Journal of Applied Financial Research 

The Journal of Applied Financial Research is intended for parties that are interested in the practical applications of financial research. The intended readership consists of both researchers and practitioners. The emphasis of the journal is on applications, not the statistical methodology used to derive the applications.  Thus, any empirical work should be clearly outlined so that a wide spectrum audience can follow the practical applications of the manuscript.


The mission of the Journal of Applied Financial Research is to support researchers and practitioners in the application of finance and economic development.  The Journal of Applied Financial Research gives preference to papers specializing in the applications related to financial research.  Regional studies and studies pertaining to small business are welcome.  Currently, the Journal of Applied Financial Research has a 23% acceptance rate.
