Abstract

In this paper we assess the publication base and the research trends in information technology specifically in transition economies. A transition economy is an economy that is in the long-term process of moving from a centrally planned to a market driven system. Although information technology is the principal enabler for global connectedness and critical for firms in transition economies to maintain competitiveness, only relatively little research is being reported that addresses the issues specific to effectively employing information technology in transition economies. By reviewing current publications and identifying the research trends we try to point to existing gaps and the needs and opportunities for further research.
