Submissions Guidelines

Papers must be submitted in English, as this is the official language of the PFN2018 Conference.

Papers received by postal mail, e-mail, fax or in writing will not be considered for evaluation.

Papers will be subject to a double-blind review process by the Scientific Committee. Confirmation of acceptance or rejection is going to be communicated in 1st June 2018 and mailed to the corresponding e-mail address of the contacting author.

At least one of the authors of an accepted paper must register as a participant in the 10th Finance Conference of the Portuguese Finance Network (PFN), until 24th June 2018. Please take into consideration that once a paper is included in the programme, the author should present it in the conference or officially notify the Organizing Committee of its withdrawal. Additionally, by registering in the conference, you agree to serve as a discussant of one paper of his/her own area of interest, if needed.

Each individual is limited to one personal appearance on the programme as a presenting author. This policy precludes acceptance of papers for more than one presentation. In other words, an author can submit and present only one paper. However, a presenter can always be a nonpresenting co-author on additional papers.

All matters due to submission and papers will be handled by the Chairperson: Luís Laureano pfn18@iscte-iul.pt

European Journal of Finance Special Issue

Authors of papers presented in the Conference will be able to submit their work for consideration for a special issue of The European Journal of Finance. A call for papers will be sent to presenting authors after the Conference. There will adequate time for authors to revise their work. Submitted papers will be double blind refereed in the usual way. A submission fee will be payable.
