Hardware development and the consequent increase in computing power have prompted even further the theoretical development and the empirical implementations and validation of complex econometric models. However, as some recent studies point out, this often requires the development of software capable of producing reliable and accurate parameter estimates. Econometric packages are often inadequate or producing spurious estimation differences when dealing with econometric models, even simpler ones. Accurate computing principles are then in much demand in econometric computing.
We therefore invite submissions for the special issue of Econometrics on Econometric Computing. Research topics should be related to econometric computing. Papers pointing out shortcomings and causes of current state-of-art econometric software are also welcomed. All papers submitted must contain original unpublished work that is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. Ideally, software, programming code and data should be made available to the scientific community as reference.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Econometrics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
