Review of Corporate Finance Studies
The Society for Financial Studies is hosting the fifth annual Review of Corporate Finance Studies Winter
Conference on February 19 and 20, 2022. This will be a high–quality conference with a limited number of
papers on corporate finance, financial intermediation, and household finance topics. Our aim is to bring
together a select group of top–quality researchers to present and discuss cutting–edge papers in the field. We
welcome submissions in all areas of corporate finance, financial intermediation, and household finance.
The sessions will be arranged by the RCFS Editors (Andrew Ellul, Isil Erel, Camelia Kuhnen, and Robert
Marquez). We welcome both empirical and theoretical papers in corporate finance, financial intermediation
and household finance.
Special Session on “Finance for the Greater Good”
We plan to have a special session at the conference on the theme “Finance for the Greater Good.” At this
stage, we are calling for Registered Reports on subjects related to this theme in the areas of corporate
finance, household finance, and financial intermediation. Possible topics include the effects of corporations,
financial intermediaries, and investors on aspects of the greater good such as quality of life (health,
environmental, or psychological well–being), equality of opportunity in labor or financial markets, the
building and allocation of human capital, green finance, financial literacy, or community wellbeing inside
and outside of the firm. Please see our Call for Registered Reports (http://sfsrcfs.org/rcfs–winter–
conference–2022/) for more details. After the conference, a small set of selected proposals will be granted
in–principle acceptance for publication in the RCFS.
Please note there are different deadlines for regular papers and for Registered Reports.
Regular papers: November 19, 2021
Registered Reports on “Finance for the Greater Good”: December 5, 2021
HOW TO SUBMIT:
Please submit your paper or Registered Report using this link: https://www.conftool.com/rcfs–
winterconference–2022/. A submitted paper must not have been accepted (or conditionally accepted) at a
journal. The submission fee is US $50 per submission.
For regular papers, the RCFS Winter Conference features dual submission to The
Review of Corporate Finance Studies. Authors should indicate if they wish their paper to be considered (at
no extra fee) for publication by RCFS under the Dual Submission Program. This is a “no–fault” submission
option: if the RCFS reviews the paper and rejects it, the authors may submit it to any SFS journal at a later
date as if it was never submitted. See http://sfs.org/dualsubmissionpolicy/ for details.
