Scope and policy

Objectives and Editorial Policies

The Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research is devoted to the publication of original works related to electronic commerce and related fields, or works that present the results of studies and research concerning the joint activities of the segments of business and information technology, both theoretical and applied.

In that context, electronic commerce is understood as an inherently interdisciplinary area of research, with both an investigative and analytic purpose. Objectives include the study of the phenomena correlated to business practices and market processes enabled by Internet and Web technologies, social, legal, educational and cultural concerns, personal privacy and security aspects, communications technologies, and mobile connectivity among many other topics of interest in this rapidly evolving field. The activities of the segment of e-commerce are considered as those developed by public and private institutions.

The ecommerce segment includes, therefore, components of several other fields, as computer science, psychology, economics, organizational theory, and the natural sciences.
