Author Guidelines for Community College Entrepreneurship (updated on 4/21/16)

Please read these guidelines thoroughly before submitting material to Community College Entrepreneurship.

Our Audience

Our publication is written for two community college audiences:

• Administrators who are charged with establishing, building community support for, and finding funding for entrepreneurship education programs.

• Faculty members who teach entrepreneurship education and are interested in new ideas about course content and ways to engage students in the topic of entrepreneurship.

Articles on entrepreneurship directed to audiences such as entrepreneurs or business owners are not included in this journal, however, there may be an opportunity to highlight such articles in other ways for NACCE members. If you write for these audiences, please contact to discuss your content.

Article Topics

Due to the high volume of material received, the journal focuses on how-to/advice articles, opinion pieces and scholarly articles. Most program news and announcements are posted on the Member News section of the NACCE Web site instead of being published in the journal.

We are less interested in articles that talk about why entrepreneurial education is necessary and more interested in articles that tell us how you are doing a great job with your program. Articles that inform our readers of how they can design and market their programs are of great interest as is information on collaborations with other organizations and descriptions of innovative programs. Practical advice on how to do something better with step-by-step instructions is always welcome. Articles on innovative course content are also welcome.

If you have questions about whether a topic is appropriate for our journal, please contact our editor at

Who Can Write for Us

Our primary focus is sharing information from NACCE members and sponsors. We do allow one non-member article per issue, however, and invite nonmembers to submit a synopsis of their proposed topic for consideration to our editor at

Article Length

• Articles should be limited to 550 words for news, opinion and how-to/advice. Scholarly articles should be limited to 1,200 words. If your article’s word count exceeds these limits, it will be subject to editing by the NACCE editor.

By-lines & Contact Information

• We use bylines for all submitted articles. Each byline should include the author’s name, title, name of school or organization and location (city/state).

• We include contact information such as an e-mail address or telephone number with each article so readers can easily obtain more information about the article. Please include this contact information with your submission. Also please identify which of our two audiences your article is designed for: administrators or faculty.

Photos & Captions

• Photos in .jpeg and .tiff digital format are welcome and encouraged. Please include captions, with the names of any individuals shown listed from left to right. Please send the photos separately from the document; photos dropped into a Word document are not acceptable.
