Special Issue of Electronic Commerce Research Journal on Trust and
Privacy Aspects of Electronic Commerce

Although the internet has opened the door for businesses and consumers
across the globe, many issues and challenges remain in order to take
full advantage of this unprecedented opportunity. The lack of trust in
online transactions is one of the main reasons for the relatively low
electronic commerce adoption. Research on trust in e-commerce typically
views trust as an important condition of successful commercial exchange.
Consumers? trust in their online transactions is vital for the sustained
progress and development of electronic commerce. More specifically,
businesses engaged in electronic commerce can take advantage of current
technologies that allow them to collect vast amounts of information
about their customers. Therefore, techniques guaranteeing privacy in the
management of customers? data in Web stores can help building trust by
giving users a feeling of control on the vendor?s handling of their
personal information.

The main objective of this Special Issue is to report the
state-of-the-art research in this fast-growing area, and to propose new
methods, techniques and approaches for enhancing both trustability and
privacy of the electronic commerce applications.
