Authors are advised to read "Important Information from the Executive Editors" at http://finance.ba.ttu.edu/jfr/SubmissionPolicy/ before submitting an article. Articles submitted to the Journal of Financial Research should be sent to email@example.com as two unprotected pdf files. One file should contain the complete article with the title page and author information. The second file should exclude all author information (for blind review purposes). Payment of submission fees can be made by credit card, debit card, or electronic funds transfer, at www.texastechfcu.org/jfr. Submission fees are $150 for members of the Southern Finance Association or Southwestern Finance Association, or $200 for non-members (which includes a one-year subscription to the Journal of Financial Research). You will receive an email receipt from firstname.lastname@example.org after payment.
Beginning January 1, 2014, the JFR will no longer refund the submission fee for desk rejected papers. Furthermore, we will continue our practice of not providing any comments on desk rejections. Additionally, the submission fees will be $150 for members of SFA/SWFA, and $200 for non-members. The $50 difference provides membership and a one year subscription to the JFR.
