Advances in Monetary and
Financial Measurement (AMFM)
The Center for Financial Stability
(CFS) would like to encourage dissemination of research in this area
through peer-reviewed publications, as well as in the popular media.
This section provides information on highly-qualified publishers recommended
for research submissions in this area.
William A. Barnett is on the editorial
boards of the following three peer-reviewed publications, which are
well qualified to review submissions in the area of aggregation-theoretic
monetary and financial aggregation. The first of the three, being
an open access, new startup, would be the most receptive at the present
time and is recommended for applied research submissions on Divisia
monetary and financial aggregation.
- The New MDPI Open Access
Journal, International Journal of Financial Studies: William A. Barnett is a member of the
editorial board of the new open source journal, International Journal of Financial Studies, published quarterly,
starting in 2012, by MDPI Publishing in Basel, Switzerland (Multidisciplinary
Digital Publishing Institute).
Although International Journal of Financial Studies is a new startup, MDPI has an eminent track
record of open-access journal publication in the physical sciences,
with the editorial boards of its journals including many Nobel Laureates.
Since International Journal of Financial Studies publishes solely online, the publisher does not
impose a space constraint on pages published per issue, and there is
no constraint on the length of submitted papers. Applied research
relevant to Advances in Monetary and Financial Measurement are welcome
for submission. There is a submission fee, but it will be refunded
if the submission is rejected.
Professor Barnett has agreed to handle submissions to International Journal of Financial Studies
only on the subject of “Divisia Monetary Aggregation” or “Divisia
Financial Aggregation.” He has agreed to this editorial role as a
means of assisting in publication of research relevant to this program
at the CFS. The submission procedure requires provision of keywords
identifying the nature of the submission. If you would like your
submission to be handled by Professor Barnett, you should use “Divisia
Monetary Aggregation” or “Divisia Financial Aggregation” as keyword
phrases and preferably also in some form within the title of your paper.
You may also wish to state your preference in your submission cover
letter. If your submission does not fit the objectives of this
CFS program, Professor Barnett will decline to handle the submission,
which will be assigned to one of the journal’s other editorial board
Since this journal is open access, the journal’s published articles
are in the public domain. With suitable acknowledgement of the
articles’ source in the journal, International Journal of Financial Studies, the CFS can put online
in its library any articles published in that journal.
- The Cambridge University
Press Journal, Macroeconomic Dynamics:
William A. Barnett is Founder and Editor of the Cambridge University
Press journal, Macroeconomic Dynamics. While this
journal is well qualified to consider submissions in this area, Macroeconomic
Dynamics is a long-established journal with very high standards,
including a rejection rate of over 90% and a very long publication queue
at Cambridge University Press. The journal’s focus is high-tech
with very demanding peer-review standards. Submission to that
journal is recommended only for major research meeting the standards
of the economics profession’s most esteemed journals.
Cambridge University Press owns the copyright of all articles published
in that journal. As a result, articles published in Macroeconomic
Dynamics are available in final published form only to the journal’s
subscribers. The CFS cannot put online in its library any complete articles as published in that journal.
- The Emerald Press Monograph
Series, ISETE: William A. Barnett is Founder and Editor
of the Emerald Press monograph series, International Symposia in
Economic Theory and Econometrics (ISETE). As
with the journal, Macroeconomic Dynamics, the ISETE monograph
series publishes high-end research and has a reputation for being the
successor to the previous, eminent monograph series, The Berkeley
Symposia in Mathematical Statistics and Probability.
Unlike the journal, Macroeconomic Dynamics, which is subject
to budgeted space-constraints from its publisher, ISETE can publish
longer articles and thicker volumes by determining the price of the
book upon completion. Hence the demands on authors are less severe
than for submissions to Macroeconomic Dynamics. Because
of ISETE’s ability to adjust price, based upon volume size,
ISETE can accommodate conference proceedings volumes, if of suitably
high quality. Organizers of a conference, if relevant to the objectives
of this CFS program, may wish to contact Professor Barnett about the
possibility of a proceedings volume in the ISETE monograph series.
Emerald Press owns the copyright of all chapters of books published
in the ISETE monograph series. As a result, articles published
in ISETE are available in final published form only to purchasers
of the books or to institutional subscribers to the monograph series.
The CFS cannot put online in its library any complete articles as published in those books.
