Special Issue on:

Modern Models and Superior Strategies: Cases from the Cutting Edge of E-

International Journal of E-Business Research
ISSN 1548-1131
eISSN 1548-114X
Editor-in-Chief: In Lee, Western Illinois University

July/August 2007

Electronic business has grown beyond its e-commerce roots of marketing and
traditional transaction support into a deep and diverse venue for
enriching customer relations, collaborating with business partners,
facilitating intrabusiness exchange, enabling electronic government, to
name but a few manifestations.  There has been a period of experimentation
and refinement since the rise of the World Wide Web which is by no means
over: new technologies are continually emerging, and new business models
and strategies that leverage those technologies follow very shortly

The deployment of enabling e-business technologies can be evolutionary and
tactical, with a cautious and measured strategic aim of improving internal
efficiency, for example.  But other technologies have fueled the rapid
emergence of revolutionary new business models that were not possible
before.  These models can reshape the strategic forces of entire
industries and the fortunes of many players in the global economy.  New
technologies and new business models can debut together, as in the case of
Apple’s iPod and iTunes content delivery model. And it is common that
enabling technologies emerge first, with numerous different e-business
models and their strategies fighting for dominance. And as Apple’s iPod
and examples such as digital photograph processing show, a revolutionary e-
business model can emerge even when the technology underpinning the
product or service is not strictly an information technology.

Though new technologies and models are continually appearing, we believe
it is a good time to take stock of the significant and revolutionary
milestones in our recent unprecedented growth and development in e-
business. What revolutionary models have come into existence? Which
competing models have prevailed and why?  What strategies drive their
deployment in the competitive arena? What are the strategic effects on
industries? Are traditional characterizations of business strategy
appropriate or adequate to describe these strategies or their effects, or
have we entered a new era requiring new strategic perspectives?

Our goal for this special issue of the International Journal of E-Business
Research is to present a collection of papers that capture the most
dramatic examples of revolutionary new e-business models and illuminate
the nature of the strategic thinking, competition, and effects that
accompany the winners. Case studies are likely the most effective form for
submissions, but other approaches will be considered. All submissions
should strive to tell a coherent story that prioritises a description of
the e-business model, a comparison to its competitors, the strategic
stances of the model and its competitors, and the history and outcomes of
the competition.

Topics of interest include - but are not limited to - studies of:
• Business-to-consumer marketing models
• Consumer-to-business communication, customisation, and
negotiation models
• Business-to-business negotiation and collaboration models
• Product and service delivery models
• Supply chain integration, improvement, and service models
• Government and not-for-profit service and negotiation models
• Channel development and management models
• Vertical and horizontal B-to-B exchange and distribution models
• Intrabusiness and business-to-employee models
• E-business payment and security models
• Extant, emerging, and needed strategy models for e-business
• Digital content distribution  models
