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.
In 2019, across six key JCR scales (total citations, two-year impact factor, five-year impact factor, immediacy index, Eigenfactor score, article influence score), SEJ is 14th out of 226 in the Management category. SEJ is 14th out of 152 in the Business category.
In the most recent Journal Citation Report (released in June 2020), SEJ had a two-year impact factor of 6.200. SEJ has a five-year impact factor of 6.128.
In the last five years (2015 through 2019), SEJ received 1,739 original submissions from scholars based in 74 countries.

Special Issue - Open Call: Environmental Change, Strategic Entrepreneurial Action, and Success
The strategic role of environmental change remains under-emphasized and under-theorized in contemporary entrepreneurship and strategy research. In this Special Issue, we hope to stimulate, connect, and extend research of this kind to help make research on “Environmental Change, Strategic Entrepreneurial Action, and Success” an integrated and growing part of the core of entrepreneurship scholarship. Interested authors should read the Full Call and submit their research from August 1, 2021 to September 1, 2021.
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.
