International Journal of Electronic Commerce
Mobile Commerce (m-commerce)
Special Issue Overview
Mobility represents a natural human state, hence mobile commerce (m-commerce) has been hailed as the complement, and in many aspects a natural successor to traditional desk-bound e-commerce. The proliferation of smartphones and wireless networks has brought the dream of seamless mobility and always-on connectivity closer to reality – albeit not without new challenges related to technologies, platforms, systems, applications, and business models to name but a few.
The goal of this special issue is to report frontier research addressing the current status and future prospects of m-commerce and to reflect on business innovation and social transformation through mobility. The issue aims to offer an integrated view of the field by presenting approaches originating from and drawing upon multiple disciplines.
The special issue welcomes theoretical, experimental, or survey-based studies that make a significant novel contribution to the field. Submissions should describe original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Theoretical foundations of m-commerce
• Mobile-driven business models
• User behavior and innovation diffusion in m-commerce
• Context-aware and location-aware business
• Mobile communities and social networking
• Strategies, policies, economics and societal implications of m-commerce
• Privacy, security, trust and regulation in m-commerce
• Innovation in horizontal and vertical applications: mHealth; mGovernment; mLearning; mEntertainment; mPayments; mMarketing/Advertising; mSCM/CRM; mParticipation; and others
Manuscripts should be sent electronically to the guest editors. All submissions should conform to the journal’s formatting guidelines, which are available online at http://www.gvsu.edu/business/ijec/. Authors are encouraged to submit extended abstracts to the guest editors prior to the submission deadline for early feedback and indication of suitability.
