Introducing: The Journal of Financial Technology
I am excited to be part of the founding editorial board of a new academic journal: The Journal of Financial Technology.
The JFT is a free and open-access academic journal founded to provide a quality venue to promote and develop fintech as an academic field. It will bring together mathematics, statistics, computer science, finance, and law. Publication is open-access, and authors retain copyright.
The JFT welcomes submissions for Volume I, Issue 1! Submission instructions are here.
Financial technology is reshaping our financial system in important ways, bringing both benefits and risks. Fintech sits at the intersection of many academic disciplines, requiring contributions from each of the fields it brings together. The JFT now offers a dedicated forum to facilitate this multidisciplinary discussion.
I am thrilled to work with a stellar Editorial Board, including leading computer scientists, mathematicians, cryptographers, and finance scholars from around the world.
