Tiered Submission Fees

As part of our continued effort to increase access for authors worldwide, the SFS is implementing tiered submission fees for our journals. Authors who reside in middle-income economies will be eligible to pay a reduced submission fee and authors who reside in low-income economies will be eligible for a fee waiver. While our journals have always offered some waivers for economic hardship, we have now formally defined the waiver options to increase transparency.

We at the RFS were saddened to learn of the passing of Professor Peter Christoffersen of the University of Toronto. Peter was an Associate Editor of the RFS from 2012-2015, and a valued member of the Society for Financial Studies. We extend our sympathies to his wife, Professor Susan Christoffersen, and his family. Rotman has created an In Memoriam page, which may be viewed here.
