Call For Papers
John Naisbitt, in his book, Global Paradox, says "the bigger the world economy, the more powerful its smaller players." Big international companies are deconstructing themselves and creating new structures to survive in the new world order. Concepts like reengineering, rightsizing, network organizations and the virtual corporation are fast becoming the common theme in business practice. International strategic alliances are also on the increase based on the notion that no single company and no single country can alone be a successful player in the new global game. The organizational applications and managerial implications of these technology resources warrant a forum for the discussion of these issues. The Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) has an important role to play in providing such a forum for researchers and practitioners to share leading-edge knowledge in the global information resource management area.

The journal accepts submissions in the following categories:

*Research Article - Contributions to this section are full research papers. The research must be complete and make substantial theoretical and/or empirical contributions to knowledge in the field. Papers using various theoretical and methodological approaches are invited.

*Research Note - This section welcomes research that is novel and complete but not as comprehensive as to qualify as a full research paper, e.g., exploratory studies and methodological papers. Rigor and quality are still essential in this section.

*Research Review - Reviews should be insightful and carefully crafted articles that conceptualize research areas and synthesize prior research. Research review articles must provide new insights that advance our understanding of the research areas, and help in identifying and developing future research directions. Research review articles can be between 3000-8000 words.

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts that are consistent to the following submission themes:

(a) Cross-National Studies. These need not be cross-culture per se. These studies lead to understanding of IT as it leaves one nation and is built/bought/used in another. Generally, these studies bring to light transferability issues and they challenge if practices in one nation transfer (and if they don’t, they shed light on how or why not).

(b) Cross-Cultural Studies. These need not be cross-nation. Cultures could be across regions that share a similar culture. They can also be within nations (subcultures, ethnicities, etc.). These studies lead to understanding of IT as it leaves one culture and is built/bought/used in another. Generally, these studies bring to light transferability issues and they challenge if practices in one culture transfer (and if they don’t, they shed light on how or why not).

(c) JGIM continues to welcome single country studies but encourage authors to consider weaving the country context throughout the manuscript thereby situating the study in the country context. In addition, findings of these studies can be compared to similar research from better represented nations.

(d) Studies of the development, implementation, management and use of IT in multinational, transnational, inter-national and global organizations.
