Competition and Regulation in Network Industries
The Journal Competition and Regulation in Network Industries is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal that meets highest academic standards. Resolutely interdisciplinary in nature, CRNI favors articles that combine economic, legal, policy and engineering approaches. We are looking for articles that link theory with practical relevance: they should make contributions to theory and methodology development, yet always building on solid empirical research, both quantitative and qualitative. Articles that establish links between the evolving network industries and/or take into account the growing role of digitalization and innovation as well as the emergence of new network industries in the form of digital platforms are of particular interest. In addition to the industrialized North, CRNI particularly encourages articles that address competition and regulation issues in the network industries of emerging countries worldwide.

Cities are increasingly congested. This is as much due to passenger transport as it is to the transport of goods (logistics). In response, cities – often in the absence of any national-level regulation – are trying to regulate themselves, often by putting requirements...
