ABOUT ACIEK

Background

Academy


Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge membership expresses a researcher’s continuous focus on innovation and knowledge processes. Academy members embrace the wisdom of Academy Fellow Gerd Gigerenzer, who argues that “Scientists’ tools are not neutral.” Tools-in-use indicate the relevance of alternative theories and the researcher’s focus as to how to answer research questions. Academy members recognize the need to contribute with useful theory on why superior innovations are often initially rejected by users who would benefit the most from their adoption. Academy members understand that innovation and knowledge research is a tricky business because people in organizations/firms often say more or less than they consciously or unconsciously know.

Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge is the one global organization that welcomes scholars seeking to acquire a deep understanding of innovation and knowledge theory and practice.


The Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge holds its Conferences in top international universities. The overall theme of each ACIEK Conference is broken down into the same topic or different subtopics for each journal, as per the decision of the editor-in-chief. The ACIEK Conference topics are thus adapted to the research scope and editorial policy of each journal. The total number of sessions or tracks is determined by the number of journals.

One of the goals of the Conference is to select papers that, depending on the speciality of the journal and the quality of the papers, will be able to publish in the journals. Ethical guidelines are common in Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge Conferences. Academic and professional integrity and excellence are standard at the Conferences. The Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines are compliant with COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics). All the Academy journals comply with the principles of transparency and best practice for scholarship.

If a paper is accepted to be presented at the ACIEK Conference, the abstract will automatically appear in the Conference Proceedings (with ISBN). Furthermore, the best papers may be published in the participating journals.


At the 14th Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge Conference, participants will be able to discuss important academic issues with editors of SSCI/JCR-ranked journals (WoS by Clarivate Analytics).
