2. Electronic market structure (started 2003)

lectronic market structure

 

Market structure is one of important research strands in the industrial organization area. Typically, the distribution of firm size is investigated to study market status and trends. In this research, online reputation ratings for C2C online auctions are used as the indicator of online trader’s capacity. In this way studying the online reputation ratings can reveal the dynamics of electronic market.
