Platforms for electronic commerce, mobile commerce, and online social networking are making huge impact on our life in various ways. Meanwhile, data generated from these platforms has created tremendous value not only to the business but also to the society. In addition to leveraging the data for business objectives, eCommerce researchers and scholars also bear the responsibility of contributing to the benefits of the general public by analyzing such data.



This special issue seeks data-enabled research that applies or develops computational and data science methods to address societal challenges in today’s interconnected world. We encourage research that analyzes publicly available data (e.g., from the Web or government agencies) or proprietary data (e.g., from business and organizations).



Potential topics include, but are not limited to:




  • Discrimination and bias in social media


  • Vulnerable population in disaster relief and infectious disease control


  • (Mis)Information during emergency responses


  • Equality and privacy in eCommerce recommender systems


  • Social justice in law enforcement


  • Equal access to business or life opportunities


  • Disparities and inequality in health, health literacy and healthcare


  • Healthcare management during emergencies


  • Donations and fundraising for charity


  • Environmental protection and sustainability



Authors are encouraged to email their papers’ abstracts to guest editors, so that the fit for this special issue can be evaluated, although this step is optional.
