue(s) of the broad theme of the journal or resulting from relevant conferences. WJEMSD will also consider themed special issues with a focus on a particular country or a region.
