The Research Stream


The Research Stream

The Bled eCommerce Conference has featured research papers since its inception in 1987. A fully refereed Research Stream was established in 1995, running four parallel streams of about 50 papers each year, with an acceptance rate generally around 50%.

Since 1995, a strategic partnership with the leading journal, the International Journal of Electronic Commerce (IJEC), has resulted in the publication of a series of Special Sections of the journal. Also, since 1999, the Research Stream has included an Outstanding Paper Award, whose winners are listed elsewhere on this web-site.



How To Get the Papers

The full-text is available directly from this page for all of the c. 250 papers since the 14th conference in 2001. Go to the relevant Conference entry below.

In addition, the papers have been loaded into the e-Library of the Association for Information Systems (AIS), and are accessible by AIS members.

Orders for earlier hard-copy or CD versions should be addressed to the Assistant to the Conference Chair, Gregor Lenart.
