CFP: Special Journal Issue on “History of Corporate Finance”

Abe de Jong and Marc Deloof, editors of a special issue of the Journal of Risk and Financial Management (JRFM), have issued a call for papers on the history of corporate finance. They write:
Twenty years ago, the book A History of Corporate Finance by Paul Miranti and the late Jonathan Baskin was published. This book aims to create a synthesis between modern finance theory and historical investigations of corporate finance decisions. In the past two decades, several studies have been published about the history of financial markets, as well as about accounting and banking history. Unfortunately, historical research into corporate finance decisions seems to be limited. The aim of this special issue is to publish new research on the history of corporate finance. 
A workshop to discuss the submissions will be held in Rotterdam in February 2018; it is expected the special journal issue will appear in June 2018.
     Papers must be submitted for the workshop by November 15, 2017. Completed papers are preferred, but early drafts and proposals may be accepted. Submission implies that the paper will be considered for the special issue of JRFM. Please email the text to and After the workshop, selected papers will be submitted to JRFM for review. Preference will be given to papers presented and discussed in the workshop, but other papers may also be considered.
    For further information, please see the call for papers on the JRFM website.
