As the new editors of the JFR, one of our primary goals is to increase the visibility and the impact of the journal. The current ‘aims and scope’ of the JFR define a solid foundation for the journal and will continue to be the main stay of the journal. However, we are expanding the focus to include several areas that we believe are currently underserved by other outlets. In particular, we want to solicit high quality manuscripts in the areas of Financial Accounting, Experimental Finance, and International Finance.
We believe that all three areas are under represented in current high quality outlets and by adding these areas, we will increase the readership and impact of the JFR.
