Special Issue "Game Theoretic Analyses of Multi-Sided Markets"
A special issue of Games (ISSN 2073-4336).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2016).
Multi-sided markets and platforms (e.g., credit cards, digital devices, online auction sites, etc.) have become increasingly important in commerce and exchange, as well as for social interaction. This Special Issue of Games is devoted to the study and analysis of multi-sided markets and platforms, including—but not limited to—game theoretic analysis of multi-sidedness, platform competition, interaction within multi-sided markets, and empirical and experimental research that tests theoretical results or that identifies areas where theory needs to be developed. Of particular interest are Internet auction sites, payment systems, ISPs, media markets, social media, search markets, cryptocurrency markets, and (financial) exchanges, as well as related topics. We welcome authors with research on these topics to submit their manuscripts for this Special Issue of Games.
