Scope Cogent Economics & Finance, part of Taylor & Francis / Routledge, is a multidisciplinary open access journal publishing high-quality peer-reviewed research by authors from across the globe. Our inclusive nature ensures we cover the entire scope of economics and finance research – from financial economics to economic philosophy and everything in between, including replication studies – and we make sure this research is visible to everyone, anywhere, any time. Cogent Economics & Finance is headed up by an expert team of Senior Editors who, in keeping with our vision of inclusivity and sharing, evaluate submissions on scholarly merit and research integrity.
