Focus & Scope

Our journal encourages the dissemination of scientific articles, research reports, reviews, and commentaries focusing on the study of financial systems.

The International Journal of Financial Systems, with electronic International Standard Serial Number (E-ISSN) and print International Standard Serial Number (P-ISSN), is a semiannual publication organised by the dedicated Editorial Board. It is a global platform committed to contributing to our understanding of financial systems and their development.


Financial systems form the backbone of modern economies, comprising a complex network of institutions, markets, regulations, and instruments that facilitate the efficient allocation of resources, risk management, and economic growth. Given the increasingly interconnected nature of our global economy, studying financial systems has become imperative for individuals, organisations, and policymakers alike.

The development of financial systems is an ongoing process influenced by a myriad of factors, including technological advancements, regulatory frameworks, and changing market dynamics. Over time, financial systems have evolved from traditional, localised models to globalised, technology-driven ecosystems. Innovations such as digital banking, mobile payments, blockchain technology, and algorithmic trading have revolutionised financial transactions, reshaping the landscape of financial systems.

Research on financial systems holds immense importance, as it delves into the intricacies and complexities associated with these systems. By examining various facets such as financial institutions, markets, instruments, regulatory frameworks, and risk management practices, researchers contribute to our understanding of how financial systems function, their efficiency, and their stability. Policymakers rely on this research to formulate effective regulations and policies that promote stability, enhance resilience, and mitigate systemic risks within financial systems.

Furthermore, practitioners in the field of finance, including bankers, financial analysts, investment managers, and policymakers, benefit greatly from research on financial systems. These insights enable them to make informed decisions, manage risks effectively, and develop strategies that foster financial intermediation, sustainable economic growth, and financial inclusion.
