The overriding principle is to emphasize market intuition versus theoretical detail. In addition, to the extent possible, additional data and conclusion extension(s) are desirable.
The following features are encouraged:
- more extensive introduction to motivate the paper for practitioners;
- addition of relevant practitioner citations;
- use of empirical results to illustrate their practical significance;
- condensing empirical results while adding more discussion;
- use of technical appendices for all non-essential equations;
- a mosaic of past papers, fully cited and in a form not in conflict with their copyright(s).
In sum, our objective is to transform high quality, rigorous research to promote an impact on investment management decision making.
