Special Issue on "Exploring Industrial Change in the Platform Economy" announced
The Routledge journal Industry and Innovation (2015 impact factor: 0.870) announces a special issue on "Exploring industrial change in the platform economy".
This is an excerpt from the call for papers:
This Special Issue seeks papers that examine the ways in which digital platforms are transforming market competition, firm strategy, labor-management relationships, government-industry relations, supply chains, R&D, innovation, and other industrial processes. With the ubiquitous mobile internet, the impacts of digital platforms are as profound on developing and developed nations; thus, the Special Issue welcomes contributions from all nations and exploring various industrial sectors.
While the research on platform economics has progressed significantly (Eisenmann et al. 2006; Hagiu and Wright 2015), there has been less industry- or sector-level research on the changes driven by the intermediation of platforms (for an exception, see Boudreau 2010). Our goal is for the Special Issue to assemble state-of-the-art articles about how digital platforms are reorganizing competition.
Initial submissions are due by 30 September 2017.
Publication is planned for the Spring of 2019.
Paper submissions will undergo rigorous editorial screening and double-blind peer review by a minimum of two recognized scholars.
