Management Insights, a regular feature of the journal, is a digest of important research in business, management, operations research, and management science. It appears in every issue of the monthly journal.
“Effects of Information-Revelation Policies Under Market-Structure Uncertainty” is by Ashish Arora and Ramayya Krishnan, Carnegie Mellon University; Amy Greenwald, Brown University; and Karthik Kannan, Purdue University.
Electronic B2B marketplaces like www.ariba.com are growing in importance. In third-party electronic marketplaces, sellers face uncertainty about the number of competitors they face in each market session. Since typically the same set of sellers repeatedly compete across market sessions, sellers can alter their bids to learn about their competitors, depending on how the electronic market place is organized, and specifically, how bid information is disclosed.
The authors compare two commonly used setups—one where all bids are disclosed after the bidding round is over, and one where only the winning bid is disclosed. They show that on average the price paid by buyers is higher when only the winning bid is disclosed.
As a result, buyers are better off in markets where all bids are disclosed at the conclusion of the bidding round.

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
