Chapter 13: Getting published in entrepreneurship policy
The relationship between entrepreneurship scholarship and policy is complicated and nuanced. On the one hand, scholarship in entrepreneurship might seem to be a field that is distant from any policy considerations. After all, entrepreneurship typically involves the smallest of analytical units of analysis, such as a small business, new startup or venture, or even tinier, an idea that leads to action in someoneís mind. On the other hand, entrepreneurship has become a focal point for policy. In ëA strategy for American innovation: securing our economic growth and prosperityí, the President of the USA, Barack Obama, emphasizes that entrepreneurship policy takes on a key role in generating economic growth, employment creation and global competitiveness. Similarly, entrepreneurship policy is a key priority within the European Union (Commission of the European Union, 2003). Despite this keen policy interest, the emerging scholarly field of entrepreneurship has not had an explicit policy focus. Rather, much policy focus has been on small business. Still, it would be erroneous to conclude that there are no possibilities for publishing policy research relevant to entrepreneurship.
