Professor Bruce Burton introduces the journal.


In addition to peer-reviewed articles, the journal publishes in-depth case studies with real relevance to practice, along with extended book reviews. The Editor also explicitly encourages submission of methodological studies regarding the use of qualitative methods in finance research.

Empirical studies making use of interview, case study and survey methods to investigate the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics are welcomed (in all cases, evidence regarding investor, corporate and/or regulator views and experiences may be relevant):

All Articles, case studies and book reviews can now be submitted via ScholarOne Manuscripts. For details on how to do this please see the author guidelines.



It is intended that the focus on employment of qualitative analysis will render the journal more accessible to finance practitioners than many traditional quantitative-based finance publications.
