The Journal of Operational Risk (£775)

The Basel Committee’s 2014 revision of its operational risk capital framework, along with the multi-billion-dollar settlements that financial institutions had to make with financial authorities, has made operational risk the key focus of risk management. The Journal of Operational Risk stimulates active discussions of practical approaches to quantify, model and manage this risk, also discussing current issues in the discipline, and is essential reading for keeping practitioners and academics informed of the latest research in operational risk theory and practice. The Journal of Operational Risk considers submissions in the form of research papers and forum papers, on the following, but not limited to, topics:

  • Causal models that link key risk indicators and macroeconomic factors to operational losses
  • Regulatory issues, such as Basel II or any other local regulatory issue

Energy markets are one of the fastest growing and most complex sectors. From the basic role that oil has in the global economy, to the essential services that gas and electricity provide, energy is an area of geopolitical concern as well as financial activities. The Journal of Energy Markets serves as a major research outlet for new empirical and model-based work in this sector, and publishes original papers on the evolution and behaviour of electricity, gas, oil, carbon and other energy markets, both wholesale and retail. The Journal of Energy Markets considers submissions in the form of research papers on the following, but not limited to, topics:

  • Econometric analyses of prices, volatilities and across particular energy markets
  • Model-based simulation of price and investment behaviour
  • Theoretical and applied analyses of energy derivatives

  • Renewable energy financing and policy analysis


The Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures (£775)

Today, in the light of the financial crisis, it has become part of the political agenda to strengthen payment, clearing and settlement systems, as well as repositories for data on the trades they process. The Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures is the first journal to focus on this exciting and dynamic sector, and aims to bring together a community of contributors from the constituent sectors to analyse financial market infrastructures to further the development of this emerging field. The journal provides a balanced representation of academic and practitioner focused papers which are dedicated to analysing operational and regulatory effectiveness and efficiency of payment, clearing, settlement, trade repository systems; and the risks they manage, transmit and create. The Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures considers submissions in the form of technical papers and policy-oriented papers (forum discussions), on the following, but not limited to, topics:

The Journal of Network Theory in Finance is an interdisciplinary journal publishing academically rigorous and practitioner-focused research on the application of network theory in finance and related fields. The journal brings together research carried out in disparate areas within academia and other research institutions by policymakers and industry practitioners.

As monetary institutions rely greatly on economic and financial models for a wide array of applications, model validation has become progressively inventive within the field of risk. The Journal of Risk Model Validation focuses on the implementation and validation of risk models, and aims to provide a greater understanding of key issues including the empirical evaluation of existing models, pitfalls in model validation and the development of new methods. We also publish papers on back-testing. Our main field of application is in credit risk modelling but we are happy to consider any issues of risk model validation for any financial asset class. The Journal of Risk Model Validation considers submissions in the form of research papers on the following, but not limited to, topics:

  • Empirical model evaluation studies
  • Backtesting studies
  • Stress-testing studies
  • New methods of model validation/backtesting/stress-testing
