CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Description

Founded in 2001, the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat – Review of Entrepreneurship is the journal of the Académie de l’Entrepreneuriat et de l’Innovation (Academy of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, AEI). Over the past twenty years, the journal has been publishing high-quality articles and has become well regarded within the management science community. It was ranked second in the 2019 FNEGE index (Fondation Nationale pour l’Enseignement de la Gestion des Entreprises – The French Foundation for Management Education). For the 2020–2023 term, the President of the AEI, Catherine Léger-Jarniou (Professor Emeritus, Université Paris-Dauphine), is in charge of publication management for the journal. Since June 2020, the journal has been published by the AEI, meaning authors of published articles assign their copyright to the AEI. This is finalized on publication of the article in the journal. This overlap guarantees coherence and communication between the journal and the AEI, with the common objective of disseminating high-quality research in the field of entrepreneurship.

The management of the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat is divided into several circles. Managerial terms last for three years, renewable once.


Editorial line

The journal is published as an academic review since 2001, the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship is a online peer review which belongs and relies on the Académie de l’Entrepreneuriat et de l’Innovation. The journal is independent, exclusively online and bilingual (French and English). In 20 years, the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship has reached high quality standard and is reference academic journal in management and business science. It is ranked 2 in the FNEGE (2019).


The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship is devoted to research in entrepreneurship, innovation and SMEs and aims to develop dialogues and critical reflections on the state of the art concerning innovative practices through players, contexts and management tools dedicated to entrepreneurship. The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship is dedicated to scholars, teachers, students in management sciences and business but also to a broader audience like managers, entrepreneurs, public administrations, anyone interested by the evolution of the knowledge in entrepreneurship.

Articles published in the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship need to fit with the expectation of scientific rigor concerning the theoretical background and the methodology. Results need to be realistic and embedded in the nowadays world’s topic. Transdisciplinary topics and multicontext research setting concerning the entrepreneurial phenomenon and innovation in small and medium size firms, are naturally welcome, related to human and social sciences. Thematic research groups related to the “Académie de l’Entrepreneuriat et de l’Innovation” (please see the website: http://entrepreneuriat.com) are considered as a basis. Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat accepts conceptual, empirical articles and literature reviews. The methodology used by authors can be qualitative and quantitative, it is what makes management science original and relevant. Papers need to make significant contributions to the current literature on entrepreneurship. The Review of Entrepreneurship/Revue de l'Entrepreneuriat publishes two types of format: the academic article and the research note (a short format focusing on an emerging theme - details of this format are given in the instructions to authors).

The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship has developed an ethical charter accessible through the website. The submission process and review process are clearly detailed and accessible through the website also. The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship has the following corporate governance including the Director of Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship who is the President of the Académie de l’Entrepreneuriat et de l’Innovation, and is managed by the Editors in Chief, the Associate Editors, the Scientific Committee and the Peer Reviewers Committee.

The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship accepts both publications in French and English languages. In this perspective of international openness, contributions from foreign researchers as well as comparative studies can find their place there. Among its authors are many colleagues with international reputation and contributions who have a high citation rate. Special issues conducted by guest editors are particularly appreciated. After validation of the themes and the teams of editors invited by the committee of associate editors of Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship, these issues are intended to offer a homogeneous editorial project, on topical themes within the academic world and in connection with the concerns of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship practitioners. As such, we encourage English-language special issues led by teams of guest editors from different nationalities, and / or associated with international scientific events. The journal launches an annual call for proposals for special issues, the precise criteria of which are defined on the journal’s website. The aim is to place the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat/Review of Entrepreneurship among the most active journals internationally, on emerging themes and to increase its reach and distribution, via digital tools.

Organization and management

1. Editors-in-chief (1st circle of management): Bérangère Deschamps (associate professor, Université Grenoble-Alpes, France) and Céline Barrédy (associate professor, Université de Paris-Nanterre, France).

The editors-in-chief represent the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat before institutions and partners. They are responsible for managing submissions: they carry out the desk reject process, assign submissions to peer reviewers, follow up and manage the flow of submissions, arbitrate in case of disagreements between reviewers, and write editorials for the journal. They are also responsible for managing and arranging the publication of issues, and preside over the committee of associate editors. In collaboration with the AEI, they work to develop the distribution process of the journal’s articles.

