Special issue on "The politics and economics of Chinese Internet industry"

The first issue of the 2018 series of International Communication Gazette.

We started from over 50 submissions at the 2016 ICA pre-conference and ended with four, and only four, papers in this special issue. With personal regrets that we cannot include quite a few papers that I think are highly interesting, I hope the four that remained do provide readers insightful perspectives to both the historical development and the current nuances of Chinese Internet industry. Our editorial is free to access. Table of content is attached and can be accessed at
