Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- I, the corresponding author, am authorized by all of my co-authors to submit this paper. The paper has not been submitted, in its current version, to any other journal. The journal adheres to a 'double blind' review process and thus the identity of the authors should remain unknown.
I, the submitting author, will be the point of contact throughout the peer review and proofreading process (if applicable).
- I have subjected the manuscript to professional language editing (only applicable for non native speakers).
If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed. The title page revealing the identity of the authors should be uploaded separately.

- the URLs to access references online are provided and ready to click (e.g., www.innovationandentrepreneurship.net)

- TAB has been used when indenting paragraphs or separating columns in tables
- 'italics' or single quotes have been used for emphasis (avoid using underlines!)
- the same elements have been keyed in exactly the same way throughout the manuscript
- Upon acceptance I/we will provide a complete manuscript as a text file (Word, RTF, WordPerfect), with all tables, legends and supplemental material (if applicable) placed at the end of the manuscript after the reference list. Also, each figure and supplemental material will be submitted separately in the original source file and in accordance with the guidelines provided.

Authors retain copyright of their work, with first publication rights granted to Co-Action Publishing. However, authors are required to transfer copyrights associated with commercial use to the Publisher. Revenues from commercial sales are used to keep down the publication fees.

Like most website operators, Co-Action Publishing collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Co-Action Publishing’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Co-Action Publishing’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Co-Action Publishing may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Co-Action Publishing also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. However, Co-Action Publishing does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Co-Action Publishing’s websites interact with Co-Action Publishing in ways that require Co-Action Publishing to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Co-Action Publishing gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask authors who are to pay a publication fee at www.co-action.net to provide certain details. Those who engage in transactions with Co-Action Publishing – by paying publication fees, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Co-Action Publishing collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Co-Action Publishing. Co-Action Publishing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Co-Action Publishing may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Co-Action Publishing may monitor the most popular parts of the website. Co-Action Publishing may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Co-Action Publishing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Co-Action Publishing discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Co-Action Publishing’s behalf or to provide services available at Co-Action Publishing’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Co-Action Publishing’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Co-Action Publishing will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Co-Action Publishing discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Co-Action Publishing believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Co-Action Publishing, third parties or the public at large.
