Letter from the Editor

Dear colleagues,

I am happy to introduce the Russian Journal of Money and Finance in its new format. In changing the journal’s concept we aim to enhance its scholarly component and to improve the quality of publications by giving preference to articles reporting the results of original research. This has meant introducing a considerably more thorough article selection and reviewing process. We have set the goal of publishing only high-level research that is of interest to all experts in macroeconomics and finance. 

This academic journal seeks to promote research in macroeconomics and finance in emerging markets and to further economic science in Russia by acquainting Russian scholars with the latest developments in the world economics, particularly in the areas directly related to central banks’ mandate. The journal is now also published in English because we wish to give the international audience an idea of the Russian researchers’ results and development of their research.  

To what extent we have achieved this is for our readers to judge. 

Ksenia Yudaeva
