Letter from the Editor

Dear colleagues,

I am happy to introduce the first 2018 issue of the Russian Journal of Money and Finance — not just this year’s first but first in its new form. In changing the journal’s concept we aim to enhance its scholarly component and to improve the quality of publications by giving preference to articles reporting the results of original research. This has meant introducing a considerably more thorough article selection and reviewing process.

We have set the goal of publishing only high-level research that is of interest to all experts in macroeconomics and finance. This academic journal seeks to promote research in macroeconomics and finance in emerging markets and to further economic science in Russia by acquainting Russian scholars with the latest developments in the world economics, particularly in the areas directly related to central banks’ mandate. The journal is now also published in English because we wish to give the international audience an idea of the Russian researchers’ results and development of their research.

To what extent we have achieved this in the first issue of this renovated journal is certainly for our readers to judge. But I am pleased to note that this issue features high-quality studies by Russian and foreign researchers on contemporary subjects for monetary policy in Russia and throughout the world, as well as papers analyzing the situation in the Russian banking sector.

Ksenia Yudaeva
First Deputy Governor of the Bank of Russia
