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.

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.
