Publication Opportunities

Selected high quality papers presented at the conference will be invited for submission to a special issue of the Economic Notes (EN) journal. The papers must fall within the scope of EN, that is to provide a forum for rigorous theoretical and empirical macro and micro economic and financial analysis of the development, evolutions, and perspectives of crypto assets. All the submissions will be subject to the standard EN review process.

Paper Submission

Papers must be submitted via the web form. Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission: August 15, 2020
  • Abstract acceptance: August 27, 2020
  • Paper submission: September 27, 2020
  • Conference: October 27, 2020

Abstract submissions must include titles, authors, abstracts, topics, etc. (everything except the final PDF of the paper). The program selection criteria include the nature of the research topic, the economic implications of the research, and the academic quality of the research design. Authors may submit only work that does not substantially overlap with work that is currently submitted or has been accepted for publication to any other peer-reviewed conference/workshop with proceedings or a journal. We consider double submission serious research fraud and will treat it as such. Note that it is acceptable for papers to appear in non-peer-reviewed formats (for example, as technical reports or in online archives such as ePrint).
