Author Guidelines

Article Structure
Typical structure of an article submitted to ERFIN Journal:

  1. Title page should contain:
    - title (concise and informative),
    - abstract (concise and factual; it should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions; it shouldn't include references),
    - keywords (a maximum of 6 keywords, no abbreviations),
    - classification codes (up to 6 standard JEL codes).

Author(s) names (given names and family names), author(s) affiliations (institution and country name), and the corresponding author information (e-mail address) should NOT be included in the paper to ensure a double-blind review process. They should be saved in the submission system instead.

  1. Main text should include:
    - introduction (stating objectives of the work, presenting adequate background, possible literature review and a short summary of results),
    - literature review,
    - methodology (detailed explanation),
    - results and discussion (clear and concise, results including robustness check),
    - conclusions.
  2. Acknowledgements should be added as a separate section after the conclusions and before the references.
  3. References
  4. Tables
  5. Figures
  6. Appendices

Style and Formatting
We use American Psychological Association's (APA) style of citation and writing, which requires in-text references (usually author and year) and a list of references located at the end of the paper. All references mentioned in the reference list (References) should be cited in the text and vice versa. 

The text should be double-spaced with 12pt font. Authors should use italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses) and place all illustrations, figures, and tables within the text rather than at the end.
