Emotional Finance is one of the fastest growing fields of behavioural finance examining the impact of emotions in financial markets.
In contrast to the elements of behavioural finance that focus on the influence of heuristics and judgement biases on financial decision-making, emotional finance investigates the role and impact of emotions on financial decisions. The dynamics of emotions and human unconscious have been proved to affect human behaviour. There is a growing literature that examines this field of psychology in relation to financial markets.
Hence, the objective of this special issue is to bring together current theoretical and empirical research on the issues highlighted above and investigate their implications with regard to the finance and investments industry.

Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Emotions in financial markets
* Investor sentiment
* Emotional corporate finance
* Market anomalies and human emotions
* Neural aspects of decision making
* Emotional assets including art, wine etc.
* Social media sentiment and financial markets

The submission deadline is 01 October 2016 but please submit as early as possible.
