Abstract

Being subject to time and budget constraints, researchers have to decide whether to attend academic conferences, and if so, which conferences are associated with the best publication outcomes. Based on acknowledgment information obtained from footnotes of more than 3,000 research articles published in finance journals, we first argue that conference participation constitutes an important factor when publishing research articles in top finance journals. We further track the publication status of more than 9,000 research articles presented at the most popular finance conferences. Thereby, we arrive at a ranking of 47 finance conferences with the highest appearance rates in top finance journals. In doing so, we provide finance researchers with guidance so they can decide which conferences to attend.
