The world’s No.1 scientific journal for Entrepreneurship and one of the most renowned ones for Business and Management has chosen the Professor from the Faculty of Economics of unibz as one of its editors.

Alfredo De Massis, who’s currently professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Business at unibz and director of the Centre for Family Business Management at the Noi Techpark in Bolzano freshly achieved a new leading scientific position.

Starting from September 2020, Alfredo De Massis has accepted to become an Editor of the Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice (ETP) Journal. ETP can boast an Impact Factor of 10.75 and the competition among scholars who aim at being published in it can be ruthless. For some studies, the referral process at ETP can be long and really competitive with an acceptance ratio of around 5%. All the more reason for pride at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is the fact that one of its professors has been chosen to be one of the journal’s editors by virtue of his scientific reputation. No doubt this will benefit the entire Faculty in terms of international visibility.

“The task, of course, is not the easiest one”, De Massis admits. The scholar is already Associate Editor of the Family Business Review and serves in the editorial boards of Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal and Journal of Family Business Strategy. “Editorial work occupies at least a day and a half of my week”, he says, “Nonetheless I’m more than happy for this additional workload as it is important to give back to the field and contribute to shaping its future. ETP is one of the very few journals included in the prestigious Financial Times ranking of the top 50 scientific journals with the greatest impact; moreover, this activity allows me to be updated on all the major innovations in the field”.

Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice is an American Journal and it is the first time in its entire history that they choose an Italian editor.
