Vol 55 (2012)

In Volume 55 we present a special editorial, as well as 6 regular papers. In the editorial, the journal's two co-editors provide some feedback and commentary on the review process, and identify topics where we would like to see more submissions in the future.

In the first paper, Kituyi and Amulen from the Makerere University Business School in Uganda consider a modified CMM model for SMEs in developing countries, with Uganda as a specific example.

In the second paper, Neupane, Soar and Vaidya from the University of Southern Queensland, Australia, report on research undertaken in Nepal into perceptions of trust in public e-procurement systems and of their anti-corruption capabilities.

In the third paper, Kemppainen, Parviainen, Tedre and Sutinen from the University of Eastern Finland present a risk identification tool that is aimed at assisting IT professionals and organizations to identify sources of challenges in international development co-operation projects. The tools can also be applied in the design of appropriate countermeasures for overcoming risks before the project enters the implementation phase.

In the fourth paper, Chevers, Duggan and Moore from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica explore the impact of process, people and perception on IS quality and IS success in the context of software development, drawing on data from the Jamaican context.

In the fifth paper, Piaptie from the University of Douala, Cameroon, considers how cybercafés can withstand competitors that offer alternative access to the Internet. Drawing on data from three towns in Cameroon, he suggests that cybercafés need to diversify their offerings.

In the last paper, Bello-Bravo and Baoua report on the results of a short survey conducted by students from Maradi (Niger) with farmers, teachers in rural areas, informal entrepreneurs and women, in which several 3D animations were shown on mobile phones: cholera prevention, neem seed extract for insects pest control and triple bagging for storage to prevent post harvest looses. The authors report on the usefulness of content and the ease of technology use.
