Entrepreneurship Education & Pedagogy (EE&P) is USASBE’s peer reviewed opportunity for entrepreneurship educators to both publish their scholarship and showcase their practice. EE&P aims to provide a forum for the dissemination of research, teaching cases, and learning innovations focused on educating the next generation of entrepreneurs. Conventional research relating to entrepreneurship pedagogy is welcome, as is work that challenges convention. EE&P welcomes work related to entrepreneurship education, broadly defined, from any discipline and at any educational level.

EE&P's editorial team is committed to ensuring research published in the journal is meaningful and impactful, and will use a developmental approach to work with authors throughout the review process so that they may communicate their ideas and insights to others in the most impactful manor. While EE&P's target audience are primarily university educators engaged in researching and teaching entrepreneurs, our broader audience includes educators from all disciplines, as well as administrators, consultants, trainers, K-12 teachers, and policy makers.

EE&P publishes multiple types of peer-reviewed content:

1. Research Articles: qualitative and/or quantitative studies, or theoretical or conceptual articles, exploring the field of entrepreneurship education, broadly defined.

2. Teaching Cases: nonfictional teaching cases related to any entrepreneurially relevant topics with the inclusion of a comprehensive and well executed instructors guide to debriefing the case narrative.

3. Learning Innovations: contemporary and experientially oriented teaching and learning approaches or exercises that contain both the requisite detail needed to replicate the innovation and evidence of its effectiveness.

    Please read the guidelines below then visit the Journal’s submission site to upload your manuscript. Please note that manuscripts not conforming to these guidelines may be returned.

    Research Articles

    Articles should be as jargon-free as possible. Terminology and acronyms that are not common knowledge should be defined. Technical material should be placed in notes or appendices whenever possible. Three descending levels of headings should be used periodically and consistently throughout the article. Where possible, please avoid the use of passive language and self-citation. Abstracts should be no longer than 200 words.

    Teaching Cases

    Cases should be non-fiction and written in past tense where appropriate. All cases should include an Instructor’s Note with the following elements:

    • 150-200 word abstract of the case
    • Optimal courses and levels for which the case is appropriate
    • Related theory / linkages to the academic literature
    • Teaching approach recommendations
    • At least 3 student discussion questions and corresponding 1 paragraph “exemplar” answers.
    • Statement of the research method used to prepare the case including the author(s) relationship to the case subject (if any). Please disclose if any substantive changes were made to protect confidentiality (names, locations, etc.)
    • Epilogue of the outcome of the decision or any relevant follow up information (if appropriate)
    • For peer review purposes please be sure to keep the case and corresponding instructor’s note “blind”
    • All Instructor's notes will be published on the journal's website as supplemental materials. Please be sure to see below for information on submitting supplemental materials (note: the instructor's note should be uploaded in the submission system as a separate supplemental file and not as part of the manuscript file. Please be sure the instructor's note is submitted as a "blind" file ready for peer review.
    • The journal is especially interested in short cases (or caselets; ~750 words) that can be used as lecture supplements within a diverse array of classroom settings. All cases, regardless of length, should be accompanied with instructor's notes and supplemental materials.

    Learning Innovations


    Learning innovations should be theoretically grounded write-ups of entrepreneurship education tools, methods, pedagogies that are geared to facilitate entrepreneurial learning inside and outside the classroom. Manuscripts should include the following elements:

    • 150-200 word abstract
    • 4,000 – 6,000 words

      • What is the learning innovation?
      • What are the underlying entrepreneurship and learning theories?
      • For whom is the learning innovation intended?
      • What are the expected learning outcomes?
      • How does it work?
      • In what context(s) and with what population have you used the learning innovation?
      • What are your personal experiences with the learning innovation?
      • What worked well and what did not work well?
      • How can the learning innovation be applied in other contexts?
    • Note: Learning innovations can come in a variety of forms. The above questions are just suggested and not requisite. This category is broader than just experiential exercises.
    • For peer review purposes please be sure to not include any information that would allow the reviewers to identify authors and/or their respective institutions.

