Requirements for Submission
While Ivey is always eager to add cases to its collection, the need to maintain our high level of quality is vital. Ivey has a strong preference for field-based cases (cases based on direct contact with a company). We also consider the following in evaluating submissions:
- Is the submission from a faculty member or PhD candidate at a business school?
- Is the case accompanied by a suitable, comprehensive teaching note?
- Does the submission adhere to our submission and citation guidelines?
- Does the Teaching Note layout follow these guidelines?
- If field-based, has the subject company consented to the use of their information through completion of a Consent to Use Business Case Study form? (release)

- All submitted cases will be subject to review by plagiarism detection software under license to Ivey Business School Foundation.
- The submitted case and teaching note will be peer reviewed by one or more full time Ivey faculty members. Revisions may be requested to the case and teaching note before being accepted for publication.
