SFS Cavalcade is the Best Large Finance Conference

A new paper by Sebastian Reinartz and Daniel Urban ranks 45 finance conferences based on subsequent success of papers presented at those conferences in getting published in top journals. They find that 62% of SFS Cavalcade papers were subsequently published in the top 3 finance journals, compared to 40% for the AFA, 28% for the WFA, 21% for FIRS, and 21% for the EFA. Thus, they conclude that “the Society for Financial Studies (SFS) Finance Cavalcade conference is the best large finance conference according to the subsequent publication rates in TOP3 finance journals.” See their paper “Finance Conference Quality and Publication Success: A Conference Ranking” available on SSRN.
