The RAND Journal of Economics[1] (usually called Rand Journal or simply Rand ) is a scholarly journal of industrial organization.

The purpose of the Rand Journal is "to support and encourage research in the behavior of regulated industries, the economic analysis of organizations, and more generally, applied microeconomics."[1] The journal publishes both theoretical and empirical papers.

First published in the spring of 1970, it was originally called The Bell Journal of Economics and Management Science (1970–1974) because it was a product of AT&T's Bell Labs' economics group.[3] Several years later it was retitled The Bell Journal of Economics (1975–1983). In 1984, after transfer to the RAND Corporation, it acquired its present name.
