, par Claire de Bellefon

The journal Games (ISSN 2073-4336) is currently running a Special Issue entitled "The Economics of Privacy : Privacy and Data Protection in a Digital World". Prof. Dr. Dorothea Kübler (of WZB Social Science Center Berlin, Germany) and Prof. Dr. Hans-Theo Normann (of Duesseldorf Institute for Competition Economics, Germany) are serving as Guest Editors for this issue.

This Special Issue of Games is dedicated to the economics of privacy. In a digital world, topics like online privacy and the protection of personal data have become increasingly important. We invite game theoretical and experimental contributions on the economics of privacy. Potential topics include, but are by no means limited to, the valuation of personal data, online search, data security, information aggregation, targeted advertising, price discrimination, as well behavioral effects in digital markets. We list below further keywords that may help to identify suitable topics for the Special Issue. [...]

We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance (sophie.sun@mdpi.com or games@mdpi.com).

Games is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes.

We are very pleased to announce that Games has been accepted for funding by the Knowledge Unlatched initiative (http://www.knowledgeunlatched.org). As of 2018, the Article Processing Charges (550 CHF) for papers published in the journal will be partially/fully covered via the Knowledge Unlatched crowd-funding mechanism. Please note this is a pilot program experimenting ways to support authors in the humanities and social sciences fields publishing in open access format.
