Call For Papers For A Special Issue of Jurnal Ekonomi Malaysia


The Impact of Covid19 Pandemic on the Economy: Policy Measures and Effectiveness

The outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has triggered the implementation of lockdown or declaration of state of emergency in many nations worldwide. Such pandemic-inflicted movement control has adversely impacted many facets of life, with the economic sector being the worst hit, thus dampening the world economic outlook. The much-awaited economic stimulus packages have been launched by many coronavirus-hit economies to ameliorate the effects of the pandemic, with its effectiveness yet to be unveiled.

In light of the above, JEM is inviting submissions for the special issue to enlighten research community and policy-making authorities on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • The socio-economic impacts of COVID-19
  • Proposal for economic policies to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19
  • Measuring or forecasting the effectiveness of COVID-induced economic stimulus packages

The guest editors are Prof. Kabir Hassan, PhD (University of New Orleans) and Prof. Muhammad Shahbaz, PhD (Beijing Institute of Technology). Please note that the submission deadline is on 31 October 2020. Accepted papers will be published in January 2021.

To be considered for publication in the special issue, please submit your manuscript via the online portal http://ejournal.ukm.my/jem/login and select the article type “Special Issue”. All submissions will be peer-reviewed.
