Society for Case Research
As editors, our goal is to facilitate the publishing of interesting and relevant cases that allow for students to evaluate real-world events and experiences. To this end, we provide the structure and process for authors, reviewers, and readers. Specifically, we publish the timeline for the review and publication process, communicate with authors and reviewers, assign qualified reviewers, ensure that permissions are submitted, and follow up when appropriate. We succeed when the authors’ case study is complete and the teaching note is thorough, and the authors and reviewers have determined that this case is ready for publication; that this case promotes excellence.
