Platform economy database

Eurofound’s platform economy database provides information on publications, articles, court cases, initiatives and other outputs related to platform work, or those forms of work that are organised and mediated through online platforms (websites and apps). This resource provides metadata for each entry, such as the name of the author, year of publication, whether it concerns an open access or subscription-based material, a brief description of the content and where available a web link to a source from which eligible users may access content.

Research carried out prior to the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union on 31 January 2020, and published subsequently, may include data relating to the 28 EU Member States. Following this date, research only takes into account the 27 EU Member States (EU28 minus the UK), unless specified otherwise.
