WELCOME to the inaugural issue of Middle East Journal of Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Sustainable Development (MEJELSD). The aim of MEJELSD is to disseminate the information on latest changes, trends, developments, innovations and activities in the ﬁeld of entrepreneurship. The ﬁeld of entrepreneurship entails areas of study such as leadership, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and sustainable development (SD). Hence the research in these areas will be incorporated. The journal will publish work from academics and managers in these ﬁelds. MEJELSD is a new international, multidisciplinary, refereed journal aims as a forum for academics, practitioners and policymakers from around the world to exchange concepts, research, and best practices about entrepreneurship and leadership in the Middle East. This unique initiative aims to integrate the study of these various disciplines to achieve SD in the Middle East and help to stimulate debate amongst scholars, researchers and policymakers within and outside the Middle East region with a view to deﬁning common, effective responses to tomorrow’s challenges. MEJELSD is also intended as a ﬁrst step in paving the way towards further reﬂection on the future position and role of the region in the World.
