Because Emerging Markets Finance and Trade is experiencing an increasing number of submissions and in order to continue to provide authors with timely decisions on their manuscripts, Emerging Markets Finance and Trade has implemented a new expedited review policy. All submitted papers are pre-screened by the Editor and an Editorial Board member. Those papers determined to be clearly not suitable for publication in EMFT due to inappropriate subject matter, insufficient contribution to the field, lack of clarity of exposition, etc., will be rejected by the editor without being sent to referees and the submission fee will not be reimbursed. Papers that pass this initial screening process will be sent to sent to referees for evaluation. Passing this initial screening does not guarantee that the article will be accepted for publication. Authors are advised to read the aims and scope of the journal before submitting their work for publication. If you are unsure as to the nature of papers suitable for publication, please glance through the past issues of EMFT at http://www.tandfonline.com/mree
to better understand EMFT’s standards and interests.
