CALL: AFAANZ Finance SIG 2019
SHARK TANK PITCH Event - Replications

General Information & Timelines


AFAANZ’s Finance SIG is holding a shark tank pitch event inviting research teams to propose a replication of an important recent finance study. The shark tank event has 3 (initial) stages: (I) an EOI; (II) written 2-page pitch (based on an adapted version of Faff’s (2018, SSRN) “pitching research” framework); (III) oral pitch presentation (based on the written pitch) to a “shark panel” at the 2019 Finance SIG meeting. Following the first two stages, selected teams will be invited to pitch their research replication idea to the “sharks” (i.e. a panel of journal editors representing: Pacific-Basin Finance Journal (confirmed), Accounting & Finance (confirmed) ; and two other journals that are yet to be confirmed). After each pitch, each shark editor will give a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”. In those cases where more than one shark editor is interested, a “competitive process” will ensue to achieve the ideal match of replication pitch to journal. Ultimately, subject to an agreed offer by one of the shark editors, replication pitches presented at the 2019 Finance SIG SHARK TANK PITCH event, will be invited to execute the research replication project and publish the resultant completed paper in a future issue of the “winning” shark’s journal.
