News from Valuation Studies

Dear all,

In 2020, Valuation Studies initiated a new phase. As explained in our website,, “the overall aim of this new phase is to strengthen Valuation Studies as a platform for curated academic conversations on valuation. In order to achieve this goal, we have introduced an important shift in how we manage submissions. New submissions will need to be in relation to an open Theme Call. The purpose of this change is to foster a more focused discussion around particular issues of valuation”.

This message is to announce two new open Theme Calls and the publication of a full themed issue.

The two new open Theme Calls are:

  • Theme Call: Valuing Energy: unpacking value in energy resources, technologies and processes. Editors: Tomas Ariztia (Universidad Diego Portales), Béatrice Cointe (Mines Paris-PSL and CNRS), Trine Pallesen (Copenhagen Business School), and Antti Silvast (LUT University). Full call here:
  • Theme Call: Comparing, Categorizing, Valuating: Entangled Modes of Ordering. Editors: Editors: Thomas Müller (Bielefeld University), Leopold Ringel (Bielefeld University), Elisa Ronzheimer (Elisa Ronzheimer), Jørgen Sneis (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich). Full call here:
