Chapter 30: Publishing in finance versus entrepreneurship/management journals

Douglas Cumming


I was pleased to be invited by the editors to write a brief chapter on my experiences publishing in finance versus entrepreneurship/management journals. I am sure there are better folks than me for this job (including, but not limited to, the editors of this book), but I do think I have a few things I can share. I do so with the hopes that I do not overly offend someone (to be a nerd and put it in economics terms, I hope that this chapter is Pareto optimal), and if I do, then at least I hope the harm I cause to some will be outweighed by the benefit I will do for others by sharing my experiences (back to being a nerd, if Pareto optimality is not possible, I nevertheless hope that this chapter is Kaldor–Hicks optimal). Also, although I express concerns with some reviewers through anecdotes herein, overall I hope to convey that I have greatly benefited from feedback from colleagues and through the review process. While the experiences I share here reflect my personal biases, I nevertheless hope they are helpful for others in the future. In this chapter I address two questions that I am often asked by other professors. The first is often asked by junior professors: ‘How do I publish in different fields?’ The second is more often asked by both junior and senior professors: ‘Why do I publish in different fields?’
