Objectives

PROGRESIF: Jurnal Kewirausahaan dan UMKM is a double-blind reviewed and scholarly Journal dedicated to publishing in English and Bahasa original and outstanding studies that improve knowledge and understanding of entrepreneurship and small business management and, eventually, shape these fields of research.

Studies published might be theoretical pieces, qualitative and quantitative empirical work, and/or case studies. Given that the objective of the Journal is to push the boundaries of current entrepreneurial and small business management thoughts, case studies to be published in PROGRESIF must have a theoretical perspective. The theoretical contribution can be related to the fact that the case challenges the existing theory or highlights it better. Consequently, cases and teaching notes that are written just for a didactic purpose as an illustration of a theory in the classroom will not fit to being published in the PROGRESIF.
