Towards this end, my research has been published (or is forthcoming) in academic journals such as Communications of the ACM, International Journal of Electronic Commerce, Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, Journal of Global Information Management, Information & Management, Information Systems Journal, and Omega. I have also presented my research at international conferences including the Americas Conference on Information Systems, International Conference on Information Systems, European Conference on Information Systems, and the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.
