All submitted manuscripts to EEEJ must use the style guidelines prescribed below. Submissions can be exercises in any undergraduate or graduate course, in any discipline, as long as it relates to entrepreneurship, innovation, or creativity. They must be original, not previously published, and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

All submissions should follow the guidelines below.  To submit a manuscript for consideration, send a title page and a manuscript as separate Word documents via email to Doan Winkel at

Submission of Manuscripts

EEEJ employs a two-way blind referee system. Thus, a title page is uploaded separately and not sent to referees. The title page must include the following information for each author:

  • Full name
  • Institution
  • Complete street address
  • Email address

The title page should also include the keywords and any acknowledgments. The main document, which will be sent to the referees, must not contain identifying information in the document or the file name.

Papers must be carefully edited to remove grammatical and typographic errors before submission. As an author, you are required to secure permission if you want to reproduce any figure, table, or extract from the text of another source. This applies to direct reproduction as well as “derivative reproduction” (where you have created a new figure or table which derives substantially from a copyrighted source). Refereed and edited papers will be sent to the author for further consideration if the paper is acceptable. Upon final agreement and acceptance by the author and the editor of the approved and edited paper, authors should follow the submission instructions explained above.
