MDPI Econometrics (ISSN 2225-1146): *25% Discount* Special Issue of Discrete-Valued Time Series: Modelling, Estimation and Forecasting

Time Series 2020


★ Econometrics (ISSN 2225-1146)
★ Special Issue "Discrete-Valued Time Series: Modelling, Estimation and Forecasting"
★ Call for papers
Dear Colleagues,
This Special Issue is concerned with publishing a range of new contributions to the field of Discrete-Valued Time Series. Both methodological advances and applications are encouraged; papers which combine the two are particularly sought. Contributions may involve univariate and, particularly, multivariate time series models; these may be either observation- or parameter-driven. Topics include specification and estimation, as well as inference methods.
Count time series are usually non-negative integers, but papers dealing with binary and categorical variables are also welcome. Methodology may be classical or Bayesian in nature. There is, as of yet, a limited literature on goodness-of-fit methods in this area of modelling and so we would welcome contributions in this field. Other ripe topics for advancement would include forecasting and its applications, change-point detection and diagnostic and model testing methods. General dynamic analysis including impulse response analysis would also be of interest.
The Special Issue seeks to bring together a burgeoning stream of literature across a range of fields including, but not limited to, medicine; epidemiology; finance; and economics, discussing advances.
Overall, the main thrust of the Special Issue is to develop and refine extant methods for analysis of count time series data and to advance knowledge and applicability in novel and exciting directions.
