Authors of accepted papers of the IRMC2016 conference may submit their paper to a special issue of the Quarterly Journal of Finance. Paper acceptance will be announced in April 8, 2016 and authors of accepted papers will then be asked to declare their interest in the special issue by May 8, 2016. Submission to the QJF special issue does not preclude future submission to the QJF again. This is a “no-fault” submission option, which means that if the QJF decides to review your paper and rejects it, you may submit it again at a later date as if the paper was never submitted. Submission to the QJF special issue does not require a separate submission fee – it is part of the submission fee for the conference.
