Vol 41 (2010)

Volume 41 is a regular issue of EJISDC with seven papers describing topics in Cameroon, India (2), Malaysia, Pakistan and the UAE (2).

In the first paper, Roger Etoundi, Marcel Ndjodo, Priso Ndedi and Ghislain Alo'o draw on Ant theory to define a protocol dealing with load balancing between employees for an efficient management of available human resources in the public sector in developing countries in order to achieve a better quality of service management. They present an illustrative example in the Ministry of Public Service and Administrative Reform (MPSAR) in Cameroon.

In the second paper, Hanudin Amin and T. Ramayah investigate the factors influencing the use of short-messaging-service banking in Malaysia. This study focuses on the relationships among attitude, subjective norm, perceived security and privacy (PSP) and intention to use SMS banking.

In the third paper, Abdulrahman Al-Moalla and Dong Li evaluate and investigate the case of e-government procurement in relation to organisational issues in the UAE.

In the fourth paper, Geoff Walsham draws on secondary data to to analyse the contribution of ICTs towards the achievement of specific development goals with a focus on India. The analysis shows that many ICT-based initiatives have taken place over the last decade and some positive effects have resulted, though the beneficiaries are almost always not the poorest or most disadvantaged groups.

In the fifth paper, Allah Nawaz and Ghulam Muhammad Kundi explore the demographic diversity in higher education institutions in North-West Frontier Province, Pakistan, documenting their impacts on perceptions of the teachers, students and administrators about the nature and roles of eTeaching, eLearning and eEducation.

In the sixth paper, Pradeep Kumar Misra discusses the possibilities, benefits and action plan associated with a dedicated satellite that can meet the health education needs of the Afro-Asian nations.

In the last paper, Walter Skok and Saad Tahir investigate the issue of knowledge sharing and knowledge management in an Arab context, by identifying the main issues and obstacles which arise as a result of the Arab culture, specifically in the UAE.
