The Journal of Economics and Finance Education (JEFE) is an electronic journal of the Academy of Economics and Finance (AEF). Its inaugural edition was published in Winter, 2002. JEFE is a general interest publication, which targets articles in the area of economic and finance education. JEFE invites economic and finance contributions in three main areas: research, instruction, and content. The journal encourages empirical and methodological contributions and will entertain theoretical articles in some instances. The principal criteria for acceptance are (a) the paper's overall quality, (b) its contribution to the fields of economics or finance education, and (c) its potential usefulness to the general interest reader. The manuscript or parts of it must not have been previously published or submitted elsewhere while under review by JEFE. The editors need to be notified upon submission if an article with similar content has been or will be published in another journal!
JEFE discourages theoretical articles that are limited to axiomatics or that discuss minor variations of familiar models. Similarly, JEFE has little interest in empirical papers that do not explain the model's theoretical foundations or that exhausts themselves in applying a new or established technique (such as cointegration) to another data set without providing very good reasons why this research is important.
Articles are subject to a double-blind refereeing process after they pass an initial screening by the editors. Authors of theoretical papers need to be willing to supply the details of their derivations to reviewers. Authors of empirical papers have to be willing to supply their data and key program input files if so requested by the referees.
While the advice, scholarship and information in this journal are believed to be true and accurate at the date of its publication, neither the authors, the editors nor the publisher can accept any legal responsibility for any errors or omissions that may be made. The publisher makes no warranty, express or implied, with respect to the material contained herein. Nor do the views expressed in the articles published herein reflect those of either the Editors and their Instutions or the Academy of Economics and Finance.
