From August 2017, there will be a new, faster publishing model at the Review of Finance. Manuscripts will be published online to the Advance Articles page within 24 hours of the author completing their licence to publish, i.e. before copyediting and typesetting. The accepted manuscript will have a DOI and thus its publication date will constitute the official publication date of the paper. After copyediting and typesetting, the original PDF will be replaced by the typeset version, but the original publication date will still apply.
This model allows accepted papers to be officially published much faster than in the past and is part of the RF s broader effort to reduce turnaround times (which also involves reducing the number of rounds, and the review times in each individual round).
The Instructions to Authors have been updated to note this new publication model. If you’ve any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
