Call for cases

We are looking for high-quality, peer reviewed teaching cases, with a focus on management and business situations in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

Cases and their accompanying teaching notes must have been written by authors located in the MEA region (see a list of countries classified as being in the MEA region).

Cases can be based on published sources or field research. Fictional cases, or those from generalised experience, are not accepted.

You may submit more than case for consideration, but only one submission per author(s) per issue may be accepted.

Submission requirements

Before submitting your case please make sure that you have read our submission requirements. Any items submitted that do not meet these requirements will be returned to the author(s) for further work.
