eISSN: 1544-9106

Aims and scope

The CASE Journal (TCJ) invites submission of the following:

  • Cases: TCJ publishes factual teaching cases spanning the full spectrum of business and management disciplines. 
  • Compact cases: These cases must be factual and are limited to 500-1,000 words. The goal is to make cases accessible, readable and more engaging for students. 
  • New forms: TCJ is interested in exploring new types of cases that go beyond the conventional models. Cases utilising innovative technology or twists on traditional formats are welcome. 
  • Articles and conceptual papers: TCJ also invites submissions of articles relating to case teaching, case writing, case reviewing, and similar topics. Conceptual papers and papers reporting original research as well as the applied implications of others’ research in terms of case teaching, research, and instruction are welcome, as are creative learning, research and writing methods that have been tested in the classroom or in practice, including critical incidents and industry or technical notes.

All cases must be accompanied by an Instructor’s Manual providing the target audience, relevant theoretical concepts or models, research methodology, discussion questions, and suggested responses and teaching strategies.
