Editorial Board of Computational and Financial Econometrics

The CFEnetwork is currently publishing the Annals of Computational and Financial Econometrics as a supplement to the journal of Computational Statistics & Data Analysis. The Annals of CFE serve as an outlet for distinguished research papers in computational econometrics and financial econometrics.

Authors submitting a paper to CSDA may request that it be considered for inclusion in the Annals. Papers for the special issue should be submitted using the Elsevier Electronic Submission tool EES: In the EES please choose as article type the Annals of Computational and Financial Econometrics and the Co-Editor responsible for the Annals. All submissions must contain original unpublished work not being considered for publication elsewhere.

The high standards of the Annals will make it a valuable resource for econometric research. Each issue will be edited by several Guest Editors and Associated Editors who will be responsible, together with the CSDA Co-Editors, for the selection of the papers. The first Issue of the CSDA Annals of Computational and Financial Econometrics comprised 51 papers (Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, Vol. 56, Issue (11), Pages 2991–3808, November 2012). The second Issue of the CSDA Annals of Computational and Financial Econometrics comprises 46 papers (Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, Volume 76, August 2014).
