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

The articles are of three genres: (1) results from ongoing or completed important research endeavors, (2) critical survey articles, (3) and symposia on policy related topics.

Published articles received thousands of citations, increasing from 39 annually in 1983 to 163 annually in 2011, exhibiting about a 4% per annum growth rate.
