Research in Labor Economics is a biannual series that publishes new peer-reviewed research on important and policy-relevant topics in labor economics applying economic theory and econometrics, often with an international focus.

Over the years RLE has continued to present important new research in labor economics, particularly regarding worker well-being. It covers themes such as labor supply, work effort, schooling, on-the-job training, earnings distribution, discrimination, migration, and the effects of government policies.
