Journal Journal of Small Business and Entrepreneurship

Aim & Scope

Journal of Small Business & Entrepreneurship is a double-blind reviewed and scholarly Journal dedicated to publishing in English and French original and outstanding studies that improve knowledge and understanding of entrepreneurship and small business management and, eventually, shape these fields of research. Studies published might be theoretical pieces, qualitative and quantitative empirical work, and/or case studies. Given that the objective of the Journal is to push the boundaries of current entrepreneurial and small business management thoughts, case studies to be published in JSBE must have a theoretical perspective. The onus of proving the theoretical contribution of the case lies on the author who, to this end, can introduce the case with a short text of 250-500 words. The theoretical contribution can be related to the fact that the case challenges the existing theory or highlights it better. Consequently, cases and teaching notes that are written just for a didactic purpose as an illustration of a theory in classroom will not fit to being published in the JSBE . Scope Studies published in the JSBE can be from and based on Canada or other countries of the world. They can cover topics related to matters such as: A. Start-up and resource gathering for an SME: Starting, buying and selling an SME; Financing, funding, banking, venture capital, audit and accounting in SMEs; Entrepreneur characteristics, leadership and work-life balance; Identification of business opportunities, business incubators and mentorship; Support services to entrepreneurship and SMEs.

C.
