Abstract(#br)In this editorial, I seek to inform entrepreneurship scholars about the significance of unequivocal “A” level entrepreneurship journals for the continued ascent of entrepreneurship as a universally recognized “mainstream” academic field. Drawing insights from research on intellectual movements and the evolution of academic fields, I take stock of entrepreneurship as a community of scholars mobilizing elements of distinctiveness and legitimacy to elevate the status of the field. Doing so, I offer three field level observations on the primacy of unequivocal “A” journals for advancing the field. I then delineate a set of role related implications for members of the community, including authors, senior scholars, and newcomers to the field. Finally, I entertain some common... objections to emphasizing journal status as a mechanism in entrepreneurship's upsurge to “mainstream” academic field.
