Please note that the journal takes issues of plagiarism or other types of academic misconduct very seriously. Submitted articles may therefore be checked for plagiarism if suspicion of malpractice is evoked, and authors who have been found to plagiarize will have their articles rejected, or – if already published – retracted.

This section publishes papers that are sophisticated in the use of theories, empirical materials, and methods; well-positioned in regards to contemporary scholarly debates on cultural entrepreneurship; and characterized by topical relevance. These papers are subjected to scholarly double blind peer-review.

Art works

This section publishes different types of representations of art and cultural entrepreneurship, such as short stories, essays, poetry, music, or visual art, intended to reflect, problematize and destabilize beliefs and values attached to entrepreneurial initiatives in the cultural sector. These works are subjected to artistic single blind peer-review, meaning the reviewers are anonymous while the names of the originators are known.


This section opens up a space for critical reviews on both academic and artistic works. To energize both scholarly debates and entrepreneurial initiative in the cultural sector, the section not only welcomes book reviews but also reviews on journal articles, chapters in anthologies, conference proceedings, etc., and reviews on expressions of cultural entrepreneurship, such as concerts, theatrical works, paintings, and literary works. These reviews are not subjected to double blind peer-review, instead they are developed in close collaboration with the review editor.
