Instructions for Authors
- Articles should be submitted by uploading an electronic file. Starting June 1, 2004, no other method of submission will be accepted.
- Submitted articles must be original work. They should not be already published, or be submitted for publication in other outlets.
- All of the information required for the title page will be collected during the online submission process. Particularly for the initial submission, do NOT include your own title page on the article. The article should begin with the first page of the text and should have no headers or title pages that include the identities of the authors. Failure to follow these guidelines will delay the peer review process for your submission.
- Articles should be double-spaced (except for footnotes). Pages should be numbered.
- Articles should be in publishable format. They should not exceed 25 pages. The introduction should be understandable by a non-specialist. It should place the article in the existing literature, and announce the structure of the article. The conclusion should summarize the main contributions in non-technical language.
- Titles and sub-titles should be short. References, tables and figures should be numbered with Arabic numerals and should appear on separate pages. Table and figure legends should be detailed and enable the reader to understand the table without referring to the text.
- Footnotes should be kept to a minimum. They should be numbered with Arabic numerals, and should not contain formulae, tables or figures. Equations should be numbered on the right side of the page with Arabic numerals in parentheses.
- References should begin at the end of the text, by alphabetical order. References should contain the name of the author(s) and the year of publication. For example:
Chung et al. (2003) in the text, and
Chung, S. L., M. Shackleton and R. Wojakowski, "Efficient
quadratic approximation on floating strike Asian option values,"
Finance, vol. 24, June 2003, 49-62.
in the references.
- The final version for publication should be provided in Word or TEX format.
