  • Nachruf Hermann Göppl 30. August 2023 Geschrieben von Prof. Dr. Axel F.A. Adam-Müller

    Sehr geehrte Mitglieder,

    die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Finanzwirtschaft trauert um ihr Gründungs- und Ehrenmitglied Prof. Dr. Hermann Göppl, der am 17. August 2023 im Alter von 86 Jahren verstorben ist.

    Mit Hermann Göppl hat die DGF einen Wegbereiter der ersten Stunde und einen herausragenden Impulsgeber verloren. Seit ihrer Gründung im Jahr 1993 unter seinem Vorsitz ist die DGF in besonderer Weise von seiner visionären Sichtweise auf die Weiterentwicklung der Finanzwirtschaft geprägt.

    Hermann Göppl war eine bemerkenswerte Persönlichkeit, deren Lebenswerk einen tiefgreifenden Einfluss auf die akademische Gemeinschaft hatte. Er war einer der Vorreiter für die internationale Ausrichtung der Forschung und Lehre im Bereich Finanzwirtschaft und verfolgte zudem mit großer Konsequenz und Tatkraft die empirische Fundierung der Finanzmarktforschung. Dies brachte ihm große Reputation in der internationalen Finance- und betriebswirtschaftlichen Community ein.

    Wir werden Hermann Göppl stets in ehrenvollem Andenken behalten. Unser Mitgefühl gilt seiner Familie und seinen Angehörigen.

  • Call for Abstracts/Papers: German Business Economics, Journal of Business Economics (Special Issue) 13. April 2023 Geschrieben von Prof. Dr. Axel F.A. Adam-Müller


    Wolfgang Breuer, Aachen
    Jannis Bischof, Mannheim
    Günter Fandel, Hagen
    Christian Hofmann, Munich
    Peter Witt, Wuppertal

    Aim and Scope of this Special Issue:

    In recent decades, research in business economics in Germany has increasingly become internationalized. However, unlike in natural sciences, knowledge in business economics is typically bound to a specific place and time. Against this backdrop, we call for contributions that take up a specifically German perspective in one of the following ways:

    1. The contributions may address an aspect that is characterized by a particular tradition of research in Germany. In other countries, particularly in Anglo-Saxon countries, these questions were not in the same focus or were not examined from the same perspective. Examples could be given from the fields of business valuation and production theory, but it is important to question why there are „German peculiarities“ in these areas.
    2. The contributions may come from areas where the institutional environment plays a special role, as is the case, for example, in business taxation or accounting. This naturally raises the question of a national and thus a German perspective on certain problems. Potential questions could speak to the determinants or the interpretation of the institutional framework and also address its economic consequences. Such research should still offer conclusions that are generalizable beyond the German context.
    3. In general, the question arises as to the extent to which empirical results for other countries can be transferred to Germany, since cultural peculiarities may also play a role in addition to the institutional framework. However, such research must be firmly based on a comprehensive theoretical foundation.
    4. Even in sub-areas where normative questions are paramount, especially in business ethics, the German perspective on certain issues may be special. However, if there are already differences in goal definition, there will be differences in problem solving as well.
    5. Each country has its own specific problems or overall economic/societal framework conditions that require special solutions, for example, based on the given production factor endowment (few raw materials, well-educated workforce, aging population, high immigration), which could lead to specific German questions and solutions.

    The call is open to researchers from all sub-disciplines of business economics. Theoretical and empirical papers with a clear quantitative focus are particularly welcome. Empirical papers should be based on theoretically derived hypotheses and state-of-the-art hypotheses testing. Papers must be written in English and must not contain any reference to the identity of the authors.

    Please submit an (extended) abstract of about 1,000 words to by 06/30/2023. The authors of the selected abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper by 11/30/2023. They must not have been published previously. Submitted papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and – upon acceptance – published in a special issue of the Journal of Business Economics at the beginning of 2025. Author guidelines are available at:

  • Call for Papers: Replication Studies in Finance and Accounting, Journal of Business Economics (Special Issue) 13. März 2023 Geschrieben von Prof. Dr. Axel F.A. Adam-Müller


    Wolfgang Breuer, Department of Finance, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany

    Christian Hofmann, LMU Munich School of Management, Munich, Germany

    Aim of this Special Issue:

    Business economics as an applied science is strongly rooted in empirical research. Unlike in natural sciences, where laws of nature are assumed to be generally valid over time and space, this is not necessarily the case for real-life economic relationships. First, empirical economic findings in one region of the world cannot generally be assumed to hold true for institutional or cultural backgrounds in other societies. A prominent example is the difference in market reactions and outcomes between capital market-oriented Anglo-Saxon countries and bank-based financial systems like those in Germany or Japan. Second, empirical results may lose significance over time due to technological advancements or changes in human behavior (possibly even in response to these former studies!), which may render frameworks and insights obsolete that were valid in the past. For instance, behavioral anomalies that were previously exploitable may disappear once they are revealed in scientific publications. Third, from today’s perspective, it may be that previous studies exhibit fundamental and so far undetected weaknesses in methodology or data quality, which need to be disclosed. Especially the current surge in big data approaches has considerably expanded opportunities for empirical testing.
    Against this backdrop, replication studies in business economics in general, and in finance and accounting in particular, gain special relevance. Of course, it is important that these empirical works are well-grounded in theory, so that the conception of the respective replication study already shows why an empirical test of earlier works could be of interest. We call on researchers to make such contributions to the field of finance and accounting.

    Papers must be written in English and must not contain any reference to the identity of the authors.

    Please submit an (extended) abstract of about 1,000 words to by 05/31/2023. The authors of the selected abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper by 11/30/2023. They must not have been published previously. Submitted papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and – upon acceptance – published in a special issue of the Journal of Business Economics at the beginning of 2025.
