We are honored to be appointed as the new editors of the Financial Review – and we are looking forward to working with our excellent editorial board to continue to advance the Financial Review as a high quality general finance journal. We would also like to express our gratitude to the outgoing editors, Bonnie and Robert Van Ness, for their excellent stewardship of the journal and also for all their help with the transition.
We will be using this blog to highlight new and past research published in the FR and to hopefully discuss topics of interest to finance researchers. We’re also populating the website with abstracts from past articles and creating a tagging system that will allow authors to rapidly find articles of interest. Our goal is to promote and disseminate research published in the Financial Review.
While our editorial philosophy shares several common themes with that of the past editors, we would like to reiterate the main cornerstones of our vision for the Financial Review.
We believe that The Financial Review is a broad interest, high quality finance journal and as such, it should publish articles of interest to the broad finance profession.
We believe that the journal must provide a transparent and efficient review process that not only ensures rapid turnaround for articles (making the journal an attractive outlet for submissions) but also provide quality feedback for all articles – including those that are rejected. Improving the overall level of scholarship in the finance discipline benefits everyone.
We believe that finance research should not be confined to just the pages of academic journals, and towards this end, we are committed to publicizing and sharing the ideas and findings of our authors with the wider finance, business and policy maker community.
We welcome any comments and suggestions – send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
