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, Dr. Rita Biswas, at [email protected]. For proposal forms please contact Charlotte Maiorana : [email protected]
