Future Economic Lab Journal invites submissions in all areas of finance and economics. Future Economic Lab Journal offers and ensures the rapid publication of important new results in these areas. We aim to provide a rapid response to papers, with all scientific articles undergoing a desk review by one of the Editors in Chief before being sent for external review.

Peer Review Process
This journal operates a single blind review process. Submitted papers are first considered by one of the two Editors-in-Chief. Papers that are not desk rejected are sent out to at least one referee. Normally, at least one review is needed before the appointed Editor-in-Chief can make a decision as to whether to accept, reject, or ask for a revision of the submitted paper.
You can use this list to carry out a final check of your submission before you send it to the journal for review.
Ensure that the following items have been uploaded:
Title Page (Essential title page information: Title; Author names and affiliations; Abstract; Keywords; Corresponding author; Present/permanent address)
Manuscript (The manuscript should have been ‘spell checked’ and ‘grammar checked’)
Tables (Including titles, description, footnotes)
Figures (Including relevant captions)
References (All references mentioned in the References should be cited in the text, and vice versa. References can be in any style or format as long as the style is consistent. Use of DOI is highly encouraged.)
Cover Letter (Explaining the suggested aims and scope of the paper)
The use of Times New Roman font with font size at 12 is highly suggested. There are no strict formatting requirements, but all manuscripts must contain the essential elements needed to convey your article. Please ensure the text of your paper is double-spaced – this is an essential peer review requirement.
It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors assign copyright to the Future Economic Lab Journal. Thus, requests from third parties to reproduce articles can be dealt with efficiently allowing the article to be widely disseminated. In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in other publications provided that the Journal is acknowledged as the original place of publication.
