Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

JRFM is currently accepting submissions to a Special Issue on “Empirical Asset Pricing and Financial Econometrics”, with a special emphasis on the cross section of stock returns in international markets. The primary focus of this Special Issue is to advance the fields of empirical asset pricing and financial econometrics by showcasing cutting-edge research and methodologies. The Issue's scope is comprehensive, including empirical asset pricing, particularly in the context of the cross-section of stock returns, and financial econometrics encompass a wide range of topics, including market anomalies, factor models, risk factors, empirical market microstructure, risk management, and volatility modeling, among other topics. 

We strongly encourage authors to submit contributions that employ innovative methodologies, analyze novel datasets, or provide empirical validations of existing. Our goal is to advance the understanding of asset pricing in international markets, offering valuable implications for both academia and practitioners.

We invite submissions that contribute to expanding the existing body of knowledge in the field of empirical asset pricing. Submissions in all areas of empirical asset pricing and financial econometrics are invited, with priority given to empirical papers related to the cross section of stock returns in international markets.
