CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


Founded in 1987, the Revue d’économie financière (REF) deals with all subjects related to financial economics in the broadest sense: banking economics, corporate finance, market finance, financial history, monetary policy, international finance, etc. It offers a plurality of points of view thanks to the diversity of the authors it hosts.

It publishes four issues per year. Each issue includes a thematic dossier composed of about ten articles, a review section, a financial history column and various articles submitted spontaneously to the journal. The thematic dossiers are produced under the direction of two pilots chosen by the editorial board for their expertise in the subject. The pilots design the content of the dossier, contact the authors and supervise the scientific quality.

The articles submitted must correspond to the editorial line and meet commonly accepted scientific requirements. They are subject to a double-blind refereeing process. The referees are appointed according to the topics covered. The editorial staff ensures that submissions are processed as quickly as possible and informs authors of the progress of the process.

The articles published must be readable by professionals, researchers and academics who are not necessarily specialists in the issues addressed. For this reason, mathematical formalisation should be kept to a minimum.

The world of finance is largely internationalised. For this reason, the REF is particularly keen to address international themes and to encourage the increasing participation of foreign authors. Whenever the topic lends itself to it, it publishes an English version.
