Information for Authors

All submissions and correspondence should be sent to Nadia Bert (


Competition and Regulation in Network Industries strives for a fast double-blind peer-review process, with initial screening and two referees, striking a balance between securing quality and retaining topicality.

As a rough indication, articles should be around 6,000 to 10,000 words and book reviews 800 to 1,200 words. This should be seen as indicative only.

Submissions of articles and book reviews should include:
- the authors’ names and affiliations (please mention professional involvement with relevant parties discussed in the paper, if applicable),
- co
ntacting details of the corresponding author (especially email address).

Additionally, submissions of articles should include:
- an abstract of no more than 200 words,
- three or four keywords.

As Competition and Regulation in Network Industries is multidisciplinary, it does not have uniform citation rules. However, the authors are asked to use the guidelines for citations. In case a reference style is missing, the Journal of Economic Literature ( provides useful information on economics citation rules and the Common Market Law Review for legal citation rules. 

Submissions should follow ‘standard’ formatting rules, including line distance, font and font size and page margins; for instance, 1.5 line distance, Times New Roman 12 pt, and page margins of 2.5 cm. Please label tables and figures unambiguously.

Figures should be provided camera ready. No pay charges are levied on authors or institutions. 20 free offprints will be provided for each accepted paper; additional offprints will be available to order. The author will receive one set of page proofs. The corrections must be returned to the publishers without delay to avoid hold-up in the production schedule. A charge may be made for any substantial alteration to the manuscript at this stage. 

Acceptance for publication entails the transfer of copyright to the publisher for a period of one year from the date of publication. During that period no part of the article may be reproduced in any form whatsoever, e.g. by photocopying, microfilm, digitally, or any other means, without prior written permission from the publisher. After this period reproduction is only allowed with prior notice to the publisher and with full and complete reference to the original publication in CRNI.
