The Special Section on the Economics of Electronic Commerce, guest-edited by Eric K. Clemons, Robert J. Kauffman, and Thomas A. Weber, offers three papers on its subject. The works analyze the strategic issues of e-commerce using the tools of economics. They address, respectively, managing information access in the intraorganizational systems to balance the access needs of diverse employee categories with the security needs of the enterprise; value creation by the networks of firms organized on the information-technology platforms; and the adoption and diffusion of innovative business practices within and across enterprises. The Guest Editors will introduce the papers to you more closely.
