World Journal of Entrepreneurship, Management and Sustainable Development (WJEMSD) is a forum for academics, practitioners and policymakers from around the world to exchange concepts, research, and best practices about entrepreneurship and management. The journal aims to integrate the study of these disciplines to achieve sustainable development (SD) and help to stimulate debate amongst scholars, researchers and policymakers across the world with a view to defining common, effective responses to tomorrow’s challenges. Given the apparently contradictory needs of economic growth and environmental conservation, it comes as no surprise that the impact of the global financial crisis on SD has had such a powerful influence in contemporary discussions on the future of our world. 

The latest WJEMSD articles (2022-) are available to download free of charge from our digital library or from a member subscription platforms from Emerald Publishing (2012-2020) and Inderscience Publishers (2005-2009).
