Conference Dual Submission Option: You may elect dual submission to either The Review of Corporate Finance Studies or The Review of Asset Pricing Studies. To select dual submission, select Dual RAPS or Dual RCFS under “Category of Submission” in Step 2. If the journal you select decides not to send your paper out for review, the editor may refer your paper to the other journal, if appropriate, or to The Review of Financial Studies, for possible review. Thus, by selecting the dual submission option, you have implicitly agreed to be reviewed by any of the three SFS journals. Please see our Dual Submission Policy.
