Instructions for authors

The Journal of Innovation and Entrepreneurship is dedicated to exchanging the latest academic research and practical findings on all aspects of innovation and entrepreneurship in spatial context and over time. The central theme of the journal is to explore why some areas grow and others regions stagnate, and to measure the effects and implications in a transdisciplinary context that takes both historical evolution and geographical location into account. The journal addresses such issues as: How does technological advance occur, and what are the strategic processes and institutions involved? How are new businesses created? To what extent is intellectual property protected? Which cultural characteristics serve to promote or impede innovation? In what ways is wealth distributed or concentrated? These are among the key questions framing policy and strategic decision-making at firm, industry, national, and regional levels.
