Business is changing.  New products and services are becoming commercially viable.  Methods for organizing and running companies are evolving.  New relationships are characterizing interactions among companies, their customers, suppliers, partners, and competitors.  Political, social, and economic change is affecting the business climate on global, national, and industrial levels.  All of this change is influenced by the cost, functionality, and availability of computers, networking, and telecommunications.  What data are available to describe these changes? How do changes in one domain affect others? What theory do we have to explain what is happening, and why it is happening? The International Journal of Electronic Business is a double-blind refereed and authoritative reference dealing with working and potential e-business models and applications as well as emerging issues of interest to professionals and academics. The objectives of the IJEB are to develop, promote and coordinate the development and practice of electronic business methods. It also aims to help professionals working in the field, business educators and policy-makers to contribute, to disseminate information and to learn from each other. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy. The IJEB is seeking articles that will present data and theory to help social scientists, business people, and policy makers find answers to related business and technology questions.  Emphases will also be on the related social, political and economic issues as well as emerging issues of interest to professionals and academics.  The journal publishes original and review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, and commentaries.  We welcome both submissions and inquiries from potential authors.  Questions should be addressed to the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Dr. Eldon Y. Li, at <> or <eli @>.  To submit a paper, please follow the guidelines in the "Submission of Papers" link on the IJEB homepage.