  • # Subeditor: Hedi Yezza (associate professor, Sherbrooke University, Canada)

Editors-in-chief work closely with a subeditor, who is in charge of the follow-up of the process (from submission to publication) and maintains a link between the editors-in-chief, associate editors, authors, and peer reviewers. The subeditor is also in charge of communication for the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat, especially on social media, and deals with the CAIRN Manuscript Manager platform, in coordination with the AEI.


2. Editorial committee – Associate editors (2nd circle of management)

The editors-in-chief assemble a team of colleagues who are committed to the distribution and visibility of the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat. The team helps define the journal’s strategy and develop its policies (especially by formalizing processes). Associate editors are in charge of the follow-up of peer review for their different fields, and may suggest editorial decisions to the editors-in-chief.

They make decisions about editorial policy, international outreach, bilingual positioning, special issue topics, methods of publication, how to increase the journal’s impact factor, and how to maintain, or improve on, its position in journal rankings. The associate editors for the 2020–2023 term are:

  • • Andrea Calabrò, Professor, IPAG Business School, France
  • • Benoît Demil, Professor, Université de Lille, France
  • • Cécile Fonrouge, Professor, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, Canada
  • • Anaïs Hamelin, Professor, Université de Strasbourg, France
  • • Martine Hlady-Rispal, Professor, Université de Limoges, France
  • • Nabil Khelil, Professor, Université de Caen, France
  • • Vincent Lefebvre, Associate Professor with accreditation to supervise research, Audencia Nantes, France
  • • Nathalie Schieb-Bienfait, Associate Professor, Université de Nantes, France

These circles of management are interconnected, in the sense that those involved in the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat may progress from one circle to another. Those who become editors-in-chief may have previously served on the committee of associate editors, whose members may have previously contributed to the journal in another way, in many cases as peer reviewers.

  • # Senior editor

The senior editor’s role is to oversee the handover between two teams of editors-in-chief. This individual is therefore a member of the outgoing team when the journal’s editor-in-chief team is renewed. Didier Chabaud (Professor, IAE Paris and Université Panthéon-Sorbonne, France) is senior editor for the 2020–2023 term.


3. Academic committee (3rd circle of management)

The academic committee comprises prominent, specialist researchers in entrepreneurship and ensures that the journal remains fully anchored in its field. One category of colleagues stands out in this circle: the honorary members, who have now retired, but have each significantly contributed to the development of the journal and the field of entrepreneurship.

Publication ethics and publication malpractice statement

All PUF journals follow policies and practices that reflect the current best principles of transparency and integrity (COPE).

Core paractives are available here : https://publicationethics.org/core-practices

Code of ethics

Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship

The aim of the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship is to disseminate original and high-quality research that offers one or multiple contributions to the area of entrepreneurship. This aim requires editors, peer reviewers, and authors to rigorously respect a code of conduct that guarantees the ethics of the articles published in the journal.

Scientific Quality of the Journal

The editorial board is responsible for all the contents published in the journal and seeks to ensure the scientific quality of the journal. It ensures a regular turnover in the composition of its board of reviewers and scientific committee as well as in its own membership with a view to guaranteeing professional rigor. It tracks and mentions the affiliations of the members of the editorial board, the international reading committee and the scientific committee on the website of the journal.

Freedom of expression and scientific debate

The editorial board selects the articles in an impartial manner. It particularly pays attention to articles that contribute to the scientific debate. Any article offering relevant criticism of an article published in the journal can be submitted. Authors have a right of reply to criticism of their article(s).

Relationship with the readers

The origin of the funding for the research presented in the journal is mentioned. The editorial board commits to answering reader complaints.

Relationship with the authors

Articles are selected purely based on their intellectual or scientific merit, without any discrimination on the ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, university affiliation or political opinion of the author. When making decisions, the editorial board takes into account all legal requirements in terms of slander, copyright violations and plagiarism. The procedure to submit an article to the journal is outlined in a document available on the website of the journal and updated regularly. Any costs associated to the publication of an article are mentioned explicitly in said document.

