SAGE Publishing welcomes the Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice to its business journals portfolio

March 20, 2018

SAGE Publishing today announces that it has begun to publish Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice (ETP). Interdisciplinary in focus, ETP’s mission is to publish original conceptual and empirical research that that develops, tests, or extends theory relating to entrepreneurship.

“Founded as the American Journal of Small Business in 1976, the journal benefitted significantly from its ownership transfer to Baylor University in 1988 and its name change to Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice,” said D. Ray Bagby, former Executive Editor. “The increase in quality was demonstrated by its inclusion on the Financial Times list of top business journals and by the continuously increasing impact factor (from 1.537 in 2005 to 4.916 in 2016).The purchase of the journal by SAGE Publishing begins a new and exciting chapter in the history of the journal — one that I anticipate will lead to even more improvement and accomplishments in support of a growing and vibrant field of study.”

ETP publishes research covering a variety of topics, ranging from small business management to research methods in the field of entrepreneurship. Its editorial board includes representatives from all areas of entrepreneurship study, and submissions are reviewed by referees from around the world.

“Our rich history in publishing research methods and business and management resources makes SAGE Publishing the perfect home for Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice and its editorial team,” commented Bob Howard, Senior Vice President of Global Journals, SAGE Publishing. “We are delighted to add a journal that covers such an important and evolving field of study to our journals portfolio.”
