The Journal of Financial Planning aims to publish cutting-edge research and perspectives that inform, benefit, and inspire the financial planning community.
As representatives of the Journal's readership, advisory board members help ensure the Journal stays on an editorial track that serves its readers well.
Members of the advisory board are selected from the practitioner, academic, and corporate areas of financial planning and financial services.
Time Commitment & Responsibilities
- All terms last two calendar years. Advisory board members' terms are staggered.
- The advisory board meets quarterly on the first Wednesday of designated months, by way of a conference call. The 75-minute calls include planning specific topics for monthly Focus articles as well as discussing possible topics and authors for technical submissions, which make up the Journal's Contributions section.
- The edit staff also seeks board member feedback on Journal format/past content, to discover (in a more personal way than our research can provide) what our readers find useful/engaging/interesting and what needs improvement.
- Journal editorial staff and the advisory board also correspond through email dialogue as needed.