Authors must guarantee the transparency and originality of their research. As such, they must:

  • • follow the journal’s formatting requirements, as specified in the manuscript submission and evaluation guidelines;
  • • have not previously submitted the proposed research to another journal, and must not submit it to another journal at the same time as to the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship;
  • • not repeat in their article significant, previously published extracts from academic articles or book chapters of larger works (essential contribution(s), the exact same data set, substantial elements of a literature review article), and their article must not show significant similarities to these publications;
  • • appropriately acknowledge cited works, both in their exact form and in their fundamental content;
  • • name any authors who have made significant contributions to the writing of the submitted article. This means that all authors must be named, and conversely that authors who have not contributed must not be named. The order in which authors are acknowledged should result from a joint decision between all authors;
  • • respond diligently to reviewers’ and editors’ comments during the peer review process. Authors may be asked to provide their dataset so that its origins and authenticity can be verified;
  • • not plagiarize other research, especially through paraphrase or borrowing others’ ideas without acknowledging them;
  • • make all potential conflicts of interest known;
  • • inform the journal of any financing they have received for the submitted research;
  • • give permission for their article—if it is accepted—to be published on the Cairn platform and assign their copyright to the AEI, the publishing association of the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship;
  • • ensure that their publication does not cause harm to any third parties.

Relationship with the reviewers

The reviewers’ responsibilities are defined in a document available on the website of the journal and updated regularly. The editorial board guarantees the anonymity of the reviewers.

Commercial/political conflicts of interest

Articles are selected based on their academic interest to the readers and not on the commercial/political benefits they can bring to the journal. The editorial board ensures the journal’s independence vis-à-vis its publisher and its owner(s). If the journal contains advertisements, they are clearly marked as such

Actions that go against the ethics of the publication

The editorial board seeks to identify and prevent any action deemed to go against the ethics of the publication. It is committed to investigate any complaint made against the journal, according to the procedure described below. The author has a right of reply to a complaint. The editorial board should always be prepared to publish corrections, apologies or clarifications whenever they are called for.

Procedure followed in the event of a breach of ethics of the publication

Anyone can file a complaint for breach of ethics of the publication to the editorial board of the journal. The person filing the complaint must provide supporting elements. Any complaint is to be taken seriously by the editorial board and must be treated until conclusion. Any complaint will be handled, no matter its date of publication. The supporting elements submitted as part of a complaint must be kept and archived by the editorial board. Measures to could be implemented in the event of a complaint include:

  • • Interview with the author of the article, if the complaint stems from a misunderstanding of the code of ethics of the journal or the publication guidelines
  • • Written notification sent to the author, providing details about the alleged breach of ethics of the publication. This notification serves as a first warning.
  • • Written notification sent to the institution/organization where the author is employed
  • • Publication of an editorial in the journal, informing the readers about the procedure
  • • Withdrawal of the article from the journal and indexes where it might be featured
  • • Ban on any new articles written by the author, duration to be determined
  • • Refer to an outside organization with authority to deal with the complaint

Code of ethics applicable to reviewers of academic journals

Reviewers’ mission

Reviewers are selected based on their scientific and intellectual expertise. They are tasked with the evaluation of the manuscripts solely on their contents, without consideration for the ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, university affiliation or political opinion of the author. Judgments should be objective. Reviewers are required to flag all articles that are similar, to some degree, to the article submitted to the journal. Reviewers should point out relevant published work which is not yet cited.
The work of peer reviewers is crucial for ensuring the quality of articles published by the journal, and for helping authors to improve their research. A minimum of two specialists are assigned to each submitted article that enters the peer review process. Reviewers must:

  • • possess the necessary specialist skills and knowledge to review the article submitted to them;
  • • commit to returning the reviewed article within the deadline set by the editor, or decline the request for their expertise;
  • • respect the confidentiality of the work submitted to them for review and, in particular, ensure that they neither disclose nor use the contents of the work submitted for review;
  • • demonstrate objectivity in their evaluation and be attentive to their own potential methodological or theoretical bias;
  • • demonstrate empathy in their evaluation, in both the tone and form employed, as well as in substance.

Conflict of Interest

Editorial board members and reviewers must recuse themselves if there is a conflict of interest with an author or with the content of the manuscript to be reviewed. Furthermore, reviewers who know that they are not qualified to review a manuscript or that they will be unable to do so within a reasonable period of time are required to inform the editorial board of this fact and to recuse themselves.

Confidentiality

Manuscripts received for review are treated confidentially. No information about a manuscript submitted to a journal may be disclosed to anyone other than the author, potential reviewers, and in some cases the publisher. Reviewers will not keep or copy the manuscripts they receive for evaluation.

Data Use

The data presented in the submitted articles may not be used prior to publication in the research of an editorial board member or reviewer without the author’s express written consent.

