Author Guidelines for Community College Entrepreneurship (updated on 7/5/12)
Please read these guidelines thoroughly before submitting material
to Community College Entrepreneurship.
Our publication is written
for two community college audiences:
• Administrators who
are charged with establishing, building community support for, and finding
funding for entrepreneurship education programs.
• Faculty members who
teach entrepreneurship education and are interested in new ideas about course
content and ways to engage students in the topic of entrepreneurship.
Articles on entrepreneurship
directed to audiences such as entrepreneurs or business owners are not included
in this journal, however, there may be an opportunity to highlight such
articles in other ways for NACCE members. If you write for these audiences,
please contact email@example.com
to discuss your content.
Due to the high volume of
material received, the journal focuses on how-to/advice articles, opinion
pieces and scholarly articles. Most program news and announcements are posted
on the Member News section of the NACCE Web site instead of being published in
We are less interested in
articles that talk about why entrepreneurial education is necessary and more
interested in articles that tell us how you are doing a great job with your
program. Articles that inform our readers of how they can design and market
their programs are of great interest as is information on collaborations with
other organizations and descriptions of innovative programs. Practical advice
on how to do something better with step-by-step instructions is always welcome.
Articles on innovative course content are also welcome.
If you have questions about
whether a topic is appropriate for our journal, please contact our editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
