Vol 14 (2003)

Volume 14 is a regular issue of the journal with four research articles and one conceptual note. As with previous volumes, the diversity of topics and locations is very considerable.

In the first paper, Chooi-Leng Ang, Razman Mat Tahar and Rusdi Murat report on an empirical study of the extent to which e-commerce is diffused in the Malaysian Shipping Industry, with a particular focus on EDI.

The second paper, by Peter Mbile, Anne DeGrande and D. Okon, involves an integration of participatory resource mapping and GIS in forest conservation and natural resource management in Cameroon.

In the third paper, Higgo Higgo writes on the difficulties associated with implementing information systems in large bureaucracies in less developed countries, focusing on the case of the Sudanese Ministry of Finance.

The fourth paper, written by Christian Wagner, Karen Cheung, Fion Lee and Rachael Ip, considers how e-government initiatives can be enhanced in developing countries through the implementation of virtual communities with knowledge management techniques.

In the last paper, Rex Navarro and V. Balaji, write briefly about discussions currently under way concerning the establishment of a virtual university for the semi-arid tropics of India, South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
