Call for Papers
Advances in Financial Economics (Volume 16) "Corporate Governance"

Stephen P. Ferris, University of Missouri
Kose John, New York University
Anil K. Makhija, The Ohio State University

Submissions are invited for a special issue of Advances in Financial Economics (Vol. 16). While Advances will continue to consider papers from any area of Finance, the focus of this issue is corporate governance, with a particular emphasis on international corporate governance issues. Authors are encouraged to submit papers that examine boards of directors, organization structure, compensation design, franchise agreements, or strategic alliances. This volume especially seeks papers that analyze these issues from a global perspective and offer insights into how governance operates internationally. This volume also invites studies that investigate the effects of corporate governance mechanisms external to the firm such as law and regulation, politics, culture, or taxes. Studies which test the corporate governance implications of the firm's ownership structure or the divergent set of claims against the firm's cash flows are also appropriate for this volume.

ABOUT THE JOURNAL: Advances in Financial Economics, published by the Emerald Group Publishing Limited, Howard House, Wagon Lane, Bingley, BD16 1WA, United Kingdom, is a continuing series of refereed annual journal volumes featuring original academic research in financial economics. There is no submission fee, and papers are accepted in electronic form only.
