Who can publish an educational case?
All HEC Paris professors are invited to publish their work on our collection.
What types of documents are admissible?
The cases must be submitted with accompanying teaching notes. Additionally, any complimentary documents can be submitted as well (excel files, ppt, videos…).
The cases must adhere to the quality standards of the HEC Paris collection and belong to one of the categories of cases defined below.
What are the publishing criteria to abide by?
The document(s) must meet the quality standards of the HEC collection:
1- "Transferability": The case must be easy to use for another instructor/lecturer; the educational objectives must be clearly detailed. Finally, the case must be adaptable to different types of audiences.
2- "Innovation": Authors are invited to use creative and original scenarios. They are also encouraged to diversify the choice of media (paper, video, website, etc.).
3- "Authenticity": Cases can be developed with the support of a real or fictitious company, but the given management situation should always offer credible scenarios (e.g. A fictitious case based on the collection of authentic data by the author, and then presented as belonging to one and the same company).
4- "Originality": Authors are encouraged to address unpublished topics; management topics that others have not tackled. Original and atypical contributions are welcome.
What are the different categories of cases?
Case Category 1: Cases developed in proven partnership with a real company
This type of case is based on a real situation and business, developed with the direction contribution from the company itself. For this category of case, a written declaration on company letterhead from a manager at the company is required at the time of submission to the collection. The letter must formally outline the company’s participation in the development of the case, and the company’s agreement to disseminate and publish all information contained in the case through the CCMP.
The amount of the transfer of copyright may not exceed 50% of the public selling price of the work.
Case Category 2: Cases developed about a real company without explicit agreement from the company
This type of case is based on actual company data (company that is the subject of the case) or from another duly authorized source of information. According to the agreements and rights obtained by the author from the company, the name and the business name of the company to which reference is made in the case can be quoted in the clear or anonymized by the attribution of another name.
The amount of the transfer of copyright may not exceed 40% of the public selling price of the work.
Case Category 3: Fictitious Cases or Pedagogical Cases
This type of case is based on the professional experience of the author, who has authentic data from a variety of different companies, but presents them in the case as belonging to one company.
The amount of the transfer of copyright may not exceed 30% of the public selling price of the work.
Should a Publication Authorization be provided?
If the case is developed in partnership with a company, the author(s) is(are) required to provide an authorization duly signed by the company in order to publish the case
When and how are royalties paid?
The royalty fees are paid out to the author(s) each year by the CCMP.
The amount of royalties is established at the time of signature of the contract, within the limit of the percentage of transfer corresponding to the category of the case, and according to the distribution wanted by the authors if they are several.
