The Journal of Blockchain Research (JBR) is a peer-reviewed journal aiming to disseminate leading-edge research and discussions of blockchain technology. Its goal is to publish rigorous, innovative, insightful work of theories and applications related to blockchain technology. In order to facilitate the interdisciplinary nature of the blockchain research, the journal’s editorial team includes experts working in several different areas of research.

JBR seeks previously unpublished papers on various blockchain-related research with solid grounding in the following (non-exhaustively listed) areas: statistics, computer science and engineering, economics and finance, network science, cognitive and behavioral science, operational research, business analytics, game theory, mechanism design, social choice and social consensus, trust and certification, etc.
