Submission guidelines

Updated: September 2023

Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the submission has been approved by all of the authors and that the submission is not currently under review at another publication.

The International Journal of Central Banking accepts electronic submissions only. There is no submission fee.

Manuscripts must be written in English and should be submitted with a concise abstract.

Submissions should be double-spaced, except for references, footnotes, and legends, which should be single-spaced.

Tables and figures should be collected at the end of the manuscript. When preparing tables and figures, authors should also keep in mind the size of the Journal (6" x 9") and the fact that very large tables and figures may be difficult to portray in this format.

The Journal does not normally publish manuscripts longer than 40 pages, including references, tables and figures.

All manuscript files should be double-spaced. Portable Document Format files (PDF) are preferred. However, you may also submit online in MS Word (DOC), WordPerfect (WPD), or as files produced using LaTeX (TEX). 

Abstract instructions

Authors should place the abstract on the title page of the manuscript. The abstract should be an overview of the manuscript, including JEL codes, but excluding references and equations. Please limit the abstract to 100 words.
