  1. Submission Rules
  2. The manuscript should be sent only through the journal system with this URL:
  3. Be careful when completing the authors' profiles in the submission system. It is not possible to change the order, number, and affiliation of the authors and the corresponding author at any stage of the submission process. (For graduate students, check the rules of your university beforehand.)
  4. Registration and submission of manuscripts should only be done by faculty members. The responsible author of the paper extracted from the theses must be the supervisor. In addition, the responsible author should present the academic email address.
  5. The affiliations of the authors in the submission system must be included first and last name, academic degree, department title, faculty title, university title, city, and country. It is worth mentioning that the responsible author must enter his ORCID code. Those who do not have this code can create one for themselves at In addition, no separate file should be uploaded for the authors' affiliation.
  6. Authors must upload five files. Manuscript, Data Excel file, Letter of commitment, Conflict of interest, and Publishing right assignment. If another file is intended, it can be sent with the supplementary files option. Articles that do not have a data file should be mentioned in the descriptions box in the submission process. It can be omitted if approved by the editor.
  7. Manuscript preparation
  8. The manuscript must include an original and innovative paper in the field of investment and financing management issues (portfolio optimization, financial markets, and institutions, financial engineering and risk management, financial performance evaluation, fundamental and technical analysis, capital budgeting, working capital management, investment management in fixed and intangible assets, Islamic financing, international financing, project financing, capital structure, valuation of bonds and companies, financing tools, corporate finance, etc.).
  9. The manuscript should not be previously submitted to or published in any journal (in any language) or published in any journal.
  10. The first page includes the manuscript title, abstract, and keywords (between 4 and 6 items). The Persian abstract should be written in a structured way including objectives, method, results, and innovation titles of a maximum of 250 words. Since the manuscript passed the peer-review process, the authors' names should not be mentioned in the manuscript, and there should not be any sign in the entire article, that the reviewers can recognize the author(s).
  11. The text of the manuscript should be written in Word and a single-column format. Fonts for Persian text (body-abstract and keywords) should be B-Zar 13, for English text should be Times New Roman 11 and for the English title also with font 14, for headlines should be B-Zar 13 bold, for the titles of figures and tables should be B-Zar 12 bold, for English footnotes should be Times new roman 10, for the inside of the tables should be B-zar 12 and B-zar 12 bold for the heading row. The distance between the lines should be single. 
  12. The main titles of the manuscript should be as follows: abstract, introduction, literature review, research method, findings, conclusion, Persian references, and English references. As much as possible, do not put a sub-title for any of the main titles. The introduction, while explaining the background of the research, includes the statement of the problem, its goals and necessity, and finally the framework for the continuation of the research. It is emphasized that there should not be an independent section called background and research records that starts with the author's name and year in the manuscript. In the literature review section, the hypotheses (if any) should be mentioned after the empirical, theoretical, and argumentative explanation of the basis of the hypothesis. Limitations, suggestions for future research, and practical suggestions should be mentioned in the same section of the conclusion without an independent title and each in an independent paragraph.
  13. On the last page of the manuscript, there should be an English abstract, which should be equivalent to the Persian abstract and a maximum of 250 words. After the acceptance, you will be asked to provide an extended abstract, in which case the first part of the extended abstract in an unstructured form is the same abstract that appears at the end of the manuscript.
  14. The title of figures and tables should be written as "Figure (2) Application...". Write the title of the tables above the table and the title of the figures below the figure. In addition, all tables and figures must have an English title, which is written in the same format as the Persian title. The tables should not be colored or have a colored background and should only be written with black text. Tables should be brought close to the relevant text. Curves, figures, and diagrams should be accurate, clear, and original, and refer to the numbers of tables and diagrams in the text of the article.
  15. Use "/" everywhere in the manuscript to separate decimals. The use of dots and commas is not acceptable.
  16. It is not appropriate to provide a table for regression assumptions and you should explain the results only in the text. Also, when the regression equation is used, the mathematical form of the model should be given above the output table, unless there is not enough space.
  17. If your manuscript has a financial sponsor or provider of the research credit, or is derived from a research project, it is mandatory to mention its information in a paragraph entitled "Acknowledgement". The place of this paragraph should be at the end of the manuscript before the references.
  18. All the numbers in the manuscript, except the year of the in-text citation, should be written in Persian numbers.
  19. Citation
  20. It is worth mentioning that Persian references appear once in the Persian references list and once translated into English and appear in their place in English references. Be careful not to translate them directly and refer to the English version of the desired reference for translation.
  21. In the in-text citation, it is necessary that the citations in parentheses be in English, such as (Abbszadeh, et al. 2005). This rule should be followed for both Persian and English citations. In other words, for Persian citations, it is necessary to mention the year in Julian because its English version is available in the English references. For references that are part of the sentence and only the year comes inside the parentheses, such as "Jones et al. (2003)", it is necessary to write the name in Persian letters and the year in English numbers. In this case, the English word of the names must be inserted in a footnote for both Persian and English citations. For two authors, the surnames of both should be used and for three authors and greater use "et al.".
  22. APA format with modifications should be used for citation at the end of the manuscript. Below are some examples of citations to different references.
