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 Many international organizations have called for an increased usage of renewable energy as a means to reduce CO2 emissions and address climate change. This paper uses a large panel data set of 117 countries and recently developed panel estimation techniques to answer the question by how much does increasing the share of non-fossil fuels in electricity generation reduce the subsequent carbon dioxide emissions. For the full sample, we find long-run displacement elasticities of approximately -0.75, indicating that a one percent increase in non-fossil fuel electricity generation reduces CO2 emissions per capita from electricity generation by about 0.75%. Long-run displacement elasticities for non-OECD (OECD) countries are approximately - 0.90 (-0.60). These results have a number of policy implications.
