The African Journal of Economics and Management Studies is soliciting high quality papers for a Special Issue that explores entrepreneurship and economic growth challenges confronting Africa.
Business and economics research has produced a body of evidence on the critical role of entrepreneurship in stimulating economic development in the industrialized countries. Despite such evidence, there is comparatively little research on the role of entrepreneurship in fostering economic change in African countries. There is a need for proper understanding and in-depth analysis of how entrepreneurship can engender economic development and structural change in Africa.
This Special Issue is seeking papers that deal with how entrepreneurship could be leveraged to address economic growth challenges in the African context. We are interested in contributions from various disciplinary perspectives that focus on entrepreneurship in Africa, including but not limited to:
• Theoretical and methodological approaches to entrepreneurship and economic growth
• Social entrepreneurship
• Social, cultural, and environmental determinants of entrepreneurship
• Public policy and entrepreneurial development
• Venture capital and entrepreneurship
• Entrepreneurship and microenterprises
• Evolution of entrepreneurship
You are invited to submit papers on these and related issues not later than October 30, 2012. All papers will be subject to a rigorous peer review. Reviewers’ comments will be sent to authors between January and March 2013. Publication of this special issue is scheduled for 2014.
Papers should be between 6,000-7,000 words. Authors should follow AJEMS author guidelines at www.emeraldinsight.com/ajems.htm