All articles submitted to the journal are evaluated according to the following process:

The editors ensure that each article submitted to the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship corresponds to the field covered by the journal, is anonymous, and involves no plagiarism. They ensure that the article is reviewed honestly, seriously, with integrity, and anonymously by at least two peer reviewers. This involves:

  • • undertaking an initial reading of the article, which may lead to it being rejected before it reaches the blind review stage if it does not correspond to the field covered by the journal or presents prohibitive errors in terms of content. This stage, known as desk reject, is carried out by the editors (except for special issues > see corresponding document);
  • • selecting reviewers with specialties related to the article to be evaluated. This selection stage is either carried out by the editors-in-chief, or by associate editors. The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship uses a double-blind review process: the author is unaware of the reviewers’ identities, and the reviewers are unaware of that of the author. There are at least two (or three) reviewers for each article;
  • • ensuring that there are no conflicts of interest between the author(s) and peer reviewers (for example, that they do not belong to the same institution, have not previously written anything together, or that there is no hierarchical professional relationship between them, such as one being the research supervisor of the other);
  • • ensuring that the deadline for peer review corresponds with the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of entrepreneurship’s commitments. As such, reviewers must respond within the deadline specified on Manuscript Manager (the submissions platform);
  • • ensuring that authors’ and reviewers’ identities are anonymized.
  • • checking that the submitted article is not plagiarized or self-plagiarized. This step is carried out by the subeditor, prior to the peer review process;
  • • justifying the editorial decision made about the submitted article clearly and rationally. This is carried out by the editors-in-chief.
  • At this initial stage of editing, the submitted article will be:
  • • rejected without peer review (Desk Reject); or
  • • rejected without peer review, with an invitation to resubmit at a later date as a new article (Reject and Resubmit); or
  • • forwarded to an associate editor to begin the peer review process.

Once the manuscript is taken on by an associate editor, and once he or she has received the peer reviewed version, he or she will give an overview of the reviewers’ opinions and, based on this information, make an editorial decision. In each case, the editors-in-chief write a letter to authors, providing either an editorial opinion if several rounds of revision are required, or an editorial decision marking the end of the peer review process.

In the event of doubts or diverging evaluations among the reviewers, additional opinions may be sought by the editorial board. Articles that would be contrary to the journal’s editorial policy may be rejected by the editorial board without an evaluation report being supplied. At the end of the peer review process, the associate editor sends the final decision to the editors-in-chief, who write to the authors kindly explaining the final decision. The different possible outcomes are as follows:

  • • rejection of the submission following the peer review process;
  • • acceptance of the article;
  • • minor modifications required in view of potential publication;
  • • major modifications required in view of potential publication. The evaluation process will continue only if these modifications are made, and after they have been approved by the reviewers.

Code of ethics applicable to authors

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors must vouchsafe for the originality of their article and may not publish any work that might in any way whatsoever constitute infringement as defined by the Intellectual Property Code. False or deliberately inaccurate statements constitute behavior contrary to the ethics of scientific publication and are therefore unacceptable.

Multiple, Redundant, and Simultaneous Publications

Authors undertake not to submit work previously published in another journal or an original article based exclusively on work already published elsewhere. Authors also undertake not to submit manuscripts to multiple journals simultaneously.

References

Any citation (or use of other authors’ work) must be identified as such and be accompanied by appropriate references presented in accordance with the journal’s procedures. Should authors wish to refer to information obtained privately (conversation, correspondence), they should do everything possible to obtain authorization to do so from those identified as the source of this information.

Authorship

The list of co-authors must be limited to those who made a significant contribution to the conception, conduct, or interpretation of the research presented in the manuscript submitted to the journal or to the drafting of that manuscript. All authors along with their affiliation should be listed in alphabetical order or according to their level of involvement in conducting the research or drafting the document. The corresponding author must ensure that only the appropriate co-authors are listed and that all co-authors agreed to the manuscript being submitted for publication after having seen and approved the final version of their contribution.

Defamatory Language

Authors undertake not to violate the rules of scientific debate in the articles they submit or make defamatory statements that might be interpreted as impugning the reputation of a third party.

Conflict of Interest

Authors must declare any potential, professional, or financial conflict of interest. All sources of non-public funding used in the research presented in the submission must be explicitly named.

Errata

Authors who discover a major error or inaccuracy in their work after publication are required to report this promptly to the journal’s editorial board and to cooperate with it in publishing an erratum or, if necessary, announcing the withdrawal of the article.

Access to Raw Data

At the request of the editorial board, authors may be invited to provide the raw data relating to their research. If the article is based on clinical cases involving real-life situations, the author undertakes to respect the anonymity of the individuals referred to in that article, or to obtain their explicit authorization.

