We welcome you to the website of the Journal of Finance Issues. The Journal is a double-blind reviewed journal that is listed in Cabell's Directories. The Journal was founded by members of the Academy of Finance (AOF) which is one of the organizations that meet annually in Chicago, IL at the Midwest Business Administration Association (MBAA) meetings every year in the late winter or early spring. While many of the papers submitted to the Journal are papers that were presented in the annual meetings and later improved based upon the feedback received at the meetings, the Journal is open to all submissions from authors outside of the AOF membership. No preference is given to papers that were submitted by members over those submitted by non-members. We encourage you to submit quality research articles to our Journal!
