Vol 58 (2013)

In Volume 58 we present seven regular papers.

In the first paper, Gomez reports the results of a content analysis of 984 papers published in the ICTD field from 2000-2010. This is the first major review of the field and provides a useful analysis of the research undertaken to date, as well as pointers to future research.

In the second paper, Ramirez-Gomez, Brwon and Tjon Sie Fat report on a participatory GIS mapping project that was designed to identify ecosystem services in Southern Suriname. A number of lessons learned that can be applied elsewhere are provided.

In the third paper, Olupot and Mayoka propose a framework for the adoption of Electronic Customer Relationship Management systems in Uganda. 

In the fourth paper, Duncan and Rahman introduce a conceptual framework for multi-purpose cadastre that can be applied to land acquisition and ownership rights. 

In the fifth paper, Aliyu, Mahumd, Tap and Nassr review the design features of Islamic websites that focus on providing religious content. The results of the study have implications for the design of Islamic websites.

In the sixth paper, Akinnuwesi, Uzoka,  Olabiyisi, Omidiora and Fiddi report on the results of an investigation into the perception gap between end-users and software developers in Nigeria regarding end-user participation in software development

In the last paper, Mpazanje, Sewchurran and Brown explore and describe the as-lived experiences of stakeholders in IS projects, specifically examining (through the lens of Actor-Network theory) the case of an IS project implementation in Malawi.
