Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue aims to be a forum for the presentation of entropy-based applications in economics, finance, and management studies. The concept of entropy originates from thermodynamics, but it is utilized in many research fields to characterize the complexity of a system and to investigate the information content of a probability distribution. Entropy is a general measure, and therefore, many definitions and applications of entropy have been proposed in the literature.
Areas of interest include but are not limited to the following wide range of topics:
- Entropy-based applications in portfolio selection, asset pricing, and risk management;
- Entropy measures as indicators for systematic risk;
- Entropy optimization approach in economics and finance;
- Entropy-based applications in market microstructure research;
- Shannon theory in fuzzy multiple criteria decision-making methods (FMCDM) with applications to economic and management problems;
- Structural entropy in Bayesian network applications in economic, finance, and management.
Theoretical and empirical contributions addressing any of the aforementioned issues are especially welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
