Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to submit your research to the special issue of “International Journal of Financial Studies” on bankruptcy prediction. In 1968 prof. Edward Altman from NYU-Stern published his world-wide known Z-Score methodology, which has been in use over last 50 years. Therefore, this is a great opportunity to present in the special issue various perspectives of bankruptcy prediction looking back at the history, as well as looking forward to identify new challenges. Recent years have brought a lot of studies on application of data mining and artificial intelligence techniques in bankruptcy prediction, however the traditional approaches, such as logistic regression still prove to be efficient. We invite papers presenting single- and cross-country studies, comparing different estimation techniques, analyzing bankruptcy prediction for various industries, including financial industry, or referring to the future challenges.
