Dr. Nivedita Agarwal is Editor-In-Chief of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing (IJEV). She is editing the IJEV together with Terrence Brown, KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden).
The journal name relates to Harvard Business School’s understanding of “The Entrepreneurial Venture” (Sahlmann/Stevenson/Roberts/Bhidé), the concept of entrepreneurship not only limited to new ventures/start-ups, but further understood as the concentration of opportunity/growth/value creation regardless of company size, age or kind. Hence, IJEV addresses organisational processes surrounding these concepts: from an idea to an innovation. To bridge the gap between innovation and entrepreneurship research, IJEV emphasises implications of this new knowledge for researchers, managers, public policy makers and business educators.
Furthermore, IJEV has been established to be an effective channel of communication between researchers, managers and policy makers, as well as others concerned with the complex and dynamic role of opportunity, growth and value creation in society. The international dimension is emphasised in acknowledgement of the growing globalisation of business and management and in order to overcome cultural and national barriers.
IJEV is indexed by the Emerging Sources Citation Index ESCI (Clarivate), Scopus (Elsevier), Academic OneFile (Gale), cnpLINKer (CNPIEC), Business Collection (Gale), Google Scholar sowie bei Inspec (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
