Submit your manuscript

Perhaps you and/or a colleague at your school/ organization would be interested in submitting a manuscript for consideration in a future Journal of Ethics & Entrepreneurship (JEE) issue! We are searching for excellent papers now.

JEE publishes interdisciplinary manuscripts (empirical, theoretical and conceptual). JEE is 1 of only 5 journals partnered with the United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE).

Manuscripts considered for JEE are double-blind reviewed and the process takes fewer than 60 days for an initial decision. ere are no submission fees or any cost whatsoever to be published in JEE. JEE is listed in Cabell’s Directory of Publishing Opportunities.

Manuscripts submitted using APA style, in MS Word format, and no more than 9,000 words are preferred. However, JEE will consider all quality papers and work with the author(s). Note that manuscripts submitted to JEE must not have been published elsewhere nor be under consideration by another journal. A section of JEE is devoted to non-refereed articles or commentaries dealing with one or more of the 18 themes outlined below.

Please email your manuscript to [email protected]. I look forward to receiving a manuscript from you!

JEE articles are discoverable on EBSCO Business Source Complete, ProQuest’s ABI/INFORM Complete, Gale and other research databases.

JEE is funded in its entirety by the multimillion dollar John and Linda Godbold College of Business Endowment at Gardner-Webb University.
