REGARDING SUBMISSIONS: Social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic requires that the AQR editorial team works remotely. Submissions are only reviewed on SUBMITTABLE. No hard copy submissions can be considered. The specific genre submission windows are posted on this page.
Important Note: We review simultaneous submissions and request that they be identified as such in the cover letter.
All manuscripts must be typed and include the following contact information in your cover letter and/or on your manuscript: mailing address, phone number, and email address.
Although we try to reply within 4 to 12 weeks, sometimes the review process takes longer. If you do not hear from us after 4 weeks, please do not hesitate to query us about the status of your manuscript.
All general correspondence should be addressed to The Editors. You may contact us via this website or at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
