Journal of Financial Research

Beginning December 1, 2017, all manuscripts submitted to the JFR must go through the following website: jfresearch.org

The Journal of Financial Research is a quarterly academic journal devoted to publication of original scholarly research across all major areas of finance. The JFR, as it is popularly known, has been in continuous publication since 1978 and is sponsored by the Southern Finance Association (SFA) and the Southwestern Finance Association (SWFA). The Journal is published and distributed by Wiley InterScience, and is available in print and electronic format. Manuscripts submitted for publication are double-blind-refereed to insure fairness to the extent possible. Currently there are 46 Associate Editors, all of whom are leading scholars, who review every manuscript. The Editorship of the JFR rotates periodically, usually every three to six years. Editorial policy guidance is actively provided by a three-member Policy Board consisting of Presidents and one Past-President of the SFA and SWFA.

The editors of the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Review of Asset Pricing Studies and Review of Corporate Finance Studies have issued a joint statement condemning the practice of coercive citation. The editors of the Journal of Financial Research fully endorse this joint statement.


Subscribers include most college and university libraries in the United States as well as several abroad, various financial institutions throughout the world, and individual members of SFA and SWFA. 


Membership and Subscription Information: SFA/SWFA membership is included in submission fees. For more information, see our Submission Policy page.

The SFA and SWFA have developed a Statement of Professional Ethics for its members.
