Indian Journal of Finance and Banking (IJFB) is an open-access journal that publishes research analysis and inquiry into contemporary issues of finance, banking, and accounting.
Double-Blind Peer Review
IJFB uses a double-blind review, which means the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa. To facilitate this, please include the following separately:
Title page (with author details): This should include the title, author's names, affiliations, acknowledgements, any Declaration of Interest statement, and a complete address for the corresponding author including an e-mail address.
Main document (without author details): The main body of the paper (including the references, figures, tables, and any acknowledgements) should not include any identifying information, such as the author's names or affiliations.
Types of Paper
Regular Research Article: This should describe new and/or carefully investigated findings, and research methods should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. Articles should be 5,000 - 10,000 words long to describe and interpret the work clearly. All regular research articles are peer-reviewed by a minimum of 3 referees.
Short Communication Article: This short communication is suitable for reporting the results of small investigations or giving details of new models, innovative methods, or techniques. The style of the main sections doesn’t need to conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications should be usually 3,000~5,000 words long. Short communication articles are also peer-reviewed.
