Welcome to the RCFS system for new submissions, resubmissions, and appeals.
Please read the Guidelines for Initial Submissions and look at the sample PDF files. We strongly suggest that you read the Review Policy and the Submission Fees page before submitting.
The Fast Track submission option guarantees a two-week turnaround or your money back. The cost of a Fast Track is $1000. If you choose the Fast Track option, email the journal’s Managing Editor to alert us so that we can get the editorial process moving! For information on the Fast Track process and fees, please visit Review Policy.
Rising Scholar Award
To determine if you are eligible for consideration for the Rising Scholar Award, please read the rules. If you are eligible, you may select Rising Scholar Award as your Category of Submission in Step 2.
RAPS, RCFS, and RFS are three independent journals. Submissions to any one journal are considered without regard to previous decisions at other SFS journals, and information about past decisions on papers is not shared across the journals without author permission.
IMPORTANT: Manuscripts are evaluated by the Review of Corporate Finance Studies on the understanding that they have been submitted solely to it and that they have not been previously published either in whole or in part. This includes prior publication, in whole or in part, in practitioner-oriented outlets. If you need clarification of this policy, please contact the Executive Editor.
Once your paper has been successfully submitted, you will receive a confirmation e-mail and a manuscript number. If you do not receive an e-mail in response to your submission, it did not enter the system properly. Often this is because the final “submit” button was not clicked. Return to your submission by using the link in the email you received when you began your submission.
If you have any problems with the system, please do not hesitate to contact the editorial office.
