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 twice a year, the journal incorporates six peer-reviewed academic articles covering the full spectrum of the financial planning profession, with Griffith University providing the editorial services.

Financial planning research JOURNAL awards

The Financial Planning Research Journal (FPRJ), published by Griffith University on behalf of the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) launched three new research awards in 2019.

The new awards are part of ongoing initiatives by FPRJ to provide an academic platform to discuss issues around personal financial planning and wealth management, changes in the financial planning industry, and the notion of professionalism in personal finance within Australia.
