Author Guidelines


For the most current submission guidelines, please click on the link provided here or visit the Baylor Business website at http://business.baylor.edu, click on the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, and follow the links provided.

Authors will be required to assign copyright in their paper to Baylor University. Copyright assignment is a condition of publication and papers will not be passed to the publisher for production unless copyright has been assigned.  (Papers subject to government or Crown copyright are exempt from this requirement).  To assist authors an appropriate copyright assignment form will be supplied by the editorial office.

 NEW: Online production tracking is now available for your article through Wiley-Blackwell’s Author Services.

Author Services enables authors to track their article -- once it has been accepted -- through the production process to publication online and in print. Authors can check the status of their articles online and choose to receive automated e-mails at key stages of production so they do not need to contact the Production Editor to check on progress. Visit http://authorservices.com/bauthor for more details on online production tracking and for a wealth of resources including FAQs and tips on article preparation, submission, and more.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/etp. Full instructions and support are available on the site and a user ID and password can be obtained on the first visit. Support can be contacted by phone (+1 434 817 2040 ext. 167) or at http://mcv3support.custhelp.com


There are three preferred formats for digital artwork submission: Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), Portable Document Format (PDF), and Tagged Image Format (TIFF). We suggest that line art be saved as EPS files. Alternately, these may be saved as PDF files at 600 dots per inch (dpi) or better at final size. Tone art, or photographic images, should be saved as TIFF files with a resolution of 300 dpi at final size. For combination figures, or artwork that contains both photographs and labeling, we recommend saving figures as EPS files, or as PDF files with a resolution of 600 dpi or better at final size. More detailed information on the submission of electronic artwork can be found at http://authorservices.com/bauthor/illustration.asp

Entreprenurship Theory and Practice is covered by Wiley-Blackwell's EarlyView service. EarlyView articles are complete full-text articles published online in advance of their publication in a printed issue. Articles are therefore available as soon as they are ready, rather than having to wait for the next scheduled print issue. EarlyView articles are complete and final. They have been fully reviewed, revised and edited for publication, and the authors’ final corrections have been incorporated. Because they are in final form, no changes can be made after online publication. The nature of EarlyView articles means that they do not yet have volume, issue or page numbers, so EarlyView articles cannot be cited in the traditional way. They are therefore given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the article to be cited and tracked before it is allocated to an issue. After print publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.
