Over the past year, Electronic Commerce Research (ECR) has revised its research focus and benchmarks to more accurately reflect the impact that electronic markets have had on nearly every sector of modern life. Using ECR and several related journals as seeds, we have provided a co-citation study of the research landscape and the journals and people who are central to moving the field forward. Our studies revealed six clusters (cliques) of researchers pursuing distinct programs and topics in Electronic Commerce Research. Our research further elaborated the structure of research within the smaller group of management information systems journals. This research article briefly summarizes these findings in a set of bibliometric maps.
