Call for Papers:
We are pleased to announce that The International Journal of Banking and Finance (IJBF) is now accepting manuscripts for review and publication in its forthcoming issues.
A general call for papers is active at all times. Authors intending to submit papers are invited to download the "Author Instructions" and submit their manuscript to the editors.
The IJBF is unique in its publication approach. The Editorial Board is committed to publishing timely original contributions that offer readers a variety of topics in the fields of banking and finance.
You are invited to submit articles for publication consideration in the IJBF. The journal publishes original contributions. Theoretical as well as empirical studies in the following areas are welcome:
|Investment and portfolio analysis||Options and futures|
|Financial institutions||Financial engineering|
|International finance||Money and banking|
|Risk management & insurance||Corporate governance|
|Ethical finance||Behavioural Finance|
|Insurance and risk management||Financial institutions|
|Financial Management||Financial markets|
|Macroeconomic aspects of finance||Mutual funds|
|Emerging markets||Exchange rates|
From time to time, the journal publishes special issues on selected and timely topics. This will be announced in the second half of each year.
The IJBF encourages practitioners to consider submitting papers that would document practical issues that currently confront the practice of banking, finance and insurance.
Papers of this type are generally different in focus and will have a different structure in writing and formatting. The editors are willing to work with the prospective practitioners to shape their papers to suit the needs of the journal’s readership.
We encourage this effort particularly now, because the world is in the midst of the most challenging liquidity crisis and credit crunch that have led in turn to income and job losses across most countries. Practitioners could use the IJBF platform to express their concerns about the existing practices and product designs. This could be done even in the absence of, for example, a clear theory to support a given practice or product in the securities industry.
