Social Enterprise Journal is published in association with Social Enterprise London
Social enterprise is a powerful global concept which describes those businesses with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally re-invested for that purpose in businesses or in the community. SEJ is the first journal to focus specifically on this aspect of entrepreneurial activity. Social enterprises have not been the subject of rigorous research to determine the current practices and needs of managers within this developing area. It is also debatable whether we have a robust and agreed ‘map’ of the sector. The SEJ seeks to address this void by inviting scholars and practitioners to present their theories and frameworks for understanding social enterprise, and invites research that examines a range of topics related to this developing sector of the social economy.
The editorial team has consciously chosen not to restrict the subject areas for this journal, but to open the door wide to all scholars publishing in social enterprise. The SEJ will accept both rigorous research papers and shorter case study submissions that address key aspects. Issues of importance, which can be addressed at a global, national and/or individual social enterprise level, include but are not limited to:
Social enterprise is increasingly recognized for its economic, social and environmental contribution to society. A wealth of research is emerging in this field. This journal will provide a dedicated outlet for this research and a forum for debate.
Our goal is to contribute to the development of knowledge in the field and to provide information of value to policy makers and practitioners.
