Proposing Special Issues

We are willing to evaluate and consider new proposals for Special Issues on current and innovative research areas of interest to the ecommerce community. Proposals will be evaluated by the Editorial Committee based on the following criteria:

3.     What is the perceived probability of success of the proposed special issue?

Proposals must include at least two guest editors from two different continents, and must be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief (ncerpa(S),utalca.cl). You will have guidance and assistance in preparing the special issue from the JTAER.
