Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit papers for the upcoming Special Issue on “Market Microstructure and Corporate Finance”. Topics include, but are not limited to, price formation and price discovery, liquidity, dimensions of market liquidity, corporate governance and control, capital structure, executive compensation, mergers and acquisitions, and behavioural corporate finance. Novel research on computational aspects of finance is also encouraged, for instance, heuristic techniques for financial market modelling, higher dimensional computation, big data and high-frequency trading, etc.

Contributions focusing on interdisciplinary research are also welcome, for instance, approaches and methods explaining key elements of stylised facts of financial markets, market microstructure, financial contagion, behavioural finance, etc.
