Financial Planning Research Journal

In 2015, we collaborated with Griffith Business School to launch the Financial Planning Research Journal, Australia’s first academic journal dedicated to financial planning.

This publication is very important for the financial planning profession. It provides a focal point for research around financial planning that is used to inform debate and policy, and ultimately raise standards across the profession.

Published online via the Sciendo website, the journal incorporates peer-reviewed academic articles covering the full spectrum of the financial planning profession, with Griffith University and Western Sydney University providing the editorial services.
