Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Abstract This study aimed to examine the effect of Chinese carbon regulatory policy on the debt financing costs of carbon-intensive corporations. We use a large sample covering the years between 2005 and 2018. The results of the difference-in-differences approach show that creditors increased debt financing costs for carbon-intensive corporations considerably due to the low-carbon policy, hence decreasing these corporations' profitability and value. Additional analyses show that the dynamic policy effect gradually increased from 2010 on and weakened later in 2015 owing to China's economic slowdown and the local stock market crash. The impacts of low-carbon policies on corporate debt financing costs are more pronounced for state-owned corporations and those with low analyst followings. Our findings provide corporations and governments with crucial insights into mitigating climate transition risk.
