Dear all,

I want to make you aware of a newly-opened special issue titled ‘Recent developments in financial literacy and financial education’. The special issue, to be published in the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Finance, will be edited by Annamaria Lusardi (The George Washington University), Tim Kaiser (University of Koblenz-Landau and German Institute for Economic Research) and myself.

This special issue will collect innovative work in both financial literacy and financial education research. We particularly welcome submission of papers addressing the following topics:

  • Experimental and quasi-experimental impact evaluations of financial education programs (e.g., in primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, workplaces, or online)
  • Behavioral lab or lab-in-the-field experiments testing mediation effects of financial literacy on behaviors
  • Empirical research documenting the causal effect of financial literacy on investment behavior and outcomes
  • Observational studies addressing potential endogeneity of financial literacy through novel identification strategies (such as new instrumental variables or new econometric models)
  • Papers studying measurement models and survey questions measuring financial literacy, including international surveys and knowledge of specific topics (taxes, pensions, etc). 

The deadline for paper submissions is June 30, 2021. Articles will be published in the journal upon acceptance like regular articles and will thus not have to wait for the entire special issue to be compiled. In addition to publication in regular journal issues, articles will also be published together in a virtual special issue, available both online and for print-on-demand.

Please find the full call for papers attached and online.

We look forward to your submissions! Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Stefan Palan

Associate Professor, Department of Banking and Finance, University of Graz
