The Southern African Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management (SAJESBM) is a peer-reviewed journal that is aimed at providing practical guidance and empirical evidence to researchers and practitioners specialising in the entrepreneurial and business management fields. The journal provides a communication forum to advance entrepreneurship, innovation, small business management and family business theory, as well as the application thereof in practice. Its aim is the improvement and further development of these fields and it is designed to appeal to both practitioners and academics.
A double-blind review process is followed, supported by a national and international Editorial Review Board. The mission of the SAJESBM is to publish empirical and theoretical contributions in the form of fieldwork, laboratory, case-studies, qualitative, quantitative, or conceptual papers. The significance of the findings is applied as relevant and functional in the entrepreneurial and management fields. It is envisaged that the SAJESBM will serve as a platform in which information central to the concerns of practitioners and academics is presented. In this way research not only grows out of the concerns of practitioners, but simultaneously shapes theories for future practice.
