Aims & Scope

The Journal of Student Financial Aid (JSFA) is a peer-reviewed outlet featuring works of significance in all areas of postsecondary student financial assistance. Our mission is to bring scholarly work to bear on the practice and theory of providing financial assistance to students pursuing postsecondary education. We invite the submission of manuscripts that report original research findings, editorial opinions on policy issues, and book reviews. We encourage submissions from diverse methodological and conceptual perspectives with implications for the practice of financial aid administration. Although the principle focus of NASFAA and the JSFA has historically been on issues of importance to aid administration in the United States, we welcome submissions focusing on any region or topic that is relevant to the mission of the JSFA. Regardless of the form or focus of the submission, we require all authors to include a specific, concluding section titled 'Implications for Practice," in keeping with the mission of the Journal.

NASFAA is currently seeking volunteers to serve as Peer Reviewers for one-year terms with potential for renewal. Peer Reviewers comprise the Editorial Board for NASFAA’s Journal of Student Financial Aid, and review manuscripts for publication. Learn more about the Peer Reviewer position, and apply by completing the volunteer form by Friday, May 29, 2015.
