OVERALL OBJECTIVES OF THE BOOK
The intent is to offer readers a single source for insight into the
evolution of business functions and opportunities created by
technologies related to Web 2.0. Daily the news media covers the shift
in essential business practices and consumer buying behavior brought
about by the Internet. Indeed, these transformations occur as a result
of shifts in consumer behavior as much as they are methods of improving
efficiency, access, and profitability for businesses, small and large.
Enterprise 2.0 will introduce readers to these shifts, breaking the
overarching theme into three essential components: 1) business
practices, 2) managerial issues, working and work life, and 3) marketing
in an online world. The first book in the three-volume set will focus on
general business issues related to Web 2.0. The second will focus on
work and work life given the managerial advances and employee
opportunities created by Web 2.0. The third and final book in the set
will feature consumer behavior and concerns related to marketing in a
Web 2.0 environment. Topics are noted in the proposed table of contents
and author bios are provided later in this document.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
* Principles of Enterprise 2.0
* Perpetual Beta, Continuous Improvement in the Virtual Age
* Web Security for Businesses
* Achieving Sustainability with the Internet
* Leveraging the Web for Product Development
* The Interaction between People and Technology and the Effect on Design
* Social Software Design
* Widgets and Other Applications as Profit-Generation Tools
* Secure Content Management

Because the book is intended as a book for a wide audience, it should be
written in a readable, interesting style. You should not, for example,
shy away from anecdotes and descriptions. However, you should avoid
jargon, unless it is necessary to the topic, and then you should
introduce the vocabulary terms with a definition of the term. To avoid
the temptation of making chapters appear to be research articles,
authors should include no more than 40 sources in their chapter.
Each chapter manuscript should be 7,000 - 9,000 words (about 20 - 30
typed, double-spaced pages), including sources and suggested readings.
Contributions of about 5,000 words will be considered as short reports.
The publisher allows some use of images in the volumes, but the number
is limited. If you wish to use an image, please ensure that it is
necessary to clarify the point you are making and deliver the
information. It would be useful for you to let me know if you will be
requiring the use of images in your chapter.
Do not embed images, figures, or tables in the text of your chapter.
Indicate placement with the instructions "Place Figure X.X about here".
Include images in separate files labeled to indicate placement.
Any photos and graphics used must be camera-ready and submitted in hard
copy and electronic form. Assume images will appear in black and white.
At the end of your chapter, include a list of "Suggested Readings" of
works that deal with the topic of your chapter.
