IJIC's Mission

The International Journal of Instructional Cases (IJIC) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed, electronic publication with ongoing release of instructional cases and related materials for use in classroom and boardroom settings.

IJIC only publishes concise teaching cases with expanded teaching notes. The cases are short (four pages or fewer) but the teaching notes are extensive, providing rich instructional assistance.

These cases are available individually, and are also compiled into one volume annually, released upon acceptance during the year. IJIC publishes both field-researched and data-driven cases in all business disciplines. All cases are factual representations of situations in real organizations. The journal features a global reach with local impact.

ANNOUNCEMENT: As an international journal, we are pleased to announce that we are now accepting cases in Spanish as well as in English. Spanish-language cases will be reviewed by Spanish speakers and held to the same standards as English-language cases. In this way, we hope to extend our offerings and make available high quality concise cases for a broader population.

Full details, including a sample case in Spanish, are available by clicking on the Español link at the top of this page, and choosing the ‘Envíanos tus casos’ link from the top menu.

COMING SOON: French language cases. News to follow…
