We have updated the SFS 35th anniversary video message. The extended video now features Mark Weinstein, SFS Secretary/Treasurer from 1987-2012.
We combined our journal Twitter accounts to create a central location for news about the SFS journals and conferences! The handle @RevOfFinStudies is now @SFSjournals. The handles @RevOfCorpFin and @RevOfAssetPric are now archives.
Follow @SFSjournals on Twitter for news about RFS, RAPS, RCFS, and the SFS Cavalcade conferences.
