Editor: Anthony Saunders
Editorial Office: NYU Salomon Center
Published by: Wiley Periodicals, Inc., Commerce Place, 350 Main Street, Malden, MA

This journal provides monograph length treatment of topics of current interest in the areas of financial markets, institutions and instruments. Financial Markets, Institutions and Instruments serves as an important bridge between the practicing financial community and academic scholarship on financial institutions, markets, and regulatory issues.

Four, eighty page issues cover single topics and seek to draw out policy implications. A fifth issue, published each December, provides a brief overview of some of the most significant developments in financial markets over the last twelve months in four twenty page surveys of money and banking, derivative securities, corporate finance, and fixed income securities. Written by authors from universities and regulatory organizations such as the SEC and the Federal Reserve, all articles are accessible to non-specialists.

The Journal of Derivatives is published quarterly by Institutional Investor. It is now in its fifth year of publication. In that time, the journal has established a strong presence in the area of derivative securities and markets, at the interface between theory and practice, and between practitioners and academics. Articles fall within a broad range of topics, but with an emphasis on relevance and applicability to real world securities, markets and issues. Academic standards of rigor are uniformly maintained, and the nature of the subject often requires a relatively high level of mathematical analysis. In addition to current original research, the journal publishes articles of general interest to our readership describing "Innovations," such as new derivative instruments, new trading technology, and current regulatory issues, as well as occasional essentially pedagogical pieces on important derivatives topics.

The goal of the Journal of Derivatives is to be at the interface between practitioners and academics, and between theory and practice, in the area of derivative securities and markets. Articles should be on topics of interest to a broad audience of sophisticated practitioners and academics, written in a style that is clear and accessible. However, strict academic standards for the consistency and correctness of theoretical reasoning and empirical results will apply. A relatively high level of mathematical analysis is acceptable where appropriate derivatives are inherently mathematical, but the mathematics should be 1) only what is necessary and appropriate to the material; 2) expressed in as clear and simple form as possible; and 3) separable to the maximum extent possible from the logical flow of the discussion, so that a paper can be understood by the more casual reader who does not wish to follow the math step by step.

Manuscript submissions are encouraged in the areas of: Theory and practice of trading in any exchange traded or OTC derivative product; Valuation and risk assessment models for derivative instruments and securities with derivative features; Risk management applications of derivatives; Empirical studies on the behavior of derivatives prices and markets; Regulatory issues (from an economic as opposed to legal perspective); and Application of derivatives concepts to other areas, such as insurance, corporate finance, and banking.

The Journal of International Financial Management and Accounting (JIFMA) has been published under the auspices of the Center since January 1992. The globalization of commerce, investment and financial markets has significantly increased the complexity of financial management in exploiting imperfections in world product, factor and financial markets. As many of these issues are unparalleled in the domestic arena, there is a need for a specialist journal focusing on international financial management and accounting.

JIFMA publishes original research dealing with the international aspects of finance, extending into banking and financial services, accounting, auditing and taxation. Manuscripts may be of a theoretical framework, empirical, conceptual, or behavioral nature that have direct implications for financial executives. Collaborative research between academics and practitioners is especially welcome.

The rapid growth of derivatives research combined with the current absence of a rigorous research journal catering to the area of derivatives, and the long lead-times in the existing academic journals, underlines the need for Review of Derivatives Research, which provides an international forum for researchers involved in the general areas of derivative assets. The Review publishes high quality articles dealing with the pricing and hedging of derivative assets on any underlying asset (commodity, interest rate, currency, equity, real estate, traded or non-traded, etc.).
