Author Guidelines

The mission of Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship in the Arts is to disseminate new thinking and perspectives on arts entrepreneurship theory, practice, and pedagogy.

Artivate publishes original scholarship that engages with arts entrepreneurship in the following areas: entrepreneurship theory as applied to the arts; arts entrepreneurship education; arts management; arts and creative industries; public policy and the arts; the arts in community and economic development; nonprofit leadership; social entrepreneurship in or using the arts; evaluation and assessment; public practice in the arts.

The editors are particularly interested in articles that actively link theory with practice in ways that will be of interest and impact to the broad cross-section of the Journal’s readership. Self-reflective studies from arts entrepreneurs and empirical research from scholars are equally welcome. We are interested in supporting the growth of our nascent discipline and also welcome debut articles from emerging scholars.

Submissions should be between 4,000 and 10,000 words in length. In-text citations and the subsequent reference list must follow APA format. Articles will be evaluated in a double-blind process by members of the journal’s editorial board; please omit all identifying headers, footers, watermarks, and referential content, e.g., “I work at Jurassic University where I teach arts entrepreneurship”.

  • Please compose both a title and a subtitle for your article. While the title may be creative, the subtitle should very plainly describe the article topic, employing whatever important keywords are most relevant.
  • Please make sure your submission includes complete, accurate metadata, including a title and a subtitle, an abstract (100-word limit), and full contributor information including biographies for all authors (50-word limit for each). Metadata can be updated via the metadata button at the top-right corner of your submission.
  • Please include in your submitted article a reference to a rights-cleared image to serve as a cover image for your contribution. We recommend an image labeled with a Creative Commons license for any reuse. Insert at the end of your article a linked attribution for the image (see these best practices for guidance) rather than the image itself.
