Electronic Markets - The International Journal on Networked Business is a leading-edge scientific journal that aims at advancing the understanding and practice of electronic markets. Upon foundation in 1991, Electronic Markets was the first journal to report on developments and latest trends related to the exciting and rapidly evolving research field of electronic markets and related issues. Electronic Markets was a pioneer in the field of scientific publication on e-commerce research and since evolved to an internationally recognized journal published by Springer. Especially the inclusion in the Thompson Reuter Social Science Citation Index in 2010 and the good positioning in several international journal rankings such as ACPHIS (EM ranked "A") and the Australian Business Deans Council - Journal Ratings List (EM ranked "A") demonstrate that Electronic Markets succeeded in establishing itself among the leading information systems journals. Electronic Markets is a multidisciplinary journal whose audience includes:
- Scientists / scholars from various disciplines with an interest in the relationships between advances in information and communication technology, new forms of value creation, and social change
