Rising Scholar Award
Please read the rules to determine if you are eligible for consideration.
RAPS, RCFS, and RFS are independent journals. Submissions to any one journal are considered without regard to previous decisions at other SFS journals, and information about past decisions on papers is not shared across the journals without author permission.
IMPORTANT: Manuscripts are evaluated by the Review of Asset Pricing Studies on the understanding that they have been submitted solely to it and that they have not been previously published either in whole or in part. This includes prior publication, in whole or in part, in practitioner-oriented outlets. If you need clarification of this policy, please contact the Executive Editor.
New Submissions That Incorporate Material From a Previously Rejected Article
Do not submit a paper as new that nontrivially incorporates material from a paper of yours that was rejected by RAPS, accepted by RAPS, or is at any stage of review at RAPS, without first obtaining permission to do so from one of the journal’s editors or the Executive Editor! We systematically check new submissions against older ones to enforce this policy. Failure to obtain permission prior to doing so may result in sanctions for you and your co-authors. If in doubt, ask!
Policy on Articles Derived From Published Papers
Sometimes a more practitioner-oriented journal or book volume publisher will approach authors, wishing to publish a derivative or spinoff article based on a paper published in RAPS. We encourage this, with the view that such spinoffs recognize and may enhance the impact of the original paper. However, we have three necessary conditions.
- The spinoff or derivative article cannot be published prior to the date when the original article is published in RAPS.
- The spinoff or derivative article must be substantially different from the original paper published in RAPS.
- The spinoff or derivative article must fully acknowledge and include citation to the original paper published in RAPS.
