Elsevier Announces the Launch of Journal of Commodity Markets

Amsterdam, April 30, 2015

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, Journal of Commodity Markets.
Commodity markets are important for economic development and growth and are at the center of many geopolitical issues. Despite these facts, compared to equity, currency, and fixed-income markets, commodity markets have been relatively under-researched.

The journal aims to publish high-quality research in all areas of economics and finance related to commodity markets. The purpose of this inter- and trans-disciplinary journal is to stimulate international dialog among academics, industry participants, traders, investors, and policymakers with mutual interests in commodity markets.

Co-Editor, Professor Marcel Prokopczuk, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, said of the launch,“Also on behalf of my colleague co-Editors Professors Betty Simkins and Sjur Westgaard, I’d like to state how happy we are with our roles as founding editors of the Journal of Commodity Markets. We believe that there is a strong demand for a journal that covers all aspects of commodity markets. Supported by our editorial board, we are certain that we will establish the journal as leading one in the field.”

Donna de Weerd-Wilson, Executive Publisher of Economics and Finance journals at Elsevier added, “With the strong support from many international commodities experts, 39 of whom now make up our editorial board, we are confident that this new addition to our Economics and Finance journal portfolio will be a success. With its launch we hope to provide a new outlet for the overall commodity sector.”
