8/9/2020: Dual submission to RAPS/RCFS confirmed
Great news! The 3rd edition of the conference will offer dual submission to the Review or Asset Pricing Studies and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, both high-impact journals published by the Society for Financial Studies. This will be a “no-fault” submission option: if RAPS or RCFS rejects the paper, the authors may submit it to any SFS journal at a later date.
