Special Issue of the Journal of

Information Technology Success Factors and Models in Developing and
Emerging Economies

Additional information about the special issue may be available at the
special issue website at:

Information technology (IT) projects continue to suffer from frequent
cost and time overruns and failure to fully deliver on the expected
benefits to the users or the organization. Furthermore, what
determines the success or failure of information technology
implementations and use in developing and emerging economies may
differ substantially from generally accepted success factors in highly
developed countries. Developing economies are defined by low gross
national income per capita, and are generally characterized by low
standards of living, a weak industrial and commercial base, and a poor
infrastructure. Still developing economies that exhibit robust,
continual economic expansion, resulting in fast growing per capita
income, and which have administrations that are dedicated towards
developing the commercial base and improving the infrastructure are
termed emerging economies. IT is generally considered to be a prime
factor in the economic and national development of these regions.

The aim of this special issue is to provide a forum for research and
practice specifically directed at the factors and models that
contribute to the success (or failure) of IT implementation and use
for economic and national development in developing and emerging
economies. Submitted papers, while focusing on specific success
factors or exemplary models, must explain how the work makes a
contribution to better understanding the role of IT in economic or
national development, affecting people's lives and their communities,
Submitted work will be evaluated for methodological soundness,
empirical completeness, and academic rigor, as well as originality and
interestingness. Possible contributions may include, but are not
limited to the following:
- Organizational culture and IT success factors in developing or
emerging economies
- Factors and models that contribute to (or may inhibit) technology
bringing about economic development
- Case studies looking at successful (or failed) models of IT use in
developing or emerging economies
- Critical success factors in Web service adoption in developing or
emerging economies
- Differences in success perception of IT between developing/emerging
and developed countries
- Cultural factors and models in successful IT adoption and use in
developing countries
- Factors and models that may make IT a successful tool for achieving
global competitiveness
