Aims and Scope

Research in Finance seeks to provide a collection of quality research articles that reflect the current and primary issues in financial markets. Contributions include finance theory and financial practice, plus accounting issues such as reporting derivatives positions, reflecting intangible holdings, or predicting financial distress.

Themed issues may also be guest edited to provide quality insight into important areas of current financial research.

Research in Finance has the ability to absorb works that are longer than a standard journal article, yet shorter than a monograph. Research in Finance also publishes and welcomes doctoral dissertations. Manuscripts are peer reviewed by internal and external academic experts and comments are sent back to authors within two months.

Research in Finance accepts both submissions of manuscripts and proposals for themed issues. If you wish to contribute, or to submit a proposal, please contact the editor, Professor John Kensinger, at For proposal forms please contact Charlotte Maiorana :

The volume reviews trends in bank deposits around North Dakota's Bakken Formation oil reserves and analyzes regulatory uncertainties undermining real estate investment. It includes studies of corporate governance and firm performance for companies listed on the Indian and Dhaka Stock Exchanges, how  executives manage dividend growth in companies included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the NASDAQ Index (with data from 1989 into 2011). It also includes anlysis of systemic risk and financial contagion in Morocco, hedge fund performance and share price response to operating cash flow in corporate bankruptcies. In the quantitative arena we have an application of the IZO Model (using a principal component approach), and improved empirical estimation of option volatility.
