About the JOIM
The Journal Of Investment Management (JOIM) (established in 2003) is a high quality, fully refereed publication, which bridges the theory and practice of investment management. The JOIM offers rigorous research with practical significance, drawing from the disciplines of finance, economics and accounting. Special issues on timely topics including distinguished authors who have both impressive academic and professional experience are a highlight. Our overall goal is to be mindful of the need to present the very best quality material in a form appealing to the practitioner, student and academic.
Our framework for editorial review is fundamental to our mission. Aside from the double blind refereeing of all manuscripts, authors are encouraged to place equations in a technical appendix with each equation accompanied by a descriptive interpretation in words.
Other features of the JOIM include full color printed graphics, a Practitioners Digest which highlights the practical significance of each manuscript; an Insights section where leading authorities from academia and the profession share insights or thoughts; Case Studies on topics of timely interest; Surveys, Technology and Crossovers provides surveys of the literature in investment management or short papers exemplifying advances in finance that arise from the confluence with other fields. This section acknowledges current trends in, and the cross-disciplinary nature of the investment management business, while directing the reader to interesting and important recent work and Book Reviews.
- The JOIM has the annual Harry M. Markowitz Award (honoring his legacy and supporting future research and innovation in the practice of asset management).
- The JOIM has ranked 8 out of 41 financial journals for global impact and first among practitioner publications.
The “Practitioners Digest” emphasizes the practical significance of manuscripts featured in the “Insights” and “Articles” sections of the journal. Readers who are interested in extracting the practical value of an article, or who are simply looking for a summary, may look to this section.
“Insights” features the thoughts and views of the top authorities from academia and the profession. This section offers unique perspectives from the leading minds in investment management.
“Case Studies” presents a case pertinent to contemporary issues and events in investment management. Insightful and provocative questions are posed at the end of each case to challenge the reader. Each case is an invitation to the critical thinking and pragmatic problem solving that are so fundamental to the practice of investment management.
