The Journal of International Money and Finance
Since its launch in 1982, Journal of International Money and Finance has built up a solid reputation as a high quality scholarly journal devoted to theoretical and empirical research in the fields of international monetary economics, international finance, and the rapidly developing overlap area between the two. Today, it is one of the key journals in the field of modern finance. A special issue of JIMF on Current Account Imbalances and International Financial Integration is a unique opportunity to showcase literature among a broader finance audience. At the same time, the special issue of JIMF is a great way of attracting the best researchers, since publishing in JIMF is a great opportunity for all.
The deadline for submissions for the conference is August 19, 2013. Authors will be notified of the final programme by September 9, 2013. To submit a paper, please email a draft or extended abstract of the paper in PDF format to
