Institute of Finance Case Research
a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization

Welcome to the Institute of Finance Case Research, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the production and dissemination of case teaching resources and instructional techniques in finance. The IFCR was founded in 1996. The organization publishes two academic journals: the Journal of Finance Case Research and the Journal of Instructional Techniques in Finance.The IFCR also sponsors case research and instructional techniques sessions at various academic conferences.

IFCR Conferences

The IFCR is pleased to sponsor case sessions at numerous finance conferences. In past years, we have had case sessions at the conferences of the Financial Education Association (FEA),the Academy of Economics and Finance (AEF), the Financial Management Association (FMA), the Midwest Finance Association (MFA), and the Southwestern Finance Association (SWFA).

Conference submissions may be made through each organization’s website, each of which should include a topic area for cases or clinical papers. Some conferences also accept teaching technique papers through "finance education" or similar topic areas. We encourage authors to follow a format convenient for later submission to the JFCR or JITF (click on the appropriate link for editorial guidelines at each of the journals above). At conferences where a sufficient number of case submissions are received, we will award the IFCR Distinguished Case Research Award.
