Research in Labor Economics is a biannual series which publishes new research on important and policy-relevant topics in labor economics.

The Series, published by Emerald, aims to apply economic theory and econometrics to analyze important policy related questions, 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 on worker well-being.
