Author Guidelines

Artivate seeks works of original scholarship that engage 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.

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) and all illustrations, figures, and tables placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end. Tables in excel format should also be submitted as separate supplemental 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”).
