The Review of Network Economics seeks to help policy makers, academics, and practitioners keep informed of new research and policy debate in network economics and related subjects that are relevant to the study of network industries.

By publishing high quality research on topical issues relevant to network industries, it is hoped readers will be able to gain a deeper understanding of the economic issues involved and that this will improve the quality of decision making by private and public organisations, and debate among researchers. The articles can cover specific network industries, or may deal with general issues that have relevance to a number of different network industries, including topics in the economics of networks, regulation, competition law, or industrial organisation. Papers that provide insights into policy debates are especially welcome, as are up-to-date surveys, book reviews, and comments.

Since 2002, the Review of Network Economics (RNE) has been a leading forum for new insights in network economics, providing essential reading for anyone interested in the economics of network industries. Publishing high quality theoretical and empirical research, along with surveys and reviews that either cover specific industries or have relevance to multiple different network industries, the journal seeks to keep academics, policy makers, and practitioners informed of new research and policy debate in network economics and related subjects. Specific sectors of interest include (but are not limited to) energy, market exchanges and intermediaries, media, on-line services, payment systems, postal services, software platforms, telecommunications and transportation networks. Published quarterly in March, June, September, and December, the Review of Network Economics is committed to promoting a deeper understanding of the economic issues that underpin such network industries.

The founding editors (John Panzar and Julian Wright) also wish to express their deep appreciation to Henry Ergas who kindly sponsored the initial development of the journal and has enabled the full text of the 2002-2008 issues to be made freely available.
