The main goal of this special theme conference is to encourage comparative studies that deepen our knowledge of finance by focusing on the impact of cross-country factors. As this JIFMIM special theme prompts cross-country studies, we seek theoretical and empirical papers that shed light on new knowledge to enrich the literature on credit, banking, asset pricing, market liquidity, corporate finance, corporate governance, and entrepreneurial finance in an international context. We invite submissions of papers related to the main topics of this special theme.

Paper Submission Procedure:
As in previous years, the 2019 CCPF Conference will follow a two-stage procedure in order to ensure the quality of this special theme publication. At the first stage, we invite submissions of two-page research proposals (by February 15, 2019) that will be screened by the guest editors. A selected number of proposals will be chosen for presentation at the CCPF conference to take place June 25-27, 2019 in Jinan, China. A full version of the working paper is due by May 31, 2019, to allow the discussant enough time to review the paper. At the second stage, the CCPF Scientific Committee will choose selected papers from those presented at the June conference (notification by July 31, 2019). Authors of short-listed papers will be invited to revise and present at a Special Theme Symposium to be held in December 2019 in a location to be determined. These papers will be considered for publication by JIFMIM. The revise-and-resubmit process will begin on February 1, 2020, and final notification of acceptance to the special theme will be sent during summer 2020.

Note: Papers that are not chosen to be considered by JIFMIM may be invited for submission with Emerging Markets Review, Finance Research Letters, or Risk Management. All these three journals are on the SSCI list. Please send proposals and enquiries to:
