About the book

Entrepreneurship is a generator of innovation, economic growth, income, contributing to economic and regional development. Enterprises are an essential part of the business sector and the national economy. The presented book was motivated by an actual tendency in entrepreneurship around the world. It is a good place for research results presentation for authors from the world. Contributions are expected in the field of (but not limited to) these six key book topics: small and medium enterprises and family businesses, business environment, international entrepreneurship, managerial trends in entrepreneurship, innovation in entrepreneurship and sustainability in entrepreneurship.

The Entrepreneurship book project is envisioned to have interdisciplinary features. The challenge of working as a team, co-operation to prepare and select material for this book is faced by professionals with the academic and practical experience from many countries. These topics are considered to be very interesting and reflected on current research results of academic staff and scientists. With hope, that this opportunity brings new possibilities for international scientific cooperation for all.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
