Instructions for Authors
1. Aims and Scope
The Review continues to publish research papers on all aspects of industrial organization,
broadly deﬁned. A main focus is on competition and monopoly, in their many forms and
processes and their effects on efﬁciency, innovation, and social conditions. Topics may
range from the internal organization of enterprises to wide international comparisons.
The Review also is increasing its interest in papers on public policies such as antitrust,
regulation, deregulation, public enterprise, and privatization. Papers may deal with any
economic sector, and any developed economy.
The Reviewcontinues its primary interest in ideas which can be veriﬁed by econometric
evidence, case studies, or other real conditions. But the Review also seeks papers which
advance signiﬁcant theories of industrial organization and policy. Papers using abstract

English so that general readers can evaluate the content.
The Review welcomes submissions from any source, and the Editors will make every
effort to have papers reviewed quickly and to give prompt decisions. The Editors will also
