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.

Ming Dong, Marie Dutordoir, and Chris Veld (2018). "Why Do Firms Issue Convertible Bonds?", Critical Finance Review, 7, 111-164.

Abstract We conduct interviews with financial managers in Australia, Canada, the U.K., and the U.S. to study the question why companies issue convertible bonds. For the vast majority of the firms, convertible bonds are chosen because managers find straight debt too costly. Convertible bonds are preferred to equity either because of the pecking order or because of managers’ perceived equity undervaluation and share dilution. Our results suggest that managers time the issuance of convertible bonds based on the demand of the investors and the misvaluation of the firms’ debt and equity. The evidence lends considerable support to the theory of management-investor differences in opinion about firm’s risk, but yields very little support to the theories of risk shifting, sequential financing, or backdoor equity.
