The International Indigenous Journal of Entrepreneurship, Advancement,
Strategy and Education is a fully blind-refereed journal, although we
also publish non-refereed material, i.e. book reviews and commentary.
Our Editorial Board includes academics with competence
in all areas covered by the journal.

This Journal accepts material previously published elsewhere,
as long as our peer review process deems the material of
interest to our readers.

These Instructions to Authors are published so that
submissions may be prepared to a standard format and style.

In addition, all authors should remember that the journal has
an international readership - local acronyms or organizations,
for example, need to be explained.

Please read our Call for Papers before you submit any material.
You will need to understand what kind of manuscripts we will
consider for this Journal.

the panel of Associate Editors. Authors will be notified within

The document must be in in HTML or XHTML format,
suitable for browsing with Netscape or Internet Explorer

DO NOT USE MicroSoft's Word program or its html editor
Front Page to convert your word-processed document to
HTML - these programs add a great deal of unnecessary
coding, inflating the file by up to 200% and making the
page unreadable in the intended way by older browsers.
If you use this kind of conversion program, your paper will
be returned for editing and this may delay publication.

uses a standard layout
for its articles, and we will automatically convert material to this

The title, authors names and affiliations, etc., at the head of
the paper should appear as follows:

Abstracts are very important as we and citation indexing
services use them for search engines. A well-written abstract
helps others to find your paper, and it encourages them to read
your full manuscript.

Your abstract should be between 140 and 220 words in length,
and clearly inform as to Introduction, Methods, Analysis,
Results and Conclusions. You probably will write 2-3 short
sentences for each of these categories. If your paper is not a
'standard' research paper, for instance one with a high degree
of qualitative, speculative and editorial content, we will accept
a non-structured abstract.

Here is an example for a structured abstract:

INTRODUCTION We report a review of sustainability practices in not-for-profit,
government-sponsored organizations in New Zealand. Funding shortages
have been reported as drivers behind the development of sustainability practices
at these entities. This study attempts to identify which sustainability characteristics
can be found in this population and how effectively they are deployed.

METHOD Web-based surveys were employed to access a large population of
organizations in the North Island of New Zealand. In-depth interviews were then
conducted, followed by structured reviews of the firm, its management and
all key staff. The findings were shared with the management, for additional

ANALYSIS We carried out quantitative and qualitative analyses on this data.
We used standard SPSS statistical measures for the quantitative portion,
and developed a structured table/matrix system to categorize qualitative

RESULTS Sustainability is a highly non-specific term and applied differently
in different organizations worldwide. There is considerable attraction
to the notion of "remaining in business forever", but we found that the
approach to sustainability in practice varied greatly throughout the
researched population.

CONCLUSION A management focus on sustainability as part of the business
tactics increases the awareness of the staff as to long-term operating success.
Organizations which can demonstrate sustainability awareness and application,
receive more funding from donors than those firms which do not.

Citations are based on the APA publication manual (5th ed.)
style, which is the most widely used style for bibliography
references. Several authoring applications, such as EndNote
and Reference Manager, use this style.
