SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics (SIFIN) is a high-quality journal which brings together works on theoretical developments in financial mathematics as well as breakthroughs in the computational challenges they encompass. By publishing papers of high quality and originality, SIFIN serves as an essential resource for academic finance researchers and practitioners alike.
In addition to full-length research articles, the journal publishes a section dedicated to short communications. Authors are asked to limit these submissions to 12 pages, and decisions will be made within a short period of time. The content of a short communication can be theoretical and/or applied including new algorithms, provided it meets the standards of novelty as a full-length research submission.
The journal offers a conduit for the publication of articles in any branch of financial mathematics. It also provides a common platform for scholars interested in the mathematical theory of finance as well as practitioners interested in rigorous treatments of the scientific computational issues related to implementation. On the theoretical side, the journal seeks papers with demonstrable mathematical developments motivated by models of modern finance. On the computational side, it publishes works introducing new methods and algorithms representing significant (as opposed to incremental) improvements on the existing state of affairs of modern numerical implementations of applied financial mathematics.
Submission of a manuscript to a SIAM journal is representation by the author that the manuscript has not been published or submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. In general, papers that have appeared in conference proceedings will not be considered unless significantly revised. If a paper has appeared previously, in any form, authors must clearly indicate this in both their cover letter and in a footnote on the first page of the paper.
