Since launching in 2015, Finance and Society has provided a platform for innovative research on finance from across the social sciences and humanities. In addition to regular articles and essays, we have published a series of special issues and forums on the themes of money, art, security, temporality, macro-finance, and more. As the journal enters a new phase of growth and development, we are seeking high-quality submissions and proposals that deepen the cross-disciplinary dialogue on finance, from theoretical interventions and empirical studies to policy-oriented work.

Submissions are invited in the following formats: (1) Research articles of 8-10,000 words; (2) Essays of 4-6,000 words; (3) Review articles of 2-3,000 words; and (4) Book reviews of 1-2,000 words. Proposals from guest editors for special issues and forums are also welcomed. Special issues can combine any of the above formats, and may also feature a forum. Forums should consist of 4-6 short commentaries, of 2-4,000 words each.
