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 There is a growing movement for both individual investors and large institutions to divest from oil companies, and from fossil fuel producers in general. This paper investigates the implications of doing so, by comparing three portfolios: (1) a portfolio that includes fossil fuel producing companies and utilities, (2) a portfolio that replaces fossil fuel producing companies and utilities with clean energy companies, and (3) a portfolio without fossil fuel producing companies, utilities, or clean energy companies. Using a range of measures, we find that portfolios that divest from fossil fuels and utilities and invest in clean energy perform better than those with fossil fuels and utilities. We also find that risk-averse investors would be willing to pay a fee to make this switch, even when trading costs are included.
