Our Dean, Professor Nickolaos G. Travlos is
recognized as one of the 'most contributing'
authors to the Journal of Finance
A forthcoming article by Jean L. Heck and Philip L. Cooley in
the Journal of Review of Quantitative Finance & Account-
ing, titled ‘Sixty years of research leadership: contributing
authors and institutions to the journal of finance', identifies
the contributors to the Journal of Finance (JF), “the gold
standard in academic finance literature for the past 60
years”, over its six decades of existence, as well as the fre-
quency with which they appear in JF.
Among the 3,276 authors, worldwide, who have published
research in the Journal of Finance, Professor Nickolaos G. Travlos, ranks 63rd
for the period 1946-2005 with nine appearances, and 39th for the subperiod
1976-2005. At European level, Professor Travlos, ranks 1st among all authors
employed by a European academic institution, who have published in JF.
Repeated appearances in the Journal of Finance, according to Heck and
Cooley, are exceptional and seem even more remarkable when one considers
that many finance doctorates never appear once in finance journals. Thus,
the accomplishments of the authors that are identified by the article are es-
Professor Travlos' accomplishment highlights the great extent to which ALBA
is committed to continuous research, on the basis of excellence of teaching
and intellectual impact on the business world.
