New Publication: Handbook of Research Methods and Applications in Empirical finance
A new book, edited by Professors Adrian Bell, Chris Brooks and Marcel Prokopczuk, seeks to present the quantitative techniques that are commonly employed in empirical finance research together with real world, state of the art research examples.
The book, titled ‘Handbook of Research Methods and Applications in Empirical finance’ is divided into 18 chapters, each written by international experts in their fields. The book’s approach is to describe a question or issue in finance and then to demonstrate the methodologies that may be used to solve it. All of the techniques described are used to address real problems rather than being presented for their own sake and the areas of application have been carefully selected so that a broad range of methodological approaches can be covered.
The Handbook of Research Methods and Applications in Empirical Finance is aimed primarily at doctoral researchers and academics who are engaged in conducting original empirical research in finance, as well as researchers in the financial markets and also advanced Masters-level students who are writing dissertations.
