The Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Economies is a peer-reviewed Journal, published two times a year. The aim of the Journal is to provide an intellectual and research platform for the dissemination of a range of critical entrepreneurship, innovation, business and economic development issues of relevance to emerging economies. The Journal tracks, documents, sheds light on, and critiques developments, ideas, and actions associated with the creation and growth of new ventures (business, social, project- based and public), public policy that facilitates or restrains such activities, and institutions that promote or inhibit innovative outcomes in the economy and societies of these nations.
The Journal promotes the interests of researchers in the field of business management, entrepreneurship and innovation, economics, sociology and related social science disciplines which impact on business management and economic development agendas.
The Journal provides a forum for the publication of conceptual and empirical research, critical case studies and accounts of creative and reflective practice focusing on entrepreneurship and innovation in emerging countries and business or management issues.

Manuscript Submission Guidelines for Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Economies
The Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Economies is hosted on SAGE Peer Review, a web based online submission and peer review system. Please read the Manuscript Submission guidelines below, and then visit https://peerreview.sagepub.com/eie to login and submit your article online.
- A softcopy of the manuscript should be submitted in English, with MS Word format and double-spaced with adequate margins on all sides. It should be accompanied by a brief bio-sketch of all the authors and should be electronically submitted at https://peerreview.sagepub.com/eie. Every manuscript must include an abstract and four to six key words.
- The full length paper should not exceed 8000 words. The abstract of the paper should not be more than 250 words with four to six keywords.
- Chapter 2 in the APA Publication Manual offers detailed instructions on formatting the manuscript. We request all contributors to be familiar with it. A guide to preparation for manuscripts according to APA style can be found here http://www.ed.psu.edu/educ/epcse/rhs/apa-6th-edition-guidelines
- The manuscript should be accompanied by a cover page comprising title of the article, authors’ name and affiliation, mailing address, phone, fax and email address. In case of multiple authors, the cover page should also indicate the author to whom correspondence should be addressed. This information should be centred in the middle of the title page. The name of the author(s) should not appear anywhere else in the manuscript. Contributors must provide their affiliations and complete postal and e-mail addresses with their articles.
- The manuscript should have a margin of 1 inch on all four sides (with the margin on the left side flush at 1 inch, and the right margin “ragged”), and the entire paper should be set to double-space. The first line of each paragraph should be indented one-half inch.
- EIE requires that all submissions use Times New Roman font, 12 pt.
- British spellings throughout (‘labour’ nor ‘labor’, ‘centre’ not ‘center’); universal ‘s’ in ‘-ise’ and ‘-isation’ words.
- Single quotes throughout; double quotes used within single quotes. Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed.
- Use ‘19th century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in figures. However, for exact measurements, use only figures (3 km, 9 per cent, not %). Use thousands and millions, not lakhs and crores. Avoid saying ‘recently’ but rather give the year.
- Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently. Use italics only for the first time the word or phrase is used. Do not italicize abbreviations like etc., et al., and ibid. An exception is sic, which should be italicized and placed in square brackets.
- Quotations of 45 words or more should be indented from the text with a line space above and below.
- The APA Style Manual provides guidelines about headings in the text. While some papers have three level headings, others may have two.
- The following conventions should be used when using hyphens, en dash, em dash:
- Use hyphens (-) to create compound words and to break a word across lines.
- Use an en dash (–) for a range of numbers, e.g., 75–80.
- Use an em dash (—) to mark an explanatory element in a sentence.
- Endnotes should be used instead of footnotes, and should be numbered serially using standard figures (e.g., 1, 2, 3). The notes should be linked to the note cues within the text. Notes should contain more than a citation of a work. Use notes to elaborate an issue that is already made in the main text.
- Tables, figures and charts presented in the text should be in black and white only. They must meet APA guidelines. Wherever necessary, the title should be indicated at the top and sources should be at the bottom. They should be serially numbered and this number should match with the references to them cited in the text. The tables, figures and charts need not appear in separate document files. The tables and figures mentioned in the text should appear near/after they are referred. Source for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.
- All photographs and scanned images should have a resolution of minimum 300 dpi/1500 pixels and their format should be TIFF or JPEG. Due permissions should be taken for copyright protected photographs/images. Even for photographs/images available in the public domain, it should be clearly ascertained whether or not their reproduction requires permission for purposes of publishing (which is a profit-making endeavour). All photographs/scanned images should be provided separately in a folder along with the main article.
References should be given separately at the end of the article and the entries should be arranged alphabetically. The word ‘References’ should appear as a first-level heading. The list should include only the works the author(s) has cited.
Inverted names: In each reference, authors’ names are inverted (last name first) for all authors (first, second or subsequent ones); give the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work unless the work has more than six authors. If the work has more than six authors, list the first six authors and then use et al. after the sixth author’s name.
Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work.
Chronological listing: If you have more than one work by the same author(s), list them in order by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.
Sentence case: In references, follow sentence case for the titles of papers, books, articles, etc. For example, APA guide to preparing manuscripts for journal publication
