MoneyScience - which describes itself as "the community resource for Quantitative Finance, Risk Management and Technology Practitioners, Vendors and Academics" - has recently released version 3 of its site.

There's a great deal of interesting work going on in "Financial Econometrics", and this is one site that provides really good content and excellent networking facilities that will help keep econometricians up to speed with what is going on in the finance community at large.

I'm pleased to be feeding this blog to MoneyScience (here),  and you'll notice a new icon near the bottom of the right side-bar: MoneyScience

Innovations in Editing

I've posted in the past (here and here) about some of my experiences as an academic journal Editor. It has its ups and downs, for sure, but ultimately it's a rewarding job.

Preston McAfee (Yahoo! & Caltech) is currently the Editor of Economic Inquiry, where he's introduced some important innovations into the editorial process. He was formerly Co-Editor of American Economic Review. As well as being a highly respected economist, Preston has a wonderful way with words.

His thoughts on journal editing make excellent reading, for seasoned academics and newcomers alike. I particularly recommend Preston's piece in the American Economist last year - here.
