We are happy to announce the new publication of The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research: Volume 5, Number 3: Managerial & Commercial Applications
The editorial team for this issue:
Shu Schiller, Wright State University, USA
Brian Mennecke, Iowa State University, USA
Fiona Fui-Hoon Nah, Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA
Scholars and practitioners are confronted with an apparent contradiction: on the one hand, the business case for virtual worlds appears to offer great promise; while on the other hand, the observed returns and demonstrable successes are often absent or negligible. This special issue on “managerial and commercial applications” of virtual worlds aims to highlight research that makes a significant and novel contribution in theory and practice about virtual worlds in the business domain.
In this last issue of 2012 you will find three papers on the topic, two “Assembled” papers and one “Think Piece.”
We are also happy to let you know of the following:
Our next issue Assembled (2013) will be led by JVWR Managing Editor Prof. Yesha Sivan, Metaverse Labs & Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo, Israel
We just came back from Orlando Augmented Reality workshop and are already planning our next major JVWR event – in Milan, Italy. So mark your calendars around December 16-18, 2013 (http://icis2013.aisnet.org/).
