Author guidelines

Dual submission & Journal Publication:

Dual submission to the Journal of Financial Markets will be allowed. At the time of submission to the conference, authors may indicate that they want to choose the option of dual submission to the JFM. After the conference, at the discretion of the JFM editors, papers may be invited for submission to the JFM. Invited papers will not have to pay any submission fees but will go through the regular editing process. Even if a dually submitted paper is subsequently rejected, the authors can submit to the journal again through the regular submission process.

JFS Award papers are obligated to be published by the Journal of Financial Studies, the official publication of the Taiwan Finance Association.
