Publication Opportunities

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.

  1. 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 members.

    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.
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. 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.
