Editor’s Reports

Editorial Report
Multinational Finance Journal
-- Period January 2014 - December 2015 --


This report briefly summarizes the activity of the Multinational Finance Journal (MFJ) over the period January 2014 - December 2015.

Overall, this period has been a successful one for the journal, especially since its impact factor for 2015 has increased to 1.38 from 0.71 in 2014 and 0.63 in 2013. The journal’s impact factor in 2012 it was 0.38.

During this period, MFJ has seen 45 first-time submissions, while 17 papers were already in the editorial process from submissions prior to January 2014. Out of the newly submitted manuscripts, 20 were rejected in the first round and 16 were invited for revision and resubmission. During that period, ten manuscripts were accepted for publication and 16 papers have been published.

Only approximately 13% of the total manuscripts submitted were accepted for publication, and more than half of these required more than two rounds of revisions. This is indicative of the increasing quality of MFJ publications and the thoroughness of the review process. The stringency of the review process is further illustrated by the fact that even after an initial round of revisions more than 20% of those manuscripts were rejected.

The organizational quality of the review process has been strong. Specifically, more than 85% of all papers were processed in four months or less, and fewer than 5% of manuscripts were under review for six months or more. This translates to a mean (median) review period of 84 (82) days.

The managing teaming with the invaluable contributions of all members of the Editorial Board is committed to publishing original, high-quality theoretical and empirical articles across all the major fields of finance and economics, placing emphasis on the internationality of the research.

All efforts of the managing team aim to increase the visibility and impact of the journal. In this respect, MFJ is currently abstracted/indexed in: Google Scholar, GrossRef, EBSCO, ABS Academic Journal Quality Guide, Research Papers in Economics (RePEc), and Social Science Research Network (SSRN).
