The Association of
Private Enterprise Education

The Journal of Private Enterprise is a twice-annual, peer-reviewed journal included in ABI/Inform-Proquest, Cabell's, Cengage/ThomsonGale, EBSCO, EconLit, the Journal of Economic Literature, Handelsblatt Ranking VWL, Public Affairs Information Service, Scopus, and Urlich's.

Since its founding in 1985, the Journal of Private Enterprise has become an important forum for scholarship in private enterprise. It has developed a rich mix of contributors ranging from Nobel Prize winners to promising younger scholars, spanning the full range of areas where private enterprise applies, including economics, entrepreneurship, public policy, history, religion, and philosophy. The importance of spreading economic freedom throughout the world motivated the Journal to expand its international readership. Today the Journal has print subscriptions in two dozen countries on five continents.

The Journal invites submissions for a small fee; papers presented at The Association of Private Enterprise Education (APEE) conference receive a waiver. A subscription to the Journal is included with membership in the Association of Private Enterprise Education. Individual and library subscriptions without APEE membership are available for $24 per year. To subscribe or order back issues, please contact Gerald Gunderson, Associate Editor Journal of Private Enterprise, Trinity College, 300 Summit Street, Hartford, CT 06106.
