Call for Edited Book Proposals
Publisher: IGI Global
Submission Due Date: June 10, 2007

Series Editor-in-Chief: In Lee, Ph.D., Western Illinois University, USA


E-business technologies and applications continue to evolve in many different directions and are now key strategic assets in business organizations. New e-business applications that have significant implications for the corporate strategies are being developed constantly. For example, wireless networks complemented by a growing range of mobile commerce devices and applications are having a significant impact on the ways business organizations serve customers and run their daily operations. Currently, e-business research comes from diversified disciplines ranging from marketing, psychology, information systems, accounting, economics to computer science. The AEBR plans to serve as balanced interdisciplinary references for researchers and practitioners in this area.

The AEBR intends to provide researchers, instructors, professionals, and students in higher education with a coherent collection of books that deal with the most current information about the concepts, issues,  applications, technologies, and trends in the e-business area. Editing a book grants researchers a  valuable opportunity to enhance their area of expertise and to provide many other scholars with the  opportunity to benefit from the contents of the publication. The edited books will help researchers and practitioners exchange their research ideas and practical experiences, discuss challenges and opportunities, and present tools and techniques in all aspects of e-business. The AEBR encourages researchers to submit edited book proposals. Book proposals for empirical, theoretical, and conceptual studies are equally welcome for the book series publications. Practical implications of the research are emphasized in all book proposals.
