Abstract

Editing high quality finance journals is challenging, but also requires careful thinking on optimal governance processes to ensure equity, particularly given the large number submissions at these journals. Enhancing and maintaining incentives for authors’ creativity is also important. I discuss issues arising from subjectivity in referees’ reports in finance journals, and present a list of editorial suggestions that might improve authors’ experiences and enhance the quality of submissions at these journals.

Keywords: editing, refereeing
