Aims & Scope

Managerial Finance provides an international forum for the publication of high quality and topical research in the area of finance, such as corporate finance, financial management, financial markets and institutions, international finance, banking, insurance and risk management, real estate and financial education.
Theoretical and empirical research is welcome as well as cross-disciplinary work, such as papers investigating the relationship of finance with other sectors.

Submissions are processed online and peer-reviewed with a rapid typical turnaround time from submission to first decision of 40 days on average.

Publishing 12 issues a year, Managerial Finance is very well placed to quickly dedicate issues to specific topics as they arise in the field. Please check below the journal's recently published and forthcoming special issues.

Complimentary access to the Special Issue "Corporate Governance" guest edited by Jacqueline Garner

The Journal is pleased to announce the publication of a special issue on corporate governance guest edited by Jacqueline Garner (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA). This special issue focuses on corporate governance topics, which affect all firms and stakeholders. The policies and guidelines which govern a firm’s practices have a direct impact on firm outcomes. The issue highlights many important topics such as board diversity, controlling shareholders, institutional ownership, and the impact of governance principles on performance. Overall, the research in this issue echoes much of the existing governance research which suggests that a “one size fits all” approach is not sufficient, but rather, continued research is warranted.
