Abstract: We survey editors from 15 "core" and 35 "non-core" finance journals to learn their views about specific issues involving survey research. Based on responses from 25 editors, none of their journals has an established policy involving the publication of survey research. The evidence shows that survey-based manuscripts typically go through the same review process as other manuscripts. However, editors of "core" versus "non-core" journals have mixed views about the role that survey research should play in the finance literature. The editors provide their views about the strengths and weaknesses of survey research as well as topic areas that would benefit from using this approach. A review of a finance journals shows that the publication of survey-based papers is an infrequent event for most journals.
