For Authors

Artivate is currently accepting submissions for its next issue!

Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship in the Arts accepts articles at any time for its twice yearly publication. Articles submitted by May 15, 2017 will be considered for the 2017 special issue: Arts Entrepreneurship and Creative Placemaking. Submissions received after that date may be considered for that or a subsequent issue. Please see the "Announcements" tab for information on the special issue.

The first journal to focus on the emergent field of arts entrepreneurship, Artivate seeks works of original scholarship that engages with arts entrepreneurship in the following areas: entrepreneurship theory as applied to the arts; arts entrepreneurship education; arts management; arts and creative industries; public policy and the arts; the arts in community and economic development; nonprofit leadership; social entrepreneurship in or using the arts; evaluation and assessment in and of the field; innovation and arts technology; public practice in the arts. The editors are particularly interested in articles that actively link theory with practice in ways that will be of interest and impact to the broad cross-section of Artivate’s readership. Self-reflective case studies from arts entrepreneurs and empirical research from scholars are equally welcome.

Artivate is a peer-reviewed online publication for an academic and practitioner audience, indexed by EBSCO. Editorial board members are affiliated with universities, foundations, and arts services organizations on three continents. The co-editors are Linda Essig, Director of the Pave Program in Arts Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University, which publishes the journal, and Joseph Roberts, PhD, Director of the Entrepreneurship Program in the Walker School of Business and Technology at Webster University and Program Director of the Coleman Fellows Program.

Submissions should be between 4,000 and 10,000 words in length. In-text citations and the subsequent reference list must follow APA format. Articles must be submitted in a word format (doc or docx) with any figures or illustrations submitted as separate jpg files. Articles will be evaluated in a double blind process by members of the journal’s editorial board so the articles themselves should include no identifying headers, footers, watermarks, or specific content (e.g. “at Jurassic University where I teach arts entrepreneurship”).
