About our Journals:

The Journal of Financial Education (JFEd) and Advances in Financial Education (AFEd) are the premier scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) journals in the field of academic finance. Both journals have a deep and rich history. The Journal of Financial Education has been publishing quality academic research papers since 1973. Advances in Financial Education was established as a second outlet for finance education research in 2003.

JFEd and AFEd are refereed journals dedicated to encouraging and publishing research designed to improve the quality of finance education at the post-secondary level. The main focus of these journals is to promote excellence in finance education worldwide. More specifically, JFEd and AFEd:

  1. Offer those engaged in quality SoTL finance education research two different leading academic journals in which to publish their work.
  2. Provide educators a resource to learn about and remain current in the best practices of finance education.
  3. Act as a vehicle for educators to exchange ideas and reflect on the practice of finance education with the ultimate goal of improving student learning outcomes.

JFEd and AFEd welcome manuscript submissions from educators and/or practitioners in the field of finance, as well as adjacent fields of study (e.g., accounting and economics), who seek to discuss and empirically evaluate teaching and learning techniques, processes, materials, and programs. Submission of research evaluating all forms of pedagogy in a variety of media, including face-to-face, hybrid, online, flipped, etc., is encouraged. In addition, JFEd publishes finance case studies that educators can use (free of charge) in their classes. All cases include access to complete, detailed teaching notes (available on this website to subscribers of the journal).

All papers must be submitted via Scholastica. Submitting authors are expected to carefully follow the guidelines for submission for all articles. All submitted manuscripts undergo a double-blind rigorous review. The journal editors will make the final accept/reject decision for all manuscripts. For all accepted papers, the editors will decide in which publication the article will appear.
