Financial Economics concentrates on monetary activities such as the study of financial variables including prices, interest rates, and shares, as well as risk and other variables related to financial decisions. The Financial Economics Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps finance scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
The Financial Economics Network (FEN) helps promote new scholarship in finance and fosters interdisciplinary discovery in areas that intersect with it including accounting, economics, marketing, psychology, and management. On FEN finance researchers can learn what the best minds in the field are working on as well as find the latest and cutting-edge research that may take years before it is published. This not only helps researchers decide what the contemporary thought-provoking questions are but also helps them decipher the openings in and possible extension to the extant literature.
