The emergence of electronic business is one of the most profound changes that
revolutionized the process of buying, selling, and exchanging products and
services over the Internet. Organizations and customers have access to vast
amounts of data, information, and services that are not limited in time or
space. There is a growing demand in electronic business research that will
provide insights into issues, challenges, and solutions related to the
successful application and management aspects of electronic business.

The primary objective of the International Journal of E-Business Research
(IJEBR) is to provide an international forum for researchers and practitioners
to advance the knowledge and practice of all facets of electronic business.
Emerging e-business theories, architectures, and technologies are emphasized
in order to stimulate and disseminate cutting-edge information into research
and business communities in a timely fashion. The secondary objective of this
journal is to develop a comprehensive framework of e-business by taking a
multidisciplinary approach to understanding e-business and its implications on
businesses and economies. This journal will serve as an integrated e-business
knowledge base for those who are interested in contributing to the advancement
of e-business theory and practice through a variety of research methods
including theoretical, experimental, case, and survey research methods.
