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.
