Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to explore the application of computational approaches in the fields of corporate finance, risk management, and financial markets. The integration of computational methods offers novel opportunities to analyze complex financial systems, assess related risks, optimize decision-making processes, and address the major challenges corporations face today. We invite submissions that employ computational techniques, such as machine learning, data mining, network analysis, simulation, and optimization, to advance the knowledge and understanding in these interconnected fields. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Assessing investment decisions in equity crowdfunding;
  • Developing early warning models against bankruptcy risk;
  • Artificial neural networks for corporate distress modelling;
  • Multi-criteria decision-making methods towards risk assessment;
  • Deep learning for portfolio optimization;
  • Copula approaches towards measuring financial contagion;
  • Volatility forecasting in the cryptocurrency markets;
  • Sentiment analysis of financial news;
  • Predicting stock prices using machine learning;
  • Exploring stock market volatility connectedness.

Prof. Dr. Ştefan Cristian Gherghina

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Computation is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

This study is an in-depth exploration of the nascent field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and generative Artificial Intelligence (AI), and it concentrates on the vital task of distinguishing between human-generated text and content that has been produced by AI models. Particularly, this research pioneers the identification of financial text derived from AI models such as ChatGPT and paraphrasing tools like QuillBot. While our primary focus is on financial content, we have also pinpointed texts generated by paragraph rewriting tools and utilized ChatGPT for various contexts this multiclass identification was missing in previous studies. In this paper, we use a comprehensive feature extraction methodology that combines TF–IDF with Word2Vec, along with individual feature extraction methods. Importantly, combining a Random Forest model with Word2Vec results in impressive outcomes. Moreover, this study investigates the significance of the window size parameters in the Word2Vec approach, revealing that a window size of one produces outstanding scores across various metrics, including accuracy, precision, recall and the F1 measure, all reaching a notable value of 0.74. In addition to this, our developed model performs well in classification, attaining AUC values of 0.94 for the ‘GPT’ class; 0.77 for the ‘Quil’ class; and 0.89 for the ‘Real’ class. We also achieved an accuracy of 0.72, precision of 0.71, recall of 0.72, and F1 of 0.71 for our extended prepared dataset. This study contributes significantly to the evolving landscape of AI text identification, providing valuable insights and promising directions for future research. Full article
