The Journal of Banking and Finance is a peer-reviewed academic journal covering research on financial institutions, capital markets, and topics in investments and corporate finance. In 1989 the journal absorbed Studies in Banking & Finance. A 2011 study ranked it among six elite finance journals.[1][2] However, in 2012 the journal was also listed as one of the top 10 offenders in a practice called "coercive citation", wherein publishers manipulate their impact factors to artificially boost their academic reputation.[3][4]
