NEW YORK, NY, Jan. 12, 2011 — The inaugural issue of Entrepreneurship Research Journal (ERJ), a new research journal within the field of entrepreneurship that encourages a scholarly exchange between researchers from any field of study who focus on entrepreneurs, was launched in early January. Co-edited by Ramona K. Zachary, Academic Director of the Lawrence N. Field Programs in Entrepreneurship and the Peter S. Jonas Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship at Baruch College, and Chandra S. Mishra, Office Depot Eminent Scholar Chair at Florida Atlantic University, ERJ will be published four times a year by The Berkley Electronic PressTM and can be accessed via the ERJ website at www.bepress.com/erj/.

ERJ will include both theoretical and empirical articles, with priority being given to high quality theoretical and empirical papers that have managerial or public policy orientation as well as ramifications for entrepreneurship research overall. The inaugural issue titled, New Perspectives on Entrepreneurship Research, features articles on new perspectives about entrepreneurship research, as well as an expanded view of Joseph A. Schumpeter’s original theory of entrepreneurship and a new evolutionary perspective of entrepreneurship by several eminent scholars including William J. Baumol of New York University and Howard E. Aldrich of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The ERJ is part of a research effort within the Lawrence N. Field Programs in Entrepreneurship based at the Zicklin School of Business of Baruch College. The Field Programs use a unique and comprehensive model for entrepreneurship which brings together faculty, staff, students, consultants, practitioners, and entrepreneurs to provide educational programs and services as well as conduct and disseminate research. The Field Programs in Entrepreneurship have internationally recognized research, nationally ranked undergraduate and graduate academic programs and degrees, and an array of counseling/consulting services via the award winning Baruch Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Within the Field Programs, the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship is a model of entrepreneurship education built around the collaboration of an institution of higher education, government, and the private sector. Faculty and students from the Zicklin School of Business, Baruch SBDC Business Advisors, Baruch College alumni, and volunteer professionals are brought together to support the entrepreneurial endeavors of college faculty and students as well as start-up and established businesses.
