Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to the 17th edition of ICABE conference. The main themes are related to technology and business, digital money and cryptocurrencies and leadership in modern times. In addition, the conference highlights recent developments in research into several issues in risk and financial management, the role of corporate governance, financial stability of world economy, and recent developments in the EU and the USA regarding banking, default issues, regulation, and implications for asset and liability management.

As Guest Editors, we intend to indicate the current route of under-reviewed economic theory, after the Global and Financial Crisis of 2008 (GFC-’08) and the Eurozone banking and sovereign crises of 2010. We are mainly interested in conceptual papers making a holistic attempt to explain the risk which inherently exists within the economic system, producing economic and financial crises. We would like to see the terms “economic methods” (hypothetico-inductive, deductive, or hypothetico-deductive), “financialization” and the “commercialization of risk” discussed in future submissions, in the form of research articles, or even notes.

The editorial office of the journal provides several feature paper quotas for this Special Issue. A feature paper refers to a high-quality paper. When accepted after review, these papers will be published free of charge. Other papers will be published with a 50% discounted rate from the official fee charged by the journal. It is up to Guest Editors to decide whether to grant the full waiver to potential authors.

Should you have any questions related to Feature Papers, and/or to others, please feel free to contact the Guest Editors or JRFM’s editorial office ([email protected]).
