The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, founded in 2007, is targeted at publishing the most influential managerially-oriented entrepreneurship research in the world. It is a research journal that publishes original work recommended by a developmental, double-blind review process conducted by peer scholars. Strategic entrepreneurship involves innovation and subsequent changes which add value to society and which change societal life in ways that have significant, sustainable, and durable consequences.
The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal periodically advertises a call for future Special Issue (SI) proposals, which then go through a careful process of evaluation and development. Additionally, the publication and proposals of SIs have long lead times, and as a result, we are unable to consider SI submission outside the aforementioned process.

In 2020, across six key JCR scales (total citations, two-year impact factor, five-year impact factor, immediacy index, Eigenfactor score, article influence score), SEJ is 15th out of 226 in the Management category. SEJ is 15th out of 153 in the Business category.
In the most recent Journal Citation Report (released in June 2021), SEJ had a two-year impact factor of 9.289. SEJ has a five-year impact factor of 10.636.
In the last five years (2015 through 2019), SEJ received 1,739 original submissions from scholars based in 74 countries.
Beware of Forged Acceptance Letters
The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal does not charge an acceptance fee for papers. Any letter that appears to be from a Co-Editor of an SMS journal promising a manuscript's acceptance in exchange for money has been forged. All legitimate correspondence related to the review and acceptance of the paper will reference the manuscript number assigned by the submission system, ScholarOne.
