FAMe tries to avoid making editorial selections based on content. If a finance article has recently been published in a top finance journal, it is eligible. Although FAMe reserves the right to reject MeMOs that it deems not clear enough, or that are too difficult to coax into our styles, motivated authors should be able to follow our (style) instructions and have their MeMOs published.
If possible, theories should be exposited with the simplest numerical examples, rather than with equations. We do not expect our readership to wade through algebra and/or proofs.
To submit a FAMe version of your article recently published or forthcoming in pre-finance journal, please send your proposed short MeMO to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For papers from accounting journals, please use email@example.com, instead. To get preapproval, please contact the editor.
We believe that the general audience for a FAMe finance MeMO is about 10 times greater than the number of readers of the original research article. (The latter are often read only by researchers in the area.) We believe that a MeMO also increases readership and citations to the original article. It is a win-win for the profession.
When you prepare your MeMO, please use these FAMe style guidelines. Read our most recent to issue—we are still evolving, too.
Our style instructions for authors are available in pdf, html and latex format. Note that these instructions are still evolving, because FAMe is still a young publication.
