The journal accepts four types of manuscripts: empirical, synthesis, research notes, and editorials.
All submitted scientific manuscripts should have a solid basis in theory and be supported by a meaningful set of background literature. Manuscripts submitted to the journal are expected to be rigorous and steeped in the relevant literature. Previously published manuscripts or manuscripts under review with other journals will not be accepted for review.
Empirical manuscripts: These manuscripts are essentially based on data. Manuscripts rooted in both quantitative and qualitative traditions are welcome.
Synthesis manuscripts: These are designed to consolidate knowledge in a particular research area. A thorough literature search and selection process should be carefully documented and justified. These manuscripts lead to a new understanding of existing knowledge and may include development of proposed frameworks or models to guide further research.
Research notes: The journal also publishes communications in the form of research notes or comments from readers on published papers or current issues. Research notes may also present methodological commentaries and work-in-process for constructive feedback from peers.
Editorials: These contributions, often invited, come from scholars, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy actors.
