Entrepreneurship is increasingly important as a scholarly field. Small Business Economics: An Entrepreneurship Journal provides an invaluable forum for research and scholarship focusing on the role of entrepreneurship and small business. The journal has a broad scope and focuses on multiple dimensions of entrepreneurship, including entrepreneurs' characteristics, new ventures and innovation, firms' life cycles; as well as the role played by institutions and public policies within local, regional, national and international contexts. Small Business Economics publishes theoretical, empirical, and conceptual papers and encourages interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research from a broad spectrum of disciplines and related fields, including economics, finance, management, psychology, regional studies, sociology and strategy. Small Business Economics enjoys high international exposure and has published the leading state-of-the-art research spanning a number of business and management disciplines as well as social science fields.

Founded and edited by Indiana University's David B. Audretsch and George Mason University’s Zoltan Acs, Small Business Economics: An Entrepreneurial Journal has risen to become one of the top academic journals focusing on entrepreneurship to business schools.

The editorial office of Small Business Economics: An Entrepreneurial Journal is proudly located at the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University; Bloomington, Indiana.
