Reviews and Testimonials

Effective communication and collaboration will increasingly be strategic differentiators for organizations of all types in the twenty-first century. Information and communication technologies have a critical role to play in helping organizations to achieve these goals. By publishing new theoretical and practical research findings, as well as providing a forum for broader discussion, the International Journal of e-Collaboration contributes to the understanding and advancement of this important domain.

– Sid L. Huff, Victoria University, New Zealand

E-collaboration is about sharing information within and between organizations for the purposes of planning, coordinating, decision making, process integration, improving efficiency and effectiveness. Organizations exchange information through people, process and technology, and increasingly rely on e-collaboration technologies to make that happen. The International Journal of e-Collaboration fills an important gap by focusing on this specialty which includes all forms of e-collaboration whether it be through email, supply chain management, enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management, project management, or virtual teams collaborating on an academic assignment.

– Jerry Fjermestad, New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA

The evolving area of IT-supported collaboration represents a huge potential for organizations of all kinds. Reflecting the broad nature of this area, the related research activities are currently scattered across several different communities (CSCW, HCI, MIS, DSS, etc.). The IJeC serves the important and timely purpose of providing a common forum for integrating and discussing the research experiences and perspectives from these communities. The journal will thus represent a valuable resource for any manager, researcher, or educator with an interest in e-Collaboration.

– Bjorn Erik Munkvold, University of Agder, Norway

Leading researchers and practitioners predict that in the future all technology will be collaboration technology. The International Journal of e-Collaboration offers a timely and critical platform to foster further understanding how collaboration technologies can improve organizational work and private life.

– Gert-Jan de Vreede, University of Nebraska at Omaha, USA

IJeC will offer a new and most needed tool to discuss, explore, evaluate and understand the importance of IT-enabled collaboration on boosting innovation and productivity. This new journal will pave the way for next generation collaborative mobile virtualized eorking environments with a focus on workers interacting with their environments and collaborating with each other, having access to all the (virtualized) resources required to carry out their tasks and enhancing their capabilities.
