This study commemorates the 25th anniversary of The European Journal of Finance (EJF) by providing a detailed retrospective analysis of the journal’s output using a range of bibliometric tools. The evidence demonstrates that since its inception the journal has grown consistently in terms of dimension, breadth, quality and reach. The major themes that have come to define the EJF over this time include: portfolio management, stock return persistence, risk management, financing decisions, corporate governance, spillover effects, mutual fund performance, volatility measurement and international finance trends. Co-authorship analysis reveals that the journal has fostered a global network of scholars, reflecting the pervasive nature of collaboration that now extends across the world.
