You are cordially invited to submit your paper for consideration to the special issue of Journal of Research in Emerging Markets. We would like to announce our upcoming themed issue on "COVID-19 and the Global Economy". We are looking for scholars with creative thoughts and novel research ideas.

Since its first outbreak December 2019, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has quickly spread all over the world, affecting over 200 countries and territories around the world. As of October 30, 2020, more than 45 million people had been infected and more than one million people had died. Numerous countries around the globe have adopted very strict and unprecedented measures to limit the further spread of the virus and reduce the number of future victims. The novel coronavirus has an enormous influence on international financial, social, managerial, and economic development in many regions and countries, and poses a great challenge to local epidemic control and prevention systems. 

The potential topics of the collection will cover a wide set of issues dealing with the influence of COVID-19 on the global economy, international financial markets, and management practices. In particular, the scope of the issue encompasses the impact of COVID-19 on companies, social development, people's lives, management practices, education, schools and universities, economy, finance, as well as forecasting, prediction, and risk management techniques. The editors are also interested in different aspects of risk management, including risk modeling, simulation, assessment, and mitigation.
