    Special Issue on Financial Derivatives


    In finance, a derivative is a contract that derives its value from the performance of an underlying entity. Derivatives can be used for a number of purposes, including insuring against price movements, increasing exposure to price movements for speculation or getting access to otherwise hard-to-trade assets or markets.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on financial derivatives. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Hedging
    • Credit default swap
    • Futures
    • Mortgage-backed securities
    • Economic function of the derivative market
    • Market and arbitrage-free prices
    • Counter party risk

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Financial Derivatives” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