    Supplemental Materials

    This journal is able to host additional materials online (e.g. datasets, podcasts, videos, images etc) alongside the full-text of the article. For more information please refer to our guidelines on submitting supplementary files

    Manuscript Submission

    As part of the submission process you will be required to warrant that you are submitting your original work, that you have the rights in the work, that you are submitting the work for first publication in the Journal and that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere and has not already been published elsewhere, and that you have obtained and can supply all necessary permissions for the reproduction of any copyright works not owned by you.

    The SAGE Author Gateway has some general advice and on how to get published, plus links to further resources. When writing up your paper, think about how you can make it discoverable. The title, keywords and abstract are key to ensuring readers find your article through search engines such as Google. For information and guidance on how best to title your article, write your abstract and select your keywords, have a look at this page on the Gateway: How to Help Readers Find Your Article Online

    Peer Review Process

    All manuscripts are double blind peer-reviewed so please ensure all submissions do not contain identifying information. Submitted manuscripts must not be concurrently under review at other publication outlets or previously published in another journal. Only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of EE&P will be reviewed.

    As part of the submission process you will be asked to provide the names of 3 peers who could be called upon to review your manuscript. Recommended reviewers should be experts in their fields and should be able to provide an objective assessment of the manuscript. Please be aware of any conflicts of interest when recommending reviewers. Examples of conflicts of interest include (but are not limited to) the below:

    • The reviewer should have no prior knowledge of your submission
    • The reviewer should not have recently collaborated with any of the authors
    • Reviewer nominees from the same institution as any of the authors are not permitted

    You will also be able to nominate peers who you do not wish to review your manuscript (opposed reviewers), should you believe a conflict of interest exist.

    Please note that the Editors are not obliged to invite/reject any recommended/opposed reviewers to assess your manuscript.

    Formatting and File Requirements

    Please prepare the manuscript in accordance with the latest edition of the APA Publication Manual. View the APA guidelines to ensure your manuscript conforms to this reference style. Please check that you have left aligned (i.e., ragged right edge) all text, left no additional space after paragraphs, and indented all paragraphs. All submissions should be in MS Word or RTF format using Times New Roman font, 12-point, double-spaced throughout, in a format that fits U.S. standard business size paper (8 ½” X 11”). Your title page should be uploaded as independent from your blind submission file.

    Article Types and Word Counts

    Each section of the journal has a target word count range inclusive of references. Figures and tables should be assumed to equate to 200 words each. The ranges for each section are below and serve only as a general guideline. Manuscripts significantly longer or shorter may still be considered at the discretion of the editor, and there is no limit on the number of references one may include.

    • Research Articles: 6,000 – 9,000 words
    • Cases and caselets from 750-5,000 words, excluding instructor’s note word counts, are welcomed
    • Learning Innovation: 4,000 – 6,000 words

    Tables and Figures

    Tables, figures, other graphic materials should be used for providing necessary information or clarification of central concepts. They should be clean and uncluttered and should appear on separate pages in accordance with the latest edition of the APA Publication Manual. If copyright permission is required for publishing this graphic material, it is the author's responsibility to obtain it at his/her cost.


    Papers should only be submitted for consideration once consent is given by all contributing authors. Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work contributed to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors.

    The list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship. This is all those who:

    (i) Made a substantial contribution to the concept or design of the work; or acquisition, analysis or interpretation of data,

    (ii) Drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content,

    (iii) Approved the version to be published,

    (iv) Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content.

    Authors should meet the conditions of all of the points above. When a large, multicentre group has conducted the work, the group should identify the individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript. These individuals should fully meet the criteria for authorship.
    Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group alone does not constitute authorship, although all contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the Acknowledgments section. Please refer to the APA Handbook authorship guidelines for more information on authorship.


    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

    The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

    If you do not already have an ORCID iD please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.

    Publishing Policies

    Publication Ethics

    SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway


    EE&P and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked with duplication-checking software. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarised other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author's institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.

    Prior Publication

    If material has been previously published it is not generally acceptable for publication in a SAGE journal. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be considered for publication. Please refer to the guidance on the SAGE Author Gateway or if in doubt, contact the Editor at the address given below.