Paper and Digital Publication

When submitting an article, authors undertake to authorize its distribution in both hardcopy and digital formats, particularly on the cairn.info platform, unless express notification by them to the contrary.

MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
AUTHORS GUIDELINES

The Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of Entrepreneurship is an international bilingual journal. The articles are published in two languages (French and English). To increase the visibility of authors published in the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of Entrepreneurship the Review develops the submission of articles in English. For this, authors whose articles are accepted for publication in French are asked to translate them into English. The authors finance the fees related to the copy-editing to ensure the quality of the English. Articles can be submitted directly in English.

The submission of an article to Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of Entrepreneurship includes two documents to be submitted:

  • - The full text (made completely anonymous)

To submit their article to the Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat / Review of Entrepreneurship, authors should strictly respect the following recommendations:

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE MAIN DOCUMENT (regular academic paper):

  • - The full text of the submitted article should be in Word version and is made completely anonymous. It includes an abstract in French of 100 words maximum and 5 keywords (in Times New Roman body 12) and an abstract in English of 100 words and 5 keywords (in Times New Roman body 12).
  • - Authors ensure that they cannot be identified and/or information about authors does not appear in the MAIN DOCUMENT.

  • - The titles and subtitles are numbered numerically: 1 then 1.1, 1.1.1 for the subtitles etc. They are in bold type. A line break precedes and follows each title or subtitle. Each title or subtitle is announced. Thus, there cannot be a title 2.1 directly following a title 2 without a few lines being inserted for the purposes of presentation and structuring of the section.

  • - Postal addresses
  • - Authors’ e-mail addresses

  • - A maximum of 5 key words indicating content of the article

Authors can submit two different formats to the Review of Entrepreneurship: the academic article and the research note (short format). Each format requiers specific author guidelines.

GUIDELINES FOR THE ABSTRACT
A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should concisely indicate the gap in the literature (what?), why it is important that the gap be filled (why?), and how the current paper does so (including theoretical lens and/or research method) (how?). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major contributions, theoretical and managerial. References should be avoided as uncommon abbreviations.

GUIDELINES FOR RESEARCH NOTE:
Research notes are short texts (4 pages, 2000 words – annexes included). These are literature reviews that focus on current topics in entrepreneurship that have not yet been the subject of review articles. These may be controversies or sensitive issues, subjects at the intersection of existing fields, (new?) methods that entrepreneurship researchers are beginning to seize. The idea is to make a review of the most complete literature in order to constitute a reference text in entrepreneurship.

In the research notes, the authors exhaustively list key research, debates, currents of thought on a sensitive or even controversial subject or question (“hot topic”). We recognize this type of topic in the debates and discussions not yet stabilized in the international community of entrepreneurship researchers, but also in the absence of one or more consensual articles in entrepreneurship already published on the subject. These may be questions from other disciplinary fields, which have not yet been integrated into the field of entrepreneurship, or subjects crossing two themes whose intersections have not yet been well defined.


Research note submissions are double-blindly assessed according to the following criteria:
1. The object of research: topicality, originality, relevance in relation to the current and future practices of researchers in entrepreneurship;
2. The literature review: exhaustiveness, quality of the restitution of concepts and debates, possible applications to current and future research in entrepreneurship;
3. Impact: completeness, comprehensiveness, potential to be cited as a reference text because it covers a particular issue.

The full text of the submitted article is in Word version and completely anonymized. It includes an abstract in French of a maximum of 100 words and 5 keywords (in Times New Roman size 12), also an abstract in English of 100 words and 5 keywords (in Times New Roman size 12).

  • – The authors ensure that they cannot be identified in the body of the text.
  • – Texts are typed in Times New Roman size 12 with 1.5 line spacing and 2.5 cm margins (top, bottom, right and left) in A4 single-sided format.

  • – The rare footnotes are in Times 10 character; they are numbered.
  • – The article must not exceed 4 pages, excluding bibliography.

  • – Titles and subtitles are numbered numerically: 1 then 1.1, 1.2 for subtitles etc. They are in bold. A line break precedes and follows each title or subtitle. Each title or subtitle is announced. A “hat” of a few lines under a main title (1 or 2) presents the subtitles. Thus, there cannot be a heading 2.1 directly following a heading 2 without a few lines interspersed for the purposes of presentation and structuring of the section.
  • – The introduction and the conclusion are not numbered. They are in bold.
