Aims and scope


The Journal of Entrepreneurship and Leadership (JEAL) explores behavioural and managerial issues relating to all aspects of entrepreneurship and leadership development, from a global perspective. JEAL is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal designed to provide the highest quality on-going forum for academic researchers to exchange information, insights and knowledge based on both theoretical development and empirical research on contemporary entrepreneurship and leadership. 

The JEAL publishes original, high quality articles that employ qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method studies that provide fresh insights into new and established research questions. These may be positivist, qualitative studies or interpretivist approaches. Studies need to clearly illustrate that appropriate methods have been used to explore research question(s).  JEAL welcome high-quality articles that contribute to the advancement of the study of contemporary entrepreneurship and leadership.
