The Journal of Entrepreneurship is available electronically on SAGE Journals Online at http://journals.sagepub.com/home/JOE.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
The Journal of Entrepreneurship is a multidisciplinary forum for the publication of articles and research and discussion of issues that bear upon and enfold the field of entrepreneurship. Topics appropriate and related to entrepreneurship include intrapreneurship, managership, organisational behaviour, leadership, motivation, training and ethical/ moral notions guiding entrepreneurial behaviour. Disciplinary boundaries that straddle entrepreneurship theory and research include economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, management and others. The journal particularly welcomes articles that advance our understanding of entrepreneurship phenomenon across different national and cultural contexts. Articles should be well articulated and substantive. The journal is peer-reviewed.

Guidelines for Authors
Declaration of conflicting interests
Journal of Entrepreneurship encourages authors to include a declaration of any conflicting interests and recommends you review the good practice guidelines on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.
SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway
Perspectives shall ordinarily be articles, essays, think pieces on an issue or a subject of interest to researchers and scholars. Such idea-based articles by their very nature cut across different areas and disciplines. Perspective pieces will be featured as and when the Editors receive suitable ones. The Editors may, from time to time, also seek contributions from well known and recognised scholars and thinkers for perspectives.
Research Articles based on empirical evidence which help define an area of study relevant and related to entrepreneurship, critically evaluate previous theory and research, and advance cumulative knowledge in the field.
Notes and Comments This section, when featured shall report on research findings in brief as well as commentaries on previously published work, retrospections, reflections, subjects relevant to the understanding of entrepreneurship phenomena.
