Bringing Research-Based Insights to a Wider Audience: Our Partnership With Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal
A key part of our mission at EIX is giving entrepreneurs access to new knowledge generated by top-notch academic research. As part of that mission, EIX has partnered with Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal (SEJ), a leading journal in the field of entrepreneurship. Over the past two years, we’ve worked with SEJ editors and authors to identify recently accepted SEJ articles that offer insights relevant to practicing entrepreneurs. EIX editors have then worked with the authors to generate short, readable articles that condense each study’s key findings in ways useful to entrepreneurs and those who work with them.
Our partnership has helped increase SEJ’s impact by bringing high-quality research studies, and their practical takeaways, to people who wouldn’t find these studies on their own. Happily, our research translations have generated many thousands of page views.
Below are links to the articles we’ve translated to date. We’ll add to this list as our partnership continues. We’re delighted to make this content broadly available so that more people can learn and benefit from it, and we hope you enjoy it too.

To date, we've known relatively little about whether the reason for microfinance loans affects how much it helps the borrower. We explored that here.
In addition to the translations published above, we published the following article, which highlights some ways for scholars to learn from the insights of practitioners. In this way, our partnership underscores that learning can, of course, flow both ways – i.e., not just from research to practice, but from practice to research as well.
