ISSN (printed): 1380-6645. ISSN (electronic): 1573-7144.
The proliferation of derivative assets during the past two decades is unprecedented. With this growth in derivatives comes the need for financial institutions institutional investors and corporations to use sophisticated quantitative techniques to take full advantage of the spectrum of these new financial instruments. Academic research has significantly contributed to our understanding of derivative assets and markets. The growth of derivative asset markets has been accompanied by a commensurate growth in the volume of scientific research. The rapid growth of derivatives research combined with the current absence of a rigorous research journal catering to the area of derivatives and the long lead-times in the existing academic journals underlines the need for Review of Derivatives Research which provides an international forum for researchers involved in the general areas of derivative assets. The Review publishes high quality articles dealing with the pricing and hedging of derivative assets on any underlying asset (commodity interest rate currency equity real estate traded or non-traded etc.). Specific topics include but are not limited to: econometric analyses of derivative markets (efficiency anomalies performance etc.) analysis of swap markets market microstructure and volatility issues regulatory and taxation issues credit risk new areas of applications such as corporate finance (capital budgeting debt innovations) international trade (tariffs and quotas) banking and insurance (embedded options asset-liability management) risk-sharing issues and the design of optimal derivative securities risk management management and control valuation and analysis of the options embedded in capital projects valuation and hedging of exotic options new areas for further development (i.e. natural resources environmental economics. The Review has a double-blind refereeing process. In contrast to the delays in the decision making and publication processes of many current journals the Review will provide authors with an initial decision within nine weeks of receipt of the manuscript and a goal of publication within six months after acceptance. Finally a section of the journal is available for rapid publication on 'hot' issues in the market small technical pieces and timely essays related to pending legislation and policy.
