CBA Journal of Electronic Commerce Engages in Partnership with Asian Universities

I am also pleased to announce a new partnership that brings together the Journal of Electronic Commerce Research (JECR), National ChengChi University (Taiwan), and Harbin Institute of Technology (China). National ChengChi University, one of the top universities in Taiwan, has agreed to sponsor $60,000 (U.S. dollars) to provide release time, travel funds, and administrative expenses for JECR over the next three years. HIT will fund the printing and distribution of the hard copy version of the journal that is also available online.

As you may know, JECR is one of the most reputable journals in the E-Commerce field and was included in Thomson Reuters’ Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) in 2011.  Founded in 1999 by CBA professors Melody Kiang and Robert Chi, they have been Co-Editors in Chief since then and have always strived to produce the best quality journal possible. In addition to the resources provided by National ChengChi University, CBA will also provide one release time per year to show our support for the journal.
