JEMI is an interdisciplinary, focused on economics, business, and management journal that uniquely combines three thematic areas: i) entrepreneurship, including entrepreneurial process, entrepreneurial finance, and SME and entrepreneurship policy; ii) all types of management; iii) innovation, comprising innovation economics, policy, and management. In this vein, the JEMI contributes to economics, business, and management research, as well as business practice and policy in the closely related areas of new venture creation and growth, knowledge generation, retention, appropriation, transfer, and governance, as well as innovation processes and their economic impacts. In a nutshell, our journal addresses the interrelated research fields of entrepreneurial venturing and growth, management, and innovation economics and management. We also acknowledge the context of business venturing, knowledge and innovation, by linking these areas with such background topics as social context of entrepreneurship, environmental and energy issues, human resource migration,  or entrepreneurial finance.
