Instructions for Authors
Submission of Manuscripts
•The submission of a paper to MSFE for refereeing means that the paper has neither been published nor submitted for publication in other journals. We will consider research that is under consideration for publication at workshops or conferences. Authors should submit to the Editor by email at the following address:

•In a near future, MSFE will accept submissions via its own electronic submission management system as soon as it is ready.
The MSFE Paper Review Process
•When a paper is submitted by email to the Editor-in-Chief (EIC), the EIC finds that the paper is very clearly below the standards of the journal or not in its scope, then the paper is rejected immediately, without written review. Otherwise The EIC assigns the paper to an associate editor (AE) who has expertise in the area of the paper. The AE then assigns the paper to three reviewers.
•ossible decisions are Accept and Reject. Accepted papers may still require minor revisions, but they need not be reviewed further. Papers that are rejected will fall into two categories: those that are permitted to be resubmitted and those that are not. Authors will obtain explicit permission for resubmission from an associate editor and can be accepted if the resubmitted paper successfully address all the comments raised by the reviewers.
Types of Contributions
MSFE publishes two types of articles:
•Contributed Articles are characterized by high quality original works that have significant theoretical, methodological, empirical advances in management science and financial engineering. Survey papers on recent topics may also be recommended. Usually a full paper will not exceed 8 pages of formatted text in the MSFE paper sample format.
•Concise Papers intended to serve as a vehicle for rapid publication of new, significant, and timely research results. For example, concise papers may report a useful or conclusive extension of previous results or algorithms. The concise papers section also includes information of current interest, and comments and rebuttals in connection with published papers. A concise paper must not exceed 4 pages of formatted text in the MSFE paper sample format.
Style for Manuscript
•Manuscript Style. MSFE follows the format standards of the KORMS. MSFE paper sample format in MS word can be downloaded from http://www.korms.or.kr/msfe/MSFE_sample.doc.
•Ensure that the title page contains ?complete name, address and e-mail address of the corresponding author ?a list of five key-words?an abstract that does not exceed 200 words.

•The main paper must contain the title, abstract, followed by chapters and references. Note that, for blind refereeing, authors’ name or any other indication should not appear in the main paper
•Sections should be decimally numbered at no more than two levels. Footnotes should not be used in the body of the paper. Incorporate subsidiary material in the text. Detailed format of the paper such as font and its size will be notified to the accepted papers.
•Tables should have a self-explanatory captions located on the top center of the table, and numbered consecutively.

•Tables and figures are recommended to locate at the place they are first cited in the chapters.
•References should list only those cited in the text. References and citation in the text should be indicated by bracketed numbers, e.g. Lee (2009). At the end of the paper, list references alphabetically by the last name of the first author and number them consecutively according to the examples given in the MSFE paper sample format in MS word. For example, references should be listed in the following style:
