The Journal of Corporate Finance aims to publish high quality, original manuscripts or shorter format papers in both theoretical and empirical corporate finance. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: financial structure, governance, product markets, payout, labor, innovation, risk management, financial contracting, and international finance. Papers at the intersection of corporate finance and macroeconomics, asset pricing, household, behavioral, fintech and blockchain, law, financial intermediation, or microstructure also are encouraged.

The new Editorial Board is committed to a timely and constructive reviewing process and seeks to streamline the editorial process by implementing an active desk-rejection policy. We anticipate that a non-trivial fraction of papers will be rejected without a detailed reviewing process. The policy is intended to minimize the burden on reviewers as well as create a more efficient process for authors. Desk-rejected articles will NOT be refunded the submission fee. In the same spirit, we expect most papers to converge to a decision within two rounds.

Editors and AEs will recuse themselves from handling submissions from authors at the same institution, current or recent past co-authors, former PhD students (in case the editor was the main advisor), former PhD advisors, close friendships, relatives, and papers that criticize or closely compete with an editor's work. Any direct or indirect financial interest also is considered a conflict of interest. If any editor or AE feel that there is likely to be a perception of a conflict of interest in relation to their handling of a submission, they will inform the Managing Editors. The above conflict of interest policy also will be applied to special issues and journal sponsored conference decisions.
