Electronic Commerce Research and Applications aims to create and disseminate enduring knowledge for the fast-changing e-commerce environment. A major dilemma in e-commerce research is how to achieve a balance between the currency and the life span of knowledge.
Electronic Commerce Research and Applications will contribute to the establishment of a research community to create the knowledge, technology, theory, and applications for the development of electronic commerce. This is targeted at the intersection of technological potential and business aims.
E-commerce is a multi-disciplinary area, which should be developed in co-operation with existing fields such as Information Systems and Technology; Marketing, Finance and Supply Chain Management; Business Strategy and Management; Public Policy; Computer Science and Telecommunications; and Legal Studies. We will solicit papers on current technologies from these areas, as well as publish papers on completely new topics. We also seek proposals for special issues on new topics in e-commerce that will create new directions for research.
Electronic Commerce Research and Applications is inviting submission of articles in the following fields:
Agent-based commerce; electronic auctions; e-business models; B2C and B2B EC; consumer behaviour; customer relationship management and data mining; pricing and marketing; digital economy; e-government, public policy and digital divide issues; electronic payment systems; IT and e-services; exchanges and electronic marketplaces; e-commerce in supply chain and inventory management; legal issues in e-commerce; industry studies and case analysis; economic and management science modelling; organizational and theory-building research; empirical studies of e-commerce problems; behavioral studies of e-commerce issues; recommender systems; protocols, technology and process standards for e-commerce; transformation of industries; security and trust; credit card and smart card applications; mobile-commerce and ubiquitous computing; inter-organizational systems in e-commerce; emerging technologies and technological innovation.
We also encourage Methodological studies: these should be complete and ready for implementation, rather than papers that propose new frameworks.Hide full Aims & Scope
