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 and Andréanne Tremblay (2021). "Does the Weather Influence Global Stock Returns?", Critical Finance Review, 10, 207-249.

Abstract We hypothesize that weather’s emotional effects depend on climate and season, and examine the relation between weather (sunshine, wind, rain, snow, and temperature) and index returns separately for each region (cold, hot, and mild countries) and month. We find strong effects of all five weather variables in 49 countries from 1973 to 2012, and all but the sunshine effect vary across temperature regions and seasons. The systematic patterns of weather effects across climates and seasons suggest that weather influences stock returns through investor mood, and that the emotional effects of the weather are stronger and more pervasive than previously documented.

Abstract The effect of weather and climate variation on complex manufacturing and the retail sector and their operations can be significant, unpredictable, and costly. This paper provides a novel conceptual framework for a sustainability platform for competitive advantage. It encompasses metrics of performance, business processes, and product and process innovation to encapsulate risk of weather conditions. A sustainable platform requires deep collaboration across the entire eco-system: the supply chain, the life cycle of production, processes, and managerial functions, and distribution end-points, including recycling and disposal. Sustainability platforms and their implications in practice are discussed.
