Call for Papers: Environmetrics Special Issue on Climate and Sustainable Energy Econometrics and Statistics

Environmetrics invites contributions special issue on Climate and Sustainable Energy Econometrics and Statistics from academics and policy researchers to develop new econometric and statistical methods to be applied to climate, environmental, and sustainable energy problems and foster academic understanding and policy maker decisions.

Of particular interest, but without limiting the focus, are the following themes of interest:

  1. Disentangling anthropogenic contribution to climatic change:
  • Investigate the anthropogenic impact on climatic change versus natural evolving patterns.
  • Explore the behavioural responses of individuals in the face of changing climatic conditions, with emphasis on economic and financial implications.
  1. Modelling the green transition
  • Examine the role of renewable energy in the transformative process for industrialized countries.
  • Investigate economic and financial implications associated with the transition to green energy and a carbon-free economy.
  1. Understanding nonlinearities in climatic phenomena
  • Explore nonlinear aspects, such as tipping points, and identify structural breaks in intensity and variability.
  • Analyze signals of persistent or permanent changes in the natural environment using time series analysis and econometrics.
  1. Novel methods and applications
  • Encourage applications ranging from modelling environmental and climatic phenomena, including temperatures, droughts, precipitations, storms and hurricanes, sea-level rise, ice sheet melting, and glacial dynamics, to disentangling anthropogenic and natural sources of radiative forcing.


Authors are invited to submit original research papers aligning with the abovementioned themes. Submissions can employ various methodologies, including but not limited to econometrics, statistics, and spatial analysis. Manuscripts should contribute significantly to the understanding of climate and sustainable energy challenges.


Authors should submit their manuscripts through the online submission system, adhering to the guidelines provided on the Environmetrics website. All submissions will undergo the standard peer-review process.
