As the flagship periodical of the Society for Arts Entrepreneurship Education (SAEE), the Journal of Arts Entrepreneurship Education provides a platform for scholars and practitioners to explore the conceptual, pedagogical, philosophical, and historical foundations of the field. Focused on evolving perspectives of arts entrepreneurship as an area of inquiry, the JAEE strives to illuminate the connections between arts production, education, policy, and business disciplines. To that end, the Editorial Board welcomes submissions that contribute to greater understanding of arts entrepreneurship teaching and learning in all forms and contexts.

The JAEE is multidisciplinary and publishes theoretical, empirically-derived, reflective, and practice-based articles on a rolling basis and in an online format. Articles accepted for publication could be full-length or short-form, data-driven (quantitative or qualitative) or persuasive. Case studies, literature reviews, historical analyses, curricular frameworks, and action research from practitioners in the field are also welcome. Submissions are double-blind peer-reviewed. All articles published in the Journal are indexed in major databases and freely available online.



Papers submitted to JAEE are subject to rigorous peer review so as to ensure that the research published is 'good science'.

Manuscripts are sent out for review electronically, and all correspondence takes place via e-mail. Although the peer review process is accelerated by the use of electronic communication, traditional, high-quality peer-review standards are applied to all manuscripts submitted to the journal.

JAEE has a 'double blind' review process: Authors are not told who reviewed their paper. The peer referees’ identity remains unknown to the authors throughout the review process.

Peer reviewers are asked to give their opinion on a number of issues pertinent to the scientific and formal aspects of a paper, and to judge the papers on grounds of originality and urgency. All relevant information will be forwarded to the author(s).

Peer reviewers will have six possible options, for each article:

1. Accept Submission (i.e. no need for any revision)
2. Revisions Required (i.e. accepted if the author makes the requested revisions)
3. Resubmit for Review (i.e. accepted or rejected after revisions have been made - paper will be sent out for another peer review round)
4. Resubmit elsewhere (i.e. if the manuscript is better suited for another journal)
5. Decline Submission (i.e. if the manuscript is substandard)
6. See Comments (i.e. if the reviewer cannot choose from any of the above)
