On June 30, 2022, the current JF editorial team will step down after serving two consecutive three-year terms. A new editorial team lead by executive editor Antoinette Schoar will take over on July 1, 2022.
To ensure continuity, the two editorial teams agreed to the following transition policy:
New first-round submissions: Papers that come in until June 30, 2022 will be handled by the old editorial team. Starting on July 1, 2022, new submissions will be handled by the new editorial team.
Resubmissions: For an 18-month transition period, the old editorial team will continue to handle resubmissions of all papers that were initially submitted (first round) before July 1, 2022. Papers that do not achieve conditional acceptance status at the latest by the end of this period on December 31, 2023 will transition to the new editorial team.
