Dr. Manuel Ramos Francia, Director General, CEMLA

"I am delighted by the response of our central banks’ community to this project. It has been nothing short of remarkable. We see this journal as a key vehicle of communication for the central banks in Latin America and the Caribbean. I believe that there is untapped research potential in and around the region, and the journal will make sure to leverage it."

Dr. Manuel Ramos-Francia, CEMLA’s Director General and LAJCB Editor-in-Chief


Aims and scope

The Latin American Journal of Central Banking (LAJCB) publishes high-quality research on topics that are of keen interest to central banks and associated financial regulatory and supervisory agencies. The LAJCB covers traditional topics such as monetary theory and policy, exchange rates, and international finance. It also includes topics that have gained prominence more recently, such as financial stability, climate change as it relates to financial systems, financial market infrastructures and technologies. Going forward, it could reassess their relative relevance and consider completely new ones.

The LAJCB publishes theoretical and empirical papers, as well as policy papers. The latter are targeted to those policy makers that have considerable expertise in their fields, but perhaps face significant time constraints.

Its papers are not only by researchers in central banks and associated regulatory and supervisory agencies of CEMLA in Latin America, the Caribbean and the rest of the world but, in addition, by those in academia, international financial bodies and others that have a profound interest in the aforementioned topics.

The Latin American Journal of Central Banking is a continuous and open access publication
