source 17th Annual European Real Estate Society Conference in Milan, Italy
summary The aim of the Journal of Property Investment and Finance is to keep industry practitioners informed on current thinking and developments in all aspects of real estate research and practice by informing and encourage debate between academics and practising professionals. To achieve this aim the Journal seeks to: “publish well-written, readable articles of intellectual rigour with a theoretical and practical relevance to the real estate profession.” But some papers are likely to be more difficult to understand that others and may not be effective if the reader is unable to completely comprehend the contents. Thus, the readability of academic papers has a major effect on how well the reader is informed by the articles appearing in the journal. However, nothing is known about the readability of real estate journals. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a study that analysed the readability of academic papers in one such journal, the Journal of Property Investment and Finance.
