(First paragraph) Electronic markets and networked business is one of most challenging areas for industry and research communities. Electronic markets have evolved from the classic article on the Electronic market hypothesis published in Communications of the ACM in 1987 to the highly integrated and collaborative e-business such as Alibaba (Malone et al. 1987;Wangetal. 2008). This evolution has reshaped the ways of doing business and supply chain networks (Peruzzini and Stjepandić 2018). In last two decades, we have seen how novel and dynamic electronic markets applications have been bringing about a variety of new developments, new organizational forms and shapes in respective industries. In the last decade, one of the most fundamental trends is the emergence of markets such as China, India, Brazil, and Russia as drivers of global economic growth (Li 2013). The emerging markets account for more andmoreworld exports. Emerging markets including the emerging market country classifications have been defined in the literature (Atilgan et al. 2016). We believe that there are significant opportunities for improving our understanding of electronic markets in emerging economies, in ways that also advance theories of electronic markets and their impact on both developed and developing (emerging) economies.
