About the Journal

Asia Pacific  Journal of Finance and Banking Research (APJFBR) is an annual, peer-reviewed research journal that provides a publication outlet for practical and theoretical issues related to the Asia Pacific region in the areas of finance and banking issues such as developments in the financial markets, depository and non depository financial institutions, stock valuations and market efficiency, capital budgeting, risk and return; challenges in financial planning, forecasting, challenges in corporate financial evaluations, cash flows, exchange rate problems in international business and foreign investments all against the background of economic developments and regulatory issues (country specific, regional and global). This journal is interested in country or industry specific issues that relate to finance and banking. The recovery of the Asian stock markets since the Asian financial crisis, regulatory changes and their impact on stock market performance, FDI flows are among researchable topics that will be accommodated by this journal. The APJFBR attempts to encourage scholars, academicians and professionals to engage more in global research, especially in Asia Pacific-related research and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. While the management of this journal expects well researched and written articles to be submitted for review, no article will be rejected on the grounds of technicality as long as authors are willing to work with editors. The journal welcomes manuscript submissions from scholars everywhere. Each manuscript is normally double peer reviewed and must not have been previously accepted for publication or review elsewhere. The Editor-In-Chief relies upon the evaluation reports provided by the reviewers, the originality and relevance of the ideas addressed in the article and the possible contribution to Asia Pacific development, in deciding whether to accept the manuscript for publication. Re-examination of issues already discussed in finance literature is accepted especially if it involves significant updates of prior documented discourse. The stance of this journal on this is based on the observed constant changing nature of the present global economy and most importantly most importantly on the fact that developments in the areas of banking and finance have never been static. This journal publishes both empirical and conceptual research.


Researchers, graduate students, and bureaucrats, practitioners and all interested in Asia Pacific.
