How to publish in this journal


The Public Finance Quarterly pursues the primary goal of providing a credible picture on the financial systems, the main features of the operations of public sector and national economy, the efforts to catch up with economically developed countries and build future and on the related professional debates. Other goals are to achieve that the professional results published in our periodical are utilized as much as possible, promote the spreading of a better financial culture, provide solid foundations for decision-making in the fields of finance and economic policy, and contribute to good governance. Primarily, we publish in the periodical articles analyzing monetary and fiscal policies from a theoretical or empirical point of view. Likewise, we welcome practical assessments, analyses on financial and accounting issues that were prepared by using Hungarian or international databanks. Articles presenting novelties in financial instruments, derivatives, accounting techniques (of corporations/national accounts alike) or introducing how to calculate the yield and risk of financial investments, securities, loans or scrutinizing the development of financial sector (e.g. that of the Stock Exchange, money market) in a macroeconomic context are also well received. Public Finance Quarterly intends to expand the scope of financial knowledge in Hungary through publishing the most up-to-date theories, approaches. Therefore, we are also awaiting articles on financial mathematics, or studies that belong professionally to the forefront and introduce the latest financial innovations, techniques. The bibliography reviews included in the periodical on recently published books serve the same purpose.
