Call For Papers
Electronic Commerce Research and Applications aims to create and disseminate enduring knowledge for the fast-changing e-commerce environment. A major dilemma in e-commerce research is how to achieve a balance between the currency and the life span of knowledge.

Electronic Commerce Research and Applications will contribute to the establishment of a research community to create the knowledge, technology, theory, and applications for the development of electronic commerce. This is targeted at the intersection of technological potential and business aims.

E-commerce is a multi-disciplinary area, which should be developed in co-operation with existing fields such as Information Systems and Technology; Marketing, Finance and Supply Chain Management; Business Strategy and Management; Public Policy; Computer Science and Telecommunications; and Legal Studies. We will solicit papers on current technologies from these areas, as well as publish papers on completely new topics. We also seek proposals for special issues on new topics in e-commerce that will create new directions for research.

Electronic Commerce Research and Applications is inviting submission of articles in the following fields:

Agent-based commerce; electronic auctions; e-business models; B2C and B2B EC; consumer behaviour; customer relationship management and data mining; pricing and marketing; digital economy; e-government, public policy and digital divide issues; electronic payment systems; IT and e-services; exchanges and electronic marketplaces; e-commerce in supply chain and inventory management; legal issues in e-commerce; industry studies and case analysis; economic and management science modelling; organizational and theory-building research; empirical studies of e-commerce problems; behavioral studies of e-commerce issues; recommender systems; protocols, technology and process standards for e-commerce; transformation of industries; security and trust; credit card and smart card applications; mobile-commerce and ubiquitous computing; inter-organizational systems in e-commerce; emerging technologies and technological innovation.

We also encourage Methodological studies: these should be complete and ready for implementation, rather than papers that propose new frameworks.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Emerging Technologies in E-Commerce Operations and Supply Chain Management
Submission Date: 2021-03-31

The past two decades have witnessed the introduction of many emerging technologies, such as blockchain, advanced robotics, augmented reality, additive manufacturing, the Internet of things (IoTs), machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI), to firms’ operations and extended supply chains. With the rapid development of the internet, e-commerce has been widely connected with operational intelligence supported by cloud computing. Digital production generates a massive amount of data which could improve operational capacities. E-commerce operations and supply chains are driven by Industry 4.0 technologies. Looking into the future, these emerging technologies could fundamentally change the business models with which firms have worked for a long time. Hence, it is important and crucial for us to identify the value of emerging technologies for the success of e-commerce. Inevitably, emerging technologies help tackle emerging challenges that conventional technologies cannot even realize. However, they could also bring about new problems such as infringement of users’ privacy, additional costs for system upgrading and staff training, etc. Thus, researchers strive to develop novel models and analytical techniques to evaluate the impacts of new technology adoption on e-commerce operations and supply chains to facilitate optimal decision-making and achieve high operational efficiency. In this special issue, we aim to publish e-commerce operations and supply chain management research with real industry cases and applications. Each real industry case should discuss unique problems relating to the Special Issue topic while providing tailored e-commerce operations and supply chain management solutions that can address the specific issues in such cases. Electronic Commerce Research and Applicationsis a well-established and reputable electronic commerce journal with a long publishing history. It publishes both applied and theoretical articles that contribute to the field of e-commerce operations and supply chain management, with the development and application of quantitative approaches for problem-solving and optimal decision-making in operations. We invite submissions that present original and high-quality research works on the applications of emerging technology in e-commerce operations and supply chain management studies with real practices. We consider submissions that introduce novel research problems and concepts, develop rigorous methodologies to tackle the problems, and propose innovative applications. Submissions can employ various research methods including, but not limited to, empirical, analytic modeling, theoretical investigation, data-driven methodologies, and simulation. Successful real-world implementation is strongly encouraged. The main topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: Value of augmented reality on e-commerce operations and supply chains Cyber-physical systems with automatic manufacturing in operations and supply chains Blockchain-enabled operations and supply chain management Using information technology and data analytics for managing e-commerce operations and supply chains Drone technologies in e-commerce operations and supply chain management AI/Machine learning and IoTs for improving e-commerce operations and supply chain efficiency Managing e-commerce operations and supply chain with the application of additive manufacturing Using advanced technologies to improve social and environmental impacts in e-commerce operations and supply chain management Using emerging technologies to manage e-commerce operations and supply chain during the outbreak of COVID-19
