Call for Papers: Special Topic on “Energy Finance”
Emerging Market Finance and Trade (SSCI, Impact factor 0.768)
A large number of researchers in the energy field have studied issues such as the relationship between energy price shocks and financial markets, financing and investment decisions made by energy firms, carbon finance and green finance, etc. These studies have naturally evolved into a common research theme—“energy finance”, and there has been even a growing interest on the subject among academic researchers. In addition, since the 2008 global financial crisis, international energy markets have become more closely linked with financial markets, and energy prices have exhibited more certain financial characteristics. As a result, it is critical to further study energy market issues but more from a finance perspective. Indeed, the strategic importance of energy and green development makes financial issues more unique and relevant, which inevitably leads to further separation of energy finance from general financial research.
The concept of energy finance, however, is vague and has no clear definition, which may constraint its further development. This special topic on “energy finance, to be published in a regular issue of Emerging Markets Finance and Trade, aims at publishing high-quality, frontier research papers that would focus not only on more on recent developments in the energy finance field on emerging economies and markets but also clarify some conceptual issues as well.
The special topics to be considered include, but not limited to, are the following:
Pricing mechanisms in the international energy markets
Energy and financial markets
Energy corporate finance
Carbon finance and carbon pricing
Green bonds and investment
