Aims and Scope

We are primarily interested in publishing interdisciplinary research in the intersection of banking, insurance, and finance in the Asian context, which is conducted through qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches. AJF is a peer-reviewed premier bi-annual outlet for substantive research in and out of Asia. We consider research papers, case studies, practitioner papers, technical papers, and book reviews for publication. Asian Journal of Finance (AJF) intends to publish theoretical and empirical research papers covering all research fields in banking, insurance, and finance, providing a scholarly outlet for the studies enabling a forum for commentary on current issues and challenges in and out of the Asian context.



Why choose us?

We are not simply offering only a publication in this new journal - we are strive to attract people who are eager to participate in the project, and in the experiment of developing banking, insurance, and finance. We are creating a community around the journal that would help academics and practitioners with finding partners for joint research. At the same time, the journal is refereed and it will be abstracted and indexed by the main academic databases such as Scopus, Web of Science, ABDC, ABS, and etc. We thus see our role as providing a platform for research, commentary, and debate of the highest scholarly quality that contributes to the struggle to create a more just and humane world in the Asia Pacific, in which the systematic and continuous exploitation, oppression, and fratricidal struggles that characterize the contemporary sociopolitical order no longer exist, and banking, insurance, and finance sectors achieve their full potential.
