The International Journal of Case Research & Application – IJCRA - is the official publication of WACRA® and as such aims to publish high-quality original manuscripts that (1) extend and disseminate the scholarship of case method research worldwide and (2) capture innovation and creativity in learning through interactive teaching methods globally. To make available the published work of IJCRA authors to case writers, teachers, researchers and scholars world-wide, the WACRA® Board has decided, at the end of each year, to move four quarterly issues of IJCRA into the public domain.

Por medio de esta iniciativa, el Consejo de WACRA desea facilitar la investigación y aplicación en la enseñanza utilizando el método de casos y otros enfoques interactivos, asistiendo a los profesores, especialmente a los juniors, en su redacción y actividades interactivas de enseñanza, y proporcionar una más amplia e internacional exposición de las publicaciones de los que contribuyen al International Journal of Case Method Research & Application IJCRA. El traspasar a domino público selectos volúmenes de IJCRA alentará un uso más amplio de las metodologías del método de caso e interactivas. El reservar los actuales números solamente a miembros activos de WACRA animará al crecimiento de las membresías.

Writing & Presentation Tips
What’s a Good Case?

A case is the fundamental building block of the experiential learning process that is embodied in the case method. It offers “decision-making calisthenics.” It is a well told story that should capture the richness of a decision-making experience in enough detail to create a proxy for experience for students and to drive challenging individual study and small and full-class discussions. In this way, it becomes a catalyst for developing critical thinking skills.

International Journal of Case Method
Research & Application
The International Journal of Case Method Research & Application is an international, interdisciplinary forum for researchers, educators and professionals. IJCRA solicits and welcomes research across the entire range of topics encompassing the domain of case method research and application and interactive teaching methodologies. The Journal scope includes case writing, interactive teaching and learning, continuing and distance education, which cross national, cultural and disciplinary boundaries. IJCRA welcomes theoretical and empirical papers that advance social science research on teaching and learning.

IJCRA has special interest in research addressing important issues that transcend the boundaries of single academic disciplines and corporate managerial functions. Therefore, IJCRA welcomes interdisciplinary scholarship and commentaries that challenge the paradigms and assumptions of single disciplines or functions. IJCRA solicits and accepts manuscripts on teaching materials and methods. Experimental, developmental work (e.g., presentation of stages of development of a case study and reviews of books dealing with topics related to case writing, interactive, innovative teaching, continuing education, distance education) will also be considered.
