New Fee Structure and Introduction of Referee Payments 

The Review of Finance announces the introduction of payments to referees and changes to the submission fee, with effect from 1 January, 2017. The changes are as follows:

 

 

New Editorial Policy 

We also announce the following clarifications of our editorial policy. These policies are already being implemented, but we thought that it would be useful to make a clear statement of them to authors.

 

New Referee Awards and Referee Database

·  Great referees are critical to the editorial process, but typically only noticed by the Editors. We are pleased to announce the introduction of Best Referee awards. They will be presented each year at the EFA annual meeting, together with the Best Paper awards.

·  The Editorial Express database has an option for Editors to grade referees; however, to date it has not been used systematically. We have changed the editorial policy to require Editors to grade referees and provide comments before they can render a decision. We hope that this will create a comprehensive database of referee quality (in addition to speed, which is automatically tracked), helping ensure that we use the highest-quality reviewers for authors.
