Aims & Scope

The Internet and the World Wide Web have brought a fundamental change in the way that individuals access data, information and services. Individuals have access to vast amounts of data, to experts and services that are not limited in time or space. This has forced business to change the way in which they conduct their commercial transactions with their end customers and with other businesses, resulting in the development of a global market through the Internet. The emergence of the Internet and electronic commerce raises many new research issues. The Electronic Commerce Research journal will serve as a forum for stimulating and disseminating research into all facets of electronic commerce - from research into core enabling technologies to work on assessing and understanding the implications of these technologies on societies, economies, businesses and individuals. The journal concentrates on theoretical as well as empirical research that leads to better understanding of electronic commerce and its implications.

Topics covered by the journal include, but are not restricted to the following subjects as they relate to the Internet and electronic commerce:

  • Dissemination of services through the Internet;

  • Intelligent agents technologies and their impact;

  • The global impact of electronic commerce;

  • The economics of electronic commerce;

Aims & Scope

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; Computing and Informatics; Marketing, Finance and Supply Chain Management; Business Strategy and Management; Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning; Data Science and Business Data Analytics; Public Policy; 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, including but not limited to the following topics: Agent-based commerce; electronic auctions; e-business models; B2C and B2B EC; consumer behavior; customer relationship management and data mining; recommender systems; Internet search engines and Web mining; big data analytics; social media and commerce analytics; responsible and trustworthy artificial intelligence; pricing and marketing; digital economy and digital transformation; e-government, public policy and digital divide issues; electronic payment systems; sharing economy; (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 modeling; organizational and theory-building research; empirical studies of e-commerce problems; behavioral studies of e-commerce issues; 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.

Aims & Scope

The common thread of articles published in Decision Support Systems is their relevance to theoretical and technical issues in the support of enhanced decision making. The areas addressed may include foundations, functionality, interfaces, implementation, impacts, and evaluation of decision support systems (DSSs). Manuscripts may draw from diverse methods and methodologies, including those from decision theory, economics, econometrics, statistics, computer supported cooperative work, data base management, linguistics, management science, mathematical modeling, operations management, cognitive science, psychology, user interface management, and others. However, a manuscript focused on direct contributions to any of these related areas should be submitted to an outlet appropriate to the specific area.

Examples of research topics that would be appropriate for Decision Support Systems include the following:

1. DSS Foundations e.g. principles, concepts, and theories of enhanced decision making; formal languages and research methods enabling improvements in decision making. It is important that theory validation be carefully addressed.

2. DSS Functionality e.g. methods, tools, and techniques for developing the functional aspects of enhanced decision making; solver, model, and/or data management in DSSs; rule formulation and management in DSSs; DSS development and use in computer supported cooperative work, negotiation, research and product.

3. DSS Interfaces e.g. methods, tools, and techniques for designing and developing DSS interfaces; development, management, and presentation of knowledge in a DSS; coordination of a DSS's interface with its functionality.

4. DSS Implementation - experiences in DSS development and utilization; DSS management and updating; DSS instruction/training. A critical consideration must be how specific experiences provide more general implications.

5. DSS Evaluation and Impact e.g. evaluation metrics and processes; DSS impact on decision makers, organizational processes and performance.

Aims & Scope

Internet Research is an international, refereed journal that aims to describe, assess and foster understanding of the role of wide-area, multi-purpose computer networks such as the Internet.

The Internet continues to gather influence and momentum, and it becomes increasingly important to be aware of the potential applications of this powerful resource throughout professional, political, personal and academic life. We therefore strongly encourage research that develops theoretical insights and understanding on topics and issues addressing the potential social, ethical, economic and political implications which arise from mass public access to information resources. 

Coverage includes but is not limited to:

  • Societal and ethical issues (e.g., internet addiction, cyberbullying, online fraud, spreading of rumours, invasion of privacy, infringement of intellectual property rights, and social inclusion/exclusion)

  • Economic implications (e.g., electronic commerce, mobile commerce, and social commerce)

  • Managerial and organisational issues (e.g., Internet use practices, management policies and governance mechanisms)

  • Political implications (e.g., civic engagement, collective action, Internet-related policy research)
