New submissions submitted on or after September 2, 2016 must comply with the Code Sharing Policy. The Code Sharing Policy FAQ provides further explanations. Any authors who do not agree to the foregoing policies should not submit their papers to the JF.
To avoid delays, please follow the submission requirements carefully. The editor will not see your paper until these requirements are met:
When you have followed all the submission requirements above, you can submit a new paper to The Journal of Finance by clicking here. Revisions must conform to the same requirements (with the exception of the Code Sharing policy if the initial first-round submission was before September 2, 2016). To submit a revision, click here and select "Resubmission" in Step 2.
Click here for lists of economies by income level. Please note: To qualify for a fee waiver or reduced fee, all authors of the submission must currently reside in a low- or middle-income-economy country.
Submission fees will be paid via credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) as part of the submission procedure.
Authors with reviewing credits can use those to pay all or part of the fee. (To inquire about your reviewing account balance, please email Wendy Washburn at email@example.com.)
Return/Refund Policy: The submission fee will be refunded if the editorial decision on a submission is rendered more than 100 days after the receipt of the submission by the editorial office. This refund policy applies only to a manuscript's first submission. The fee will also be refunded if the submission receives a desk rejection.
