The process for submitting manuscripts is OPEN all year long.






Please find attached below a title page, paper template, an example of a reference list, a declaration for authors, and the review forms (general and statistical) with the review criteria to gain more knowledge on how we review the papers:

Requirements for the Submission of manuscripts with all necessary templates and documents are listed below.


Manuscripts should be written entirely in English and adjusted to the PAPER TEMPLATE. Enhancing the structure and content guidelines for research papers (which can be quantitative or qualitative) within the realm of entrepreneurship, management, or innovation can significantly elevate the quality and impact of the manuscripts submitted for review. The proposed structure aims to provide a more detailed and nuanced framework for authors, ensuring that each section of the manuscript meets the highest standards of academic rigor and contributes to the advancement of knowledge within the field. Below, the general description of each section is outlined, emphasizing the importance of clarity, depth, and scholarly integrity.

  • Title

    The title should succinctly encapsulate the essence of the research while remaining engaging and informative. It must strike a balance between brevity and descriptiveness, providing a clear indication of the study's focus and scope.


    The abstract should offer a comprehensive summary of the paper, including the purpose, methodology, findings, implications for theory and practice, and originality/value. It should be between 250-350 words. Additionally, 5-10 keywords that reflect the core themes and concepts of the paper must be included to facilitate indexing and retrieval.

    Results (Results and Discussion sections can be combined)

    The results should be presented in a clear, logical manner, using tables and figures effectively. The presentation must be neutral, allowing data to speak for itself, and comparisons with existing literature should be made where relevant.

    • Ensure results are presented in alignment with the research questions or hypotheses.
    • Discuss how tables and figures support the findings.
    • Maintain an unbiased tone throughout the presentation of results.


    This section should interpret the findings in the context of the research questions or hypotheses, the literature review, and the study's objectives. It should outline the implications of the findings for theory and practice.

    • Provide a comprehensive analysis of how the findings relate to the original research questions and hypotheses.
    • Compare and contrast the study's outcomes with those of previous research, highlighting both concordances and discrepancies.
    • Offer theoretical and practical implications of the research findings, supported by the literature.


    Conclusions should succinctly summarize the key findings and their relevance to the research questions and hypotheses. This section should also outline the study's limitations, implications for practice, and suggest directions for future research.

    • Ensure conclusions are directly tied to the research objectives and questions.
    • Discuss the broader implications of the findings for both theory and practice.
    • Clearly outline potential avenues for further research and acknowledge limitations.

    Additional Sections

    • Acknowledgments: Acknowledge any support received during the research.
    • References: Ensure all citations are accurately presented in APA Style 6th edition, including DOIs, for ease of access to cited works.
    • Biographical Notes: Provide a brief professional biography of each author.
    • Author Contributions: Detail the specific contributions of each author to the manuscript (see the Declaration for authors).
    • Conflicts of Interest: Disclose any potential conflicts of interest (see the Declaration for authors).
    • Citation: Provide a recommended citation for the manuscript to facilitate proper referencing (will be added by the Editors).

Manuscripts will not be reviewed by or be sent to any other publication during the period of review.

Manuscripts report the elaboration of theory or empirical results that have not been published previously.

Manuscripts should be submitted in Word, Times New Roman 12pt. font without columns, single-spaced. It should typically be no less than 8,000 words up to 12,000 words (excluding tables, figures, and references).

Manuscripts should be submitted in the American Psychological Association Publication Guide (APA) 6th edition. Guidelines for citation can be found above. All the references must have a DOI number. Use the free DOI lookup here: Put them in the format as follows (e.g.,

We welcome all empirical methods including, but not limited to, qualitative, quantitative, field work, meta-analysis, and the combination of methods or mixed methods.

Manuscripts should include the title, author’s name, and surname on the first page only (use the TITLE PAGE template) for blind review purposes. Do not write the name, surname, and author’s note in the rest of the paper. ORCID ID and account number are required at If author(s) could provide their ORCID number, this would allow linking the paper with their ORCID profile, and ultimately get higher visibility for the journal and authors. Biographical notes are also required (included in the TITLE PAGE).

Figures and tables should be delivered in the text and should be numbered consecutively (Table 1, Figure 2).

JEL codes are required:

Authors are required to submit a DECLARATION FOR AUTHORS. Authors are required to present the Disclosure statement: No potential conflict of interest was reported by the authors or Potential conflict of interest was reported by the authors with the explanation.

Before submitting a manuscript, each author should read the EASE Guidelines for Authors of Scientific Articles to be Published in English.


Reviewing procedure

To ensure a thorough evaluation of each submitted publication, JEMI appoints at least two independent reviewers through a double-blind peer review process in which the authors and reviewers remain anonymous to each other. The reviewers provide written feedback on the manuscript, ultimately leading to an unequivocal conclusion as to whether the article is accepted for publication, needs a revision (major or minor), or is rejected based on merit, reviewers' and editors' comments.

Upon receipt of the manuscript, the editors acknowledge the safe receipt of the manuscript and inform the authors about the desk rejection (within one to two weeks) or the submission of the manuscript for double-blind peer review. After the initial assessment, the manuscript is sent for review, which takes approximately 6-12 weeks (the availability of the reviewers is a determining factor).

The reviewers receive the manuscript in PDF format, with the metadata removed, and use review forms available on the JEMI website. According to the paper template, each manuscript should include an abstract, a prominent introduction, literature review, methodology, results, discussion, and conclusion sections.

After receiving two or three anonymous reviews, the authors are asked to revise the manuscript within the set time, usually 4 weeks, and provide detailed responses to each reviewer regarding what was revised and how. The changes are marked in a different color.

The reviewers/editors evaluate the revisions made by the authors and decide whether they are at an acceptable level. If not, a second round of revisions follows.

After the final round of reviews, the substantive version of the manuscript is accepted by the editors, with the understanding that the JEMI editors may provide additional formal comments to the final version of the manuscript.


Ghostwriting and guest authorship

It's essential for scientific publications to be built on a foundation of reliability. As readers, we should be confident that the authors are transparent, honest, and present their work in a reliable manner. This holds true whether they are the direct authors or if they had the support of a specialized entity, whether it be a natural or legal person. The authors' ethical behavior and editorial standards should be evident in the information provided about the subjects that contributed to the publication, including their merit, material, financial, and other contributions. It's a reflection of not only decency but also social responsibility.

It's important to expose cases of "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship." "Ghostwriting" happens when someone makes a significant contribution to the publication but their role is not revealed, either as one of the authors or in the acknowledgments included in the article. "Guest authorship" or "honorary authorship" occurs when the author's contribution is negligible, or when the contribution never occurred, yet they are still listed as the author/co-author of the publication. Any discovered cases should be exposed, and the relevant entities (such as institutions employing the authors, scientific societies, and associations of scientific editors) should be informed.

To prevent "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship," editors require authors to submit a signed declaration on this matter.
