The Review of Asset Pricing Studies (RAPS) strives to publish the highest quality research in asset pricing, broadly construed. RAPS will evaluate papers based on their substantive original contribution to our understanding of the pricing of assets. Asset pricing includes, but is not limited to, the following topic areas. Theoretical and empirical models of asset prices and returns, empirical methodology, substantive empirical research, macro-finance, the study of financial institutions as related to asset prices, information and liquidity in asset markets, behavioral investment studies, asset market structure and microstructure, risk analysis, hedge funds, mutual funds, alternative investments and other topics. Manuscripts are accepted for publication on the understanding that they have been submitted solely to The Review of Asset Pricing Studies and that they have not been previously published either in whole or in part.
