Philosophy of the Journal Of Investment Management
The foundation of investment management is based upon rigorous research. The challenge is to identify and showcase relevant research which has the enduring quality to contribute to this foundation. The Journal Of Investment Management is dedicated to this objective. Our approach is to have multiple venues of presentation. These include:
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.
Practitioners Digest – highlights the practical significance of each manuscript
Surveys, Technology and Crossovers – This section 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 technology, and the cross-disciplinary nature of the investment management business, while directing the reader to interesting and important recent work.
Case Studies – topics of timely interest
Book Reviews – discussions on new books of particular interest
These featured sections augment the very high quality core group of manuscripts that are the result of a rigorous, fully refereed editorial process.
Our presentation standards maximize readability. Technical appendices are used for expositions requiring extensive use of equations. Comprehensive description of all equations in words is stressed. There is emphasis on the practical significance and intuition of application. In sum, the comprehension and usability of our material for the practitioner and student are primary motivations. In addition, The JOIM prints in full color.
