Journal of Nonprofit Management


The Journal of Nonprofit Management (JNPM) is is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed open access journal in German and English language.

JNMP is aimed at all practitioners and researchers and those who manage nonprofit organisations and services. The journal publishes articles based on original research or presenting trends and good practices and addresses different disciplines, sub-disciplines and fields. The JNPM contributes to the discussion in the form of basic articles, concepts and practical contributions.

Papers submitted to JNPM are carefully reviewed in the first instance by the international Editorial Board. Papers that do not meet editorial needs; are methodically flawed; or lack originality will be rejected. Papers which pass the Editorial review will be sent out to anonymous peer-review.

JNPM will publish two issues per year, one per semester. For each issue there is a call for papers with a specific focus topic.
