Journal of Entrepreneurial and Organizational Diversity (JEOD)

The Journal of Entrepreneurial and Organizational Diversity (JEOD) is now accepting manuscript submissions. JEOD focuses on the subject of entrepreneurial diversity, encompassing therefore all enterprise types and models. JEOD seeks to serve as the principal outlet for theoretical and empirical research on the entrepreneurial phenomenon in its myriad of forms. We place strong emphasis on the determinants and the effects of entrepreneurial diversity as well as on comparisons between different types of enterprise and their aims. Further, JEOD welcomes research on diversity within particular forms (e.g., different ownership and governance models, companies organized to take social responsibility into account, entrepreneurial networks) as well as studies on new forms, such as social enterprises. Statistical and econometric models and applications are also welcome.

  • The role of entrepreneurial diversity and its influence on the functioning of economies, on market competition, employment and on other economic and social dimensions, such as social capital, social innovation, institutional context, and social and economic development;
  • Comparisons among different types of enterprise and across different national contexts along several dimensions, including economic and social impact, competitiveness, cohesion, and job creation;
  • Analysis of national and international regulations and whether they are coherent with the principles governing different types of enterprise;
  • Analysis of different entrepreneurial models and their evolution on a national, regional, and sectoral level;
