Aims and scope

Journal of Entrepreneurship and Public Policy (JEPP) publishes four issues per year and welcomes:

  • A limited number of carefully and accurately executed replication studies.

In general, JEPP seeks high-quality articles that say something interesting about the relationships among public policy and entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship and economic development, or all three areas.
