Miami Behavioral Finance Conference

Join us, Dec. 10, 2021, for our 11th Annual Miami Behavioral Finance Conference gathering leading researchers from across the world. Due to the ongoing pandemic the conference will be held virtually. Since the inaugural conference in 2010, the conference has evolved into one of the premier behavioral finance conferences worldwide. The quality of the papers that have been featured in the conference has helped the conference gain this reputation. The conference has featured about 140 papers and 105 of them are either published, forthcoming, or past the first review round at premier journals like the “Journal of Finance,” "The Review of Financial Studies,” “The Journal of Financial Economics,” and “Quarterly Journal of Economics. The academic sponsor for the conference is the Review of Financial Studies (see below for more details). Financial support for the conference was generously provided by Cubist Systematic Strategies.

RFS Partnership

The Miami Behavioral Finance Conference and the Review of Financial Studies (RFS) announce a combined submission process. Submitted papers to the Miami Behavioral Conference may also be considered for publication by the RFS, free of charge. The rules for this dual submission process are as follows:

  1. You must choose the dual submission option during the submission process.
  2. At the discretion of the RFS Sponsoring Editor, a small number of dual submissions will be invited to submit to the RFS. The RFS will waive the fee on such submissions and have the submission formally reviewed. In this case, the paper’s author will receive a copy of the RFS reviewer's report.
  3. Papers submitted for dual consideration must not be under review at another journal or the RFS, nor can they be considered for dual submission if previously rejected by the RFS.
  4. In the event that a dual submission, which has been invited for submission at the RFS, is subsequently rejected, its authors have the option to submit a future version of their paper to the RFS without prejudice.

While under consideration as a dual submission by the Miami Behavioral Conference and the RFS, a paper may not be submitted to another journal (or the RFS) until the author has been notified of the dual submission outcome. For more details please see the SFS website at
