International Academy for Case Studies

When we formed the International Academy for Case Studies, now known as the Academy for Case Studies, in 1994, case writing was not well recognized. We have always seen cases as extremely valuable teaching tools, but now we will be able to see them as valuable career development tools as a result of changes in accreditation standards.

We are extremely pleased to report that case writing is now officially recognized in the new, 2013 AACSB International Accreditation Standards as an acceptable form of research. Standard 2, and its supporting Table 2-1 Intellectual Contributions, actually list case writing as an approved form of Intellectual Contribution.

The new standards require documentation of impact for all Intellectual Contributions. We can help with that! Documentation of impact is first and foremost demonstrated by publication in a high quality journal. The Journal of the International Academy for Case Studies is a high quality, double blind, peer refereed journal. It is well known and well established, currently soliciting cases for publication in its twentieth year. Full information about the Journal is presented in the Journal tab, above.

Please note that we have available streaming videos which we think you will find valuable. The videos include an instructional module on case writing and development, and a module on the publish or perish process. Just click on the Videos link above to see the offerings.
