6EMESconf - Publishing opportunities for authors

EMES has teamed up with relevant publications in the fields related to social enterprise to offer publishing outlets to authors presenting completed conference papers at the Conference. In addition to ongoing submission opportunities, conference papers will have the option of being fast-tracked for selection in the publications included below; in some cases, journal editor-in-chiefs are considering the possibility of publishing special issues as well.




The Journal of Entrepreneurial and Organizational Diversity (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.

Although JEOD has an ongoing open manuscript submission policy, the editors will be selecting papers presented during the conference to try and create a special issue. Should your paper be selected, you will be notified via email. For more information please contact Simone Poledrini, University of Perugia (Italy) at simone.poledrini_at_unipg.it.

Nonprofit Policy Forum



The mission of Nonprofit Policy Forum (NPF) is to serve as an international journal that publishes original research and analysis on public policy issues and the public policy process critical to the work of nonprofit organizations. NPF provides a forum and an authoritative and accessible source of information for scholars, leaders, and policy-makers worldwide. The intent of NPF is to help policymakers design more effective policy, stimulate greater public involvement and support, promote more favorable policies, and thereby increase the contribution that nonprofits make in addressing social, economic and environmental problems and enhancing democratic practice.

Social Enterprise Journal



Social Enterprise Journal (SEJ) has been a trail blazer in the development of our field, being the first journal to focus specifically on this aspect on entrepreneurial activity. It continues to expand its influential position in the establishment and advancement of the field by encouraging interdisciplinary and critical studies of social enterprise. SEJ supports this advancement by deepening our understanding of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship. We invite scholars and practitioners to examine the phenomena of social enterprise and present their research work to SEJ.

The editorial team has consciously chosen to open the door wide to all scholars from a range of disciplines publishing social enterprise research. The aim is to encourage knowledge sharing across disciplines to generate stronger research overall in the field. The SEJ welcomes papers from EMES 2017 to submit to a special EMES conference issue like the one published in 2013 after the 4th EMES conference.

Voluntary Sector Review



Voluntary Sector Review is published by Policy Press in association with the Voluntary Sector Studies Network (VSSN). It publishes accessible, high-quality peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of the voluntary, community, civil society and third sectors. A unique feature of the Voluntary Sector Review is the combination of papers aimed at academic, policy and practice audiences. This is designed to ensure that the results of the latest academic research are made available to the widest possible audience and are grounded in a close engagement with both policy and practical issues.

The Voluntary Sector Review is an explicitly interdisciplinary and international journal – the first to be European based. We welcome contributions from authors from all disciplines and all countries. We are interested in all aspects of voluntary, community, civil society and third-sector activity.

If you are a participant of the 6th EMES Conference and would like to submit your manuscript, please contact the editor, Rob Macmillan, at the University of Birmingham, UK (r.macmillan@bham.ac.uk)
