Folia Oeconomica Stetinensia

The Journal of University of Szczecin

Open access

Folia Oeconomica Stetinensia (FOS) is a journal that publishes research results in all economic fields. The aim of this journal is to become the source of high quality research related to finance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics and other fields of economics. Also, we assist researchers from Europe and from other regions where English is not the mother tongue, e.g. native English speaking researchers polish up the language of articles submitted to FOS. Nevertheless, contributions from other parts of the world are by no means excluded. All authors receive very fast and comprehensive peer-review.
The FOS is peer-reviewed and is published semi-annually in electronic and paper version. The language of the journal is English. FOS publishes research and review articles.
