Emerging Leadership Journeys (ELJ) is an academic journal that provides a forum for emerging scholars in the field of leadership studies. Contributors to this journal are Ph.D. students enrolled in the Organizational Leadership program in Regent University’s School of Business & Leadership. Representing the multidisciplinary field of leadership, ELJ publishes, bi-annually, the best research papers submitted by Ph.D. students during the first four terms of their doctoral journey. These selected papers reflect the students’ scholarly endeavors in understanding the phenomenon of leadership and in advancing the field of leadership studies ontologically, epistemologically, and axiologically.

All of our journal articles may be reprinted in accordance with the doctrine of fair use as described in the U.S. Copyright Law. Anyone wishing to reprint School of Business & Leadership articles for commercial use or monetary gain must request permission and pay the associated fee.
