CALL FOR PAPERS: New challenges for the future of Italian and European banks: tackling unprecedented regulatory and market issues


The 2017 MBF Conference is offered in partnership with:

Journal of Financial Stability (JFS), will invite the authors of select Conference papers to submit their manuscripts to the JFS. Although there is no special issue associated with the Conference, the editorial team of the journal will ensure the selected papers undergo a fast-track review process while maintaining the otherwise regular editorial, refereeing, and revision standards of the journal. This special consideration is granted in light of the anticipated high caliber of the papers in the Conference program.

Economic Notes (EN) invites MBF Conference attendees to submit papers that fall in the domain of the journal –  macro, money, finance and banking  – ensuring them that there will be a fast-track procedure for replies. EN normally gives the first feedback within three months and under the MBF fast-track that will be shortened to two months. EN strives to provide a forum for open discussion on issues relating to macro, money, finance and banking. Over the years, the MBF Conference has provided a constant high quality flow of submissions to EN and its editors are sure the tradition will continue with the 2017 edition.

Rivista Bancaria-Minerva Bancaria (RBMB) offers the opportunity to go through a fast-track reviewing process (6 weeks). Authors will not be charged by any submission fee for the Journal. In addition, papers related to the Italian and European banking sectors, from both a regulatory and a market perspective (e.g. changes in European banking regulation and supervision, the impact of the structural decline in interest rates term structure on bank profitability and the challenges coming from the new trends in the banking sector consolidation process) can be submitted to a specific Conference session organized by the Journal: the papers admitted to this special session are eligible for the RBMB Best Research Paper Award.
