"Emerging Markets Finance & Trade is a venerable journal that has been re-energized. It focuses on the issues that are most important to emerging markets -- trade and trade policy and financial markets and flows. Under its new editors it will surely be an important forum for research and policy discussion in these areas." -Paul Wachtel, Stern School of Business, New York University

"Emerging Markets Finance & Trade is the most comprehensive journal in its coverage of different regions of the developing world. The articles are mostly policy-oriented, yet they utilize the most recent advances in economic theory and econometrics. The journal broadens our understanding of trade issues and financial developments in developing countries." -Mohsen Bahmani-Oskooee, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

"An important group of developing economies have begun to 'emerge' in recent years, on the back of strong growth performances driven by a more business oriented economic, financial and institutional environment. The journal Emerging Markets Finance & Trade is essential reading for students of these economies, with leading edge papers on the central topics of relevance to the performance of such countries. With a focus on financial markets and international trade in emerging markets, and a large selection of empirical and applied papers specifically focused to emerging markets, the journal fills a very important space for researchers in finance, trade, and development economics." -Saul Estrin, Department of Management, London School of Economics

"The analysis of the economic challenges faced by emerging markets has increasingly been attracting attention in the economic profession. This journal provides an important forum for high-quality research on these issues." -Carmen M. Reinhart, University of Maryland
