Special Issue on: "Emerging issues in Internet, Social Media and E-Marketing"

Guest Editors:

Technological developments in internet, mobile and social media marketing are arguably having significant impact on the practice and theory of technology marketing. Technological products have certain characteristics that pose particular requirements in terms of the marketing effort needed to reach their markets; on the other hand, technological innovations have themselves transformed the marketing landscape, presenting novel opportunities and previously unknown risks.

In such an environment, this special issue aims to provide a forum for publishing original research covering contemporary electronic and social media marketing issues and their various links to technological products, services and facilities.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Contemporary Marketing Issues (ICCMI) 2012, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit papers for this call.
