More on this journal...

The objectives of IJSEI are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with complex global social issues and innovation. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the emerging field of social entrepreneurship. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and innovative activities taking place in the global economy.


IJSEI provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in all the functional areas of management, social sciences, public administration, NGOs, technology, engineering, and education, and practitioners, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJSEI publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, and case studies. Special issues devoted to important topics in social entrepreneurship and innovation will occasionally be published.
