Special Issue on: "Revenue Management in Practice: Competition through Electronic Commerce and Online Auctions"

Guest Editors: Yifan Xu, Hongyu Li and Qiying Hu, Fudan University, P. R. China

This special issue highlights the practice of revenue management in the environment of networking, competition, and online operations. The management of service operations is becoming increasingly important nowadays. For example, the revenue from the service sector of Shanghai, China, exceeded 60 percent in 2006. There are tremendous opportunities to explore applications of revenue management in services. A new trend in this area is the revenue management of network operations, an important research direction for scholars to pay attention to. Another trend is that revenue management problems in practice have to deal with revenue management problems in the face of competition. Moreover, the development of electronic commerce provides new opportunities for revenue management applications, such as combinations of revenue management with Internet services and online auctions.

This special issue is seeking to publish rigorous papers that help promote revenue management practice in the environment of networking, competition, and online operations. Papers that are the joint work of practitioners and academicians are particularly welcome.
