'Middle East Journal of Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Sustainable Development’, MEJELSD, Vol. 1, No. 1, 2017
WELCOME to the inaugural issue of Middle East Journal of
Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Sustainable Development (MEJELSD).
The aim of MEJELSD is to disseminate the information on latest changes,
trends, developments, innovations and activities in the ﬁeld of
entrepreneurship. The ﬁeld of entrepreneurship entails areas of study
such as leadership, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and sustainable
development (SD). Hence the research in these areas will be
incorporated. The journal will publish work from academics and managers
in these ﬁelds. MEJELSD is a new international, multidisciplinary,
refereed journal aims as a forum for academics, practitioners and
policymakers from around the world to exchange concepts, research, and
best practices about entrepreneurship and leadership in the Middle East.
This unique initiative aims to integrate the study of these various
disciplines to achieve SD in the Middle East and help to stimulate
debate amongst scholars, researchers and policymakers within and outside
the Middle East region with a view to deﬁning common, effective
responses to tomorrow’s challenges. MEJELSD is also intended as a ﬁrst
step in paving the way towards further reﬂection on the future position
and role of the region in the World.
