While a submitted manuscript is being edited, its authors commit to not submitting it to another review.
If it is possible that the manuscript may be subject to conflicts of interest, the editors must be informed of them when it is submitted. Sources of funding that made the writing of the article possible must be mentioned when this is the case.
Authors submitting an article to the review commit to clearly identifying co-authors if there are any, and to mentioning minor contributors.
Authors commit to giving up the rights to their article free of charge to the Révue d’économie financière. However, they themselves are authorized to distribute, non-commercially, all or part of their articles published by the review, under the condition that the publication in the review is clearly mentioned. Authors may not allow third parties to publish their articles commercially or for free without the explicit agreement of the editors.
The editors promise to keep confidential the articles that have been submitted to them, as well as the fact they have been submitted, the editorial process, its stages, and conclusions.
Articles that have been accepted are published within six months to one year from the date the author has received written notification.
The editors keep the authors informed of how the submission process evolves.
