The title of this year;s special section of selected papers, whose initial versionswere presented at the “Economics and Electronic Commerce,” and “Information Technologyand Competitive Strategy” mini-tracks of the 2001 Hawaii International Conferenceon Systems Science (HICSS), reflects the increasing convergence of ideas fromEconomics and Information Systems (IS) research. This convergence has been occurringover the last several years and is related to the developments in e-commerce. ISresearch has been rapidly coming of age, driven by the ever-increasing importance ofinformation technology (IT) in the marketplace, and the need for managers, investors,policy-makers, and the public to understand how to more effectively navigate in ourhighly technological world. But as IS research matures, so too do the demands thatpractitioners put upon the information that our research produces in terms of its relevanceand usability. Although the importance of scientific rigor and of analyticalprecision are undiminished, the messages that emerge from our research for the marketplaceneed to be crafted and targeted better than ever before.
