Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Professor Leland’s article “Corporate Debt Value, Bond Covenants, and Optimal Capital Structure”
In 1994, Professor Leland published in the Journal of Finance an article that gave a new impulse to the area of quantitative corporate finance. The article was awarded the Stephen A. Ross Prize in 2008, reflecting the major impact the publication had on the field. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of that contribution, Finance, the academic journal of the French Finance Association, will publish a special issue surveying the progress of that literature and presenting some new research challenges.
Research papers related to the field of quantitative corporate finance (theoretical and/or empirical) are welcome. The submission process will be similar to that of regular articles submitted to the journal. We expect all papers to be refereed within less than 3 months.

. Notification of conditional acceptance: February 28th, 2019.
. Deadline for final manuscripts: April 30th, 2019.
