Call for Cases and Papers
Journal of Case Research and Inquiry
Western Casewriters Association


The Journal of Case Research and Inquiry seeks submissions of teaching case studies, notes, and articles related to case research and teaching with cases. All submissions to JCRI will be double blind peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. Published cases, notes, and articles will be available full-text online and free of charge for instructors and students.

Cases. The journal seeks cases that address significant contemporary issues faced by organizations and mangers in the areas of business and public administration, nonprofit management, and social entrepreneurship. All cases must be submitted together with instructor manuals (IMs). Cases may be derived from primary field research, secondary research, or a combination of both. JCRI does not accept fictional cases, nor cases, notes, or articles previously published elsewhere. We seek cases that will grab students' attention. Cases employing multimedia methods and links to web resources are especially welcome.

Notes and Articles. Pedagogical notes that accompany a given case may be submitted to the journal; notes may be summaries of industry characteristics and trends, or theoretical or legal analyses that complement a case. JCRI also seeks scholarly articles addressing significant issues related to case research, case writing, and teaching with cases.

Submissions. Authors of cases, articles, and notes should adhere to the submission guidelines posted on the journal website Submissions and inquiries may be made to the editor at Information about the Western Casewriters Association can be found at
