More on this journal...

The objective of IJBD is to communicate the complexities and intricacies of both bonds and derivatives to policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions, and persons concerned with the complex role of fixed income investing and currency management. It also aims to explore areas that have not been explored before by focusing on the international implications of different types of bonds including Islamic bonds (Sukuk), sovereign debt and the overall impact on policy-making in an international perspective. IJBD aims to develop a leading role in the field by consciously connecting research in the field through a series of conferences and other initiatives.


IJBD's intended audience includes researchers from universities, professional analysts, government officials, foreign exchange traders, risk management professionals, fixed income investors and worldwide bond funds investors and managers.


IJBD publishes high quality original research papers, review papers and suitably-revised conference papers. Papers may be empirically or theoretically based, but must explain clearly and lucidly the implications for public policy or market performance.
