Authors' Submission Guidelines
The executive journal invites consultants, entrepreneurs,
executives, professors, researchers, educators, and authors to
submit best practices papers and management articles. The journal welcomes
white papers, case studies, unique insights, best practices advice,
field lessons, and useful conceptual and applied decision-making frameworks.
The preferred article format is the white paper format.
White papers provide businesses and government leaders with a list of
questions, terminology, and discussion points that can be used to address
emerging challenges and opportunities. White Papers are succinct work
documents designed for problem-solving and communication by the leadership
team. Unlike academic research, the white papers are not designed to impress
with intellectual complexity of concepts or formulas, but more with
simplicity and practicality. Also we do not pay attention to the number of
pages or number of referenced sources, or the author's academic credentials. We
care about the real-world value of presented ideas and their implementation
frameworks in business management and public policy. Depending on the scope
of the paper, the document structure may include the following sections:
statement of the problem or opportunity
Analysis of root causes or underlying forces
Recommendations and best practices for solution implementation
references and additional research resources

is of a research and educational nature (not for commercial profit)

- When you use someone else's solutions or expressions, include a
reference to the author or the source.
- Whenever possible, obtain the author's permission before using
their expression of ideas.
