Economia dei servizi is a new academic journal (founded by Professor Fabio Gobbo in 2006) published by il Mulino, the leading Italian academic press in the field of economics. Economia dei Servizi aims to develop a virtual community for scientific and academic debate to advance our knowledge on the service’ sector. It pays particular attention to the contribution provided by services to economic growth and social welfare. The Review aims at consolidating a new «Culture of Services», balancing theoretical and scientific features with operative issues. As stated in the journal’s subtitle ("Mercati, Istituzioni e Management"), it proposes an interdisciplinary approach involving applied economics, management, communication studies, law and political sciences, becoming a forum for different methodological approaches. It publishes articles and essays on key issues of the economic debate on services and related items (innovation, tourism, commerce, public services, transportation, logistics, environment, media, real estate, policy evaluation, health economics) trying to build a new industrial perspective on these themes, while touching the most relevant problems of the ever changing economic reality.

Each issue has: an "Introductory Note" dealing with current economic debate and the focus of the issue; an "Articles and Essays" section with scholarly contributions; a "Monographic" part with a guided selection of articles where the most relevant topics on economics of services are deeply investigated; a focus on institutional changes and entrepreneurial case-studies ("Institutional Panorama" and "Esperienze d’impresa"); - "Book Reviews" devoted to works on the Italian and international literature on these themes.
