Asia–Pacific Journal of Financial Studies (AJFS) invites manuscripts for a special issue on“Advances in International Finance in Emerging Markets” and related issues, scheduled for publication in 2020. AJFS became the first finance journal published in Asia-Pacific region covered by the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) in 2006.

This special issue aims to bring finance theory and empirical research in emerging markets to the forefront of international finance. International finance plays a crucial role in improving emerging markets’ access to international financial services, allowing infrastructure investment and development, stimulating foreign direct investment and global trade flows, promoting entrepreneurship, increasing risk sharing and diversification, and improving liquidity in their financial systems. This issue therefore focuses on innovative research that develops a better understanding of the importance of international finance in emerging markets. In particular, it emphasizes any issue related to financial and economic policies, institutions, investors, corporate executives, and corporations in emerging markets, as well as research that identifies important questions about emerging markets and how firms in developed countries relate to those markets and to their firms.


While this special issue welcomes submissions from a wide range of perspectives, preferably in Asia-Pacific financial markets, the following are some examples of possible research topics:

   -   Corporate governance practices
Socially responsible firms and firm performance
  -   Stock return and risk dynamics
