Cases must have a Haas Faculty Sponsor as the lead (first listed) author.
Cases should have general editorial and pedagogical excellence.
Content must be of high interest to Undergraduate, MBA, and/or Executive Education programs.
Cases should be approximately 2,000 to 5,000 words in length, about 10 pages or less using our case template.
All cases must have written teaching notes that follow the design of our teaching note template.
Class testing, where students complete a formal quantitative assignment as part of the case analysis, is not required but is preferred and strongly encouraged.
If you are not a current Haas faculty member, you may still submit a case study for consideration. However, all cases must have a Haas faculty sponsor, who will be listed as the lead author. If you already have a fully developed case study, please contact us. If you are interested in developing a new case study, please consider consulting the Haas faculty directory to find a Haas faculty sponsor who may be interested in working with you on your case study.
Authors are required to complete three consent forms prior to publishing their case:
Author Publication Agreement
Open Access Waiver
Company Consent Form
Forms will be sent via DocuSign. We ask that authors review, sign, and return these forms within three business days. Extensions are possible in situations where it may take longer to receive written consent from a signing authority at the subject company.
Authors must obtain copyright permission for all proprietary information that will be part of the case, regardless of whether it was obtained from a public source (e.g., logos, charts, figures, graphs, interviews). This is a critical (and the most often overlooked) requirement of publishing. Copyright acquisition is ALWAYS easier to obtain at the beginning of the case writing process than after the fact.
A case cannot be published or distributed until all necessary written permission has been submitted to the Berkeley-Haas Case Series.
