Call for Papers —The Noësis: MWildhorse Strategy and Performance Magazine (2019)

Call for Papers The Noësis: MWildhorse Strategy and Performance Magazine 2019

Deadline: April 26, 2019

Visibility and simplicity―do you know an entrepreneur, a consultant, or business that could do without one or the other?

We didn’t think so.  So, we strive to give organizations and entrepreneurs the best of both.

In today’s world where the language of business expands almost daily and growth-related concepts can be tough to understand, The Noësis aims to bring understanding and simplicity —disambiguation.

Its content will facilitate understanding of tough business and development concepts― while accelerating the learning of industry language and how-to.

And by so doing help organizations and entrepreneurs get more out of their investment in consulting solutions. Practitioners and consultants can expect content that will help them to improve their craft.

The power of visibility as that first step towards building trust is one the worst kept secrets of today.

Still not all visibility carries the same weight. For that reason, this magazine is designed to provide opportunities for accelerating solid trust in your expertise and business.

It does this by highlighting successful Caribbean and Canadian entrepreneurs, business related educational content, research findings, issues, trends, companies, stories, commentaries, book reviews and entertainment pieces.  In the mix will be articles and stories focused on growth related topics such as strategy, marketing, trade, performance management and measurement, intellectual property, and the creative industries.

While the focus is on Canada and the Caribbean we embrace and look forward to sharing with the global community.  This publication welcomes guest contributors from all continents, cultures, and ethnicities.  We look forward to presenting a rich blend of content by and about ambitious startups, gazelles in the making, the ordinary, the extra-ordinary and mainstream businesses, business ecosystems, consultants, and professional service providers.

The publication is a hybrid Magazine/Professional Journal geared towards C-level executives, entrepreneurs, researchers, practitioners, and consultants with an interest in strategy, marketing, evaluation, organizational assessments, international trade, FDI, entrepreneurship and international development.  It will be circulated to senior executives, business owners, and libraries.

The new Canadian-Caribbean Magazine is the only business magazine designed to promote the culture of Caribbean entrepreneurship; and entrepreneurship as a desirable, feasible and viable economic activity for Caribbean immigrants in Canada and other diasporic markets of the Region.

We want to see the growth of high performing Caribbean businesses in all major diaspora markets. We want to see the Caribbean culture of entrepreneurship and its entrepreneurial DNA deliver significant impact to entrepreneurs and the markets in which the businesses call home— as well as those they serve.  But we also want to hear the voice of others with no Caribbean roots who would love to meet and collaborate with Caribbeans through this publication.

To ensure simplicity and visibility we provide information, stimulate debate, share research, cases, and stories for ensuring organizational leaders and team have the necessary information for strategy success in starting and growing their businesses.  We want to see greater impact from international development initiatives especially in ACP Countries; therefore, we will address those issues and explore solutions.

Publishing Opportunities

Consultants and practitioners are invited to submit articles, case studies, anecdotes, and stories.

Academic researchers, consultants, and experts are invited to serve in editorial roles as well as to contribute articles, stories, and cases.

Recent Graduates, final year PhD and Master’s Degree students are invited to submit articles based on their final research papers. Submissions should have a focus on the Caribbean, Caribbean Diaspora Markets or Canada.

Business writers and/journalists are invited to submit articles (feature, news stories, historical and opinion pieces, commentaries, and tips).

Editorial Policy and Practice

Left Behind: Authorship and Missed Opportunities for Professional & Business Growth

Who has been left behind?

Mainly the English-speaking Caribbean Immigrant entrepreneur, professionals, and  young graduates, both Canadian and Caribbean.  But they are not alone; members of the African Diaspora, skilled artisans and tradesmen, and other newcomer Publishbirdentreprencaribbkwhiteentrepreneurs often fail to carve out time for holding the ball on their second role as entrepreneurs and professionals. That second role is authorship.

Immigrant professionals and entrepreneurs who studied and left behind their professional and social networks are also left behind. Second, third, and fourth generation Caribbean immigrants can also be left behind given, the gap in entrepreneurial experience of the Caribbean Immigrant Community compared to other groups.

Pursuing authorship can be difficult with all the other things to be done while growing your business.

We know it can get busy, crazy busy especially for the solopreneur or the consultant trying to reduce the faming cycle; while growing and extending the size of the harvest.

The decision to write and the time allocated to writing should be balanced against where you are in growing your business, the type of business you run, and the level of expertise you bring to your industry.

Part of the reason publishing seems so unattainable has to do with the perception that only authorship of a book represents substance and credibility as an author.   Failure to set and act on writing goals within pre-set time periods throughout the year is another drawback to getting the job done.  It has been said that a “published book is the new business card”.  But the key to success is also about knowing your situation and capacity.

If writing a book is too expensive or time consuming at this time you can publish articles, videos, stories, and other short pieces that can help you to establish your expertise and fulfill your role as the author.   Taking that route allows you to dedicate the chunk of your time to growing your business, while strengthening your brand and trust through authorship.  Peer-reviewed pieces provide even greater credibility and learning opportunities for you as entrepreneur and author. Besides, the short pieces you write may become the content for a book before you know it.

Whether you are pursuing social or commercial entrepreneurship The Noësis presents the right opportunity to balance authorship and growing your business.  For the young graduate and new researcher, you have an easy opportunity to publish. For the expert or academic, paraded before you is the opportunity to publish, or benefit and contribute by serving as editor or peer-reviewer of works. Our double-blind peer-review process gives both authors and reviewers a sense of ease and objectivity in selecting pieces as well as in providing reviews.

Submission deadline

The Noësis is a hybrid Magazine/Professional Journal geared towards C-level executives, entrepreneurs, researchers, practitioners, and consultants with an interest in strategy, marketing, evaluation, organizational assessments, international trade, entrepreneurship, and international development.
