Another Shark Tank Opportunity in 2020 - calling Capital Market Researchers!

Posted by Robert Faff 2

PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITY & SHARK TANK EVENT

Following on from the highly successful inaugural SHARK TANK event at the World Finance Conference 2019 in Santiago, Professor Robert Faff from the University of Queensland Business School will co-ordinate and lead a new SHARK TANK event at the WFC2020 in Malta. The key focus of this event:

  • is targeting HIGH QUALITY seasoned papers presented at the WFC2020 conference;
  • papers to go through a fast-tracked review for publication at a participating journal;
  • the reviews based on the SHARK TANK process (as described in the information sheet – available at the link shown below).

Which journals are involved in the WFC2020 SHARK TANK event?

The currently signed-up journals are:

  • Pacific-Basin Finance Journal;
  • Journal of Financial Stability

… with more journals to be confirmed soon.

While these journals are finance focused, those of you doing quality "capital markets" research, that is at the intersection accounting and finance, are encouraged to get involved.

This is a good way to ease into multi-disciplinary work!
