Authors' Submission Guidelines

The executive journal invites consultants, entrepreneurs, executives, professors, researchers, educators, and authorsto submit best practices papers and management articles. The journal welcomes white papers, case studies, unique insights, best practices advice, field lessons, and useful conceptual and applied decision-making frameworks.

Paper Format

The preferred article format is the white paper format.White papers provide businesses and government leaders with a list of questions, terminology, and discussion points that can be used to address emerging challenges and opportunities. White Papers are succinct work documents designed for problem-solving and communication by the leadership team. Unlike academic research, the white papers are not designed to impress with intellectual complexity of concepts or formulas, but more with simplicity and practicality. Also we do not pay attention to the number of pages or number of referenced sources, or the author's academic credentials. We care about the real-world value of presented ideas and their implementation frameworks in business management and public policy. Depending on the scope of the paper, the document structure may include the following sections:

  1. A statement of the problem or opportunity
  2. Analysis of root causes or underlying forces
  3. Recommendations and best practices for solution implementation
  4. Notes, references and additional research resources
