Participation form and paper guidelines.
Participation Form: aof2012ParticipationForm.docx
Paper Topics: Papers in all areas of finance, insurance, and real
estate will be considered and a double-blind review process will be used
to select papers. This year the Academy will feature eight tracks: 1.
Corporate Finance, 2. Financial Markets, 3. International Finance, 4.
Investments, 5. Personal Financial Planning, 6. Real Estate and
Insurance, 7. The Future of Education in Finance and 8. Special Topics.
(Special Topics will include ethics and other finance related topics.) A
paper from each track will be selected to receive a Best in Track
Submission Instructions: The proposal can be either an abstract or a
complete paper. Complete papers, however, have a better chance of
acceptance. Also, to improve the readability of the proposal be generous
in your use of descriptive headings. The proposal should be typewritten
(single spaced) and have a title page. The title page must contain the
name(s) of the author(s), mailing address(es), phone number(s), and
e-mail address(es). Refrain from using the author's name(s) elsewhere in
the proposal. Abstracts should be no less than two (2) pages. Completed
papers can be over ten (10) pages, including tables and bibliography;
however there is a per page fee for papers over ten pages in length if
accepted for publication in the Journal of the Academy of Finance.
Other Participation Opportunities: For the program to be successful,
session chairs and paper discussants will be needed. Authors presenting
papers are expected to serve as session chairs and paper discussants.
Authors will be assigned as discussants in the same track of their paper
presentation. Conference attendees not presenting a paper may indicate
their willingness to serve as session chair on the participation form.
Notification: You will be informed of the result of the review
process in due course. The submission of a paper indicates
that it or a similar version has not been previously published, accepted
for publication, or is under publication consideration elsewhere.
Journal Submission: Papers presented at the Academy of Finance annual
meeting may also be submitted to the the Journal of the Financial
Issues, a special issue of Managerial Finance (tentative), or a special
issue of the Journal of Contemporary Business Issues (tentative), where they
will undergo the standard double-blind, peer review process.
