Review of Business, in co-operation with Institute for Financial Distress Research and Education, is seeking academic papers for a special issue on Financial Distress and Bankruptcy.
In the past year, extreme economic circumstances became an everyday reality even for most well-established and prudent enterprises. High-profile business bankruptcies are in the news regularly and more are expected. A wave of personal bankruptcies is anticipated in the near future. Businesses and individuals alike are asking important questions: How to stay afloat? How to prepare for the future? While COVID-19 is a new development, the world economy has previously seen other extraordinary events. Research can assist in bridging a knowledge gap between inferences from the past and uncertainty of future developments. As a consideration for publication, an emphasis on the COVID-related crisis will be a plus, but priority will still be given to high-quality research.
We invite authors to submit their research papers that focus on the following topics:
Selected papers will be invited for presentations. The Institute for Financial Distress Research and Education established a Best Paper Award. The best paper will be recognized in the journal issue and author(s) will receive $1,000 monetary prize.
Please submit your paper by email RB-FinDistress@psu.edu with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2021. Authors of the selected papers will be informed in March 2021.
