Secure online reviews of submissions to
The Review of Financial Studies
This form allows you to upload your review (referee report), a cover letter and one additional file (a marked up or corrected manuscript or a related document) for a review you are providing as a reviewer of a pending submission at The Review of Financial Studies.

The journal and editor are responsible for ensuring that the anonymity of your review will be maintained in any communication between the editor and the authors. The document you upload will be transmitted directly to the journal via an encrypted internet connection, so nobody will be able to access your report except the editor in charge of this manuscript at The Review of Financial Studies. This procedure is more secure than sending a report as an email attachment or sending a hard copy via regular mail.

Moreover, PDF files will be automatically "cleansed" so that no identifying features will appear in the internal document metadata. Thus reports will be as anonymous as if sent by hard copy.

Note that text in the Main Menu above or other text in blue are hyperlinks. If you use your mouse to click on any blue text item, your browser will take you to the link target. The text in the horizontal menu above are also hyperlinks that you can use to navigate submission steps (or review/edit a previously completed step).

Reviews must be uploaded as files, and must be in PDF format only. Make sure your review is a PDF file, since this form does not accept reviews in other wordprocessing formats (e.g. doc, docx files).

You may want to consult the guide to creating PDF files for information on PDF file converters if your wordprocessor does not already have an embedded PDF converter.

Submission and verification proceeds in five easy steps and will only take a few minutes of your time.

To avoid problems with submissions using our secure web form, we suggest upgrading to the latest version of your browser. If you have any questions or problems, contact support.
