Subject: [isworld] CFP: ISR Special Issue on Digital and Social Networks

Call for Papers: ISR Special Issue 
THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN DIGITAL AND SOCIAL NETWORKS 

Guest Editors

Overview 
In recent years, considerable research attention has been devoted to the
impact of digital networks on various types of economic activity e.g.,
impact of information technology on firm boundaries, dynamics of
electronic markets, etc.  Simultaneously, research in the field of
strategy and organization theory has increasingly focused on the social
embeddedness of economic activity e.g., over the last decade, we have come
to know a lot more about the role that social ties play in the production
of trust and in reducing both search and transfer costs in the diffusion
of knowledge across individuals and firms.  In other words, it is now
widely accepted that both digital and social networks play a crucial role
in the structure and conduct of economic activity.

Yet, research on the interplay between digital and social networks remains
in its infancy.  Digital networks are designed by and used by people,
individually or collectively.  Thus, digital interaction among individuals
and organizations is almost always embedded in, is influenced by, and in
turn influences a social network.  The primary goal of the proposed
special issue of Information Systems Research is to foster research on
this interplay between digital and social networks.

Research Topics 
We invite scholars from a broad range of disciplines to submit to this
Special Issue.  Papers may encompass any or all of the following:
theoretical analyses, modeling, simulation, or empirical studies.  Authors
may examine the interplay between digital and social networks in any of a
variety of possible contexts.  Special topics of interest include, but are
not limited to, the following:

-- The social structure (size, location and position of actors, etc.) of
digital networks and its relationship with knowledge flows and innovation;
-- Social governance in open source software development networks and its
contribution to value creation and appropriation;
-- The social embeddedness of electronic knowledge management systems; 
-- The evolution and propagation of social influence through electronic
communications
-- Digital artifacts such as signatures and avatars and their role in
developing and sustaining identity in virtual communities;
-- The role of social ties in digital networks that encompass a firm and
its suppliers and customers;
-- Interplay between social ties and electronic trading through B2B
markets;
-- Anonymous digital auction marketplaces such as eBay and the role and
significance of social mechanisms such as reputation and trust
-- The ability of digital channels to transmit social and tacit
information and the impacts of information transmission on the
sustainability of social structures such as virtual teams and communities
-- Digitally mediated social capital  creation, maintenance, and impacts
-- Digital networks that span national boundaries and the role of social
factors such as culture and norms in their viability

Deadlines and Submission Instructions 
Submissions to the special issue are due on July 15, 2006.  All
submissions must adhere to the format guidelines for Information Systems
Research.  Authors should note that, in submitting a manuscript to be
reviewed for this special issue, they also incur an obligation to serve as
potential reviewers for other manuscripts.

The review process will proceed as follows: 

-- The editors will perform an initial screening of all manuscripts
submitted.  Papers that do not fit the theme of the special issue or are
deemed to be at too preliminary a stage will be returned to authors within
two weeks of the submission deadline.
-- Papers that pass the initial screening will be subject to a formal
review process.  A maximum of three review cycles will be used; papers not
accepted by the third review will be rejected.  The third review cycle
will be initiated only if the editors believe that the requested revisions
can be accomplished in a relatively straight forward manner.
-- At the end of the first review cycle, authors whose papers are moving
forward will be invited to participate in a research workshop to be held
at the University of Maryland, College Park.  This workshop will provide a
forum for presentation and developmental discussion of papers.  The
workshop will likely be held in the third week of November, 2006.
-- Authors must adhere to a strict schedule for submission and revisions. 
The first round of reviews will be provided within 3 months of submission
 revised manuscripts must be returned within 3 months of receipt of the
reviews.  The second and third review cycles will follow a 2 month
schedule for review and resubmission.
-- In special circumstances, rejected papers may be submitted as regular
submissions to ISR.  The editors will state this in their rejection
letter.

Authors wishing to determine the suitability of their work for the special
issue may submit a pre-proposal of no more than two pages to any of the
Co-Editors by March 31, 2006.
