JAFEE BEST PAPER AWARD

This association (JAFEE) encourages theoretical, applied, and empirical research in finance in a broad sense, and in research fields related to actual financial decision making. To promote improvement in the level of research in the field, the JAFEE BEST PAPER AWARD is presented for each section -- there are three sections of theoretical study, application study, and empirical study -- every year to excellent papers from among articles that have been published in recent years in journals published by the association. The winning candidate must be members of this association (regular members, student members, and corporate members). However, if the paper is co-authored and the representative is a regular member of this association, then that situation does not interfere with the inclusion of the co-author who is a non-regular member. Furthermore, authors contributing to the English-language journal APFM shall have the eligibility to receive the award even if they are not regular members. Upon evaluation, the author of an original and excellent paper will be presented with an honorary certificate. Furthermore, in case the paper is co-authored, an honorary certificate will be presented to each author.
