Dear friends,


Hope you had a nice Friday and you can enjoy your weekend ahead.

Here I attached a Special Issue of Revista Galega de Economia (Galician Economic Journal) organized by Esteban Fernández from the University of Oviedo, Mònica Serrano from the University of Barcelona (both in cc) and myself.

I know some of you have been working on topics related to the economic effects of COVID-19 so we would really appreciate it if you want to send us something. The deadline is 15th of December but as soon as the paper is accepted (2 reviewers, blind process) it will be published online.

You can see a description of the journal and the call for papers in the pdf attached. It is an open access, Scopus journal that published its first number in 1992, so it could serve very well to give even more visibility to some of the work done.


Insights on a broad spectrum of themes are welcomed, including, but not restricted to:

o The spatial distribution of the economic impacts

o Analysis of specific sectors affected (Health services, Tourism activities, etc.)

o Consumer behaviour

o Labour market effects

o Recovery paths and post-lockdown scenarios

o Trade and supply chain disruptions


Hope you find it interesting and you consider sending an article.

All the best and take care,


Andre Carrascal
