The International Journal of Central Banking (IJCB) invites submissions of full-length articles, shorter articles or "notes", and comments on previously published work (with authors' replies).

The journal's primary objectives are to disseminate widely the best policy-relevant and applied research on central banking and to promote communication among researchers both inside and outside of central banks. The editors welcome manuscripts for consideration from central bank staff and other researchers.

  • macroeconomics
  • monetary economics
  • econometric modeling
  • finance and capital markets
  • banking and financial intermediation
  • analysis of payments systems
  • prudential regulation and supervision

On occasion, the journal may also commission surveys of important developing areas of research.
