Motivation: The editor stated in his rejection letter that "The manuscript does not fit the scope of JIMF." On journal's website, it is however highlighted that "journal devoted to theoretical and empirical research in the fields of international monetary economics, international finance,..." My paper contained both theoretical and empirical analysis on international finance. Based on Journal of Economic Literature classification, which is used in the profession to classify fields in economics, my paper very well fits the scope of JIMF. I found the editor decision arbitrary and baseless, not to mention it took three months for him to decide my paper does not fit this journal.
