The AFA Annual Meeting paper submission process will be hosted by Conference Maker. (The paper submission mechanics for AFA conferences are entirely separate from the Journal of Finance paper submission process).

Please include the name and email for each author on the paper that is submitted.

All papers must be accompanied by an abstract of at least 200 words, but no more than 600 words.

All papers must be submitted as PDF files.

Complete papers will be given preference, but extended abstracts of several pages may also be submitted.

Submitted papers should not have been accepted for publication.

The author submitting the paper to the Annual Meeting must be a member of the American Finance Association for the paper to be considered.

Each individual may only submit one paper (although they can be a co-author on other submitted papers).

You can check that your paper was uploaded correctly by clicking on the “My Submissions” link in the navigation bar within Conference Maker.

To enable wider participation, please submit only one paper and do not submit the same paper to other associations that meet at the same time as the AFA/ASSA.
