It has been posited that information and communication technology (ICT) diffusion can be explained by national culture since individuals from different cultures think and behave differently toward the development and use of ICT. To the best of our knowledge, the impact of Schwartz’s model of cultural dimensions on ICT diffusion level has not yet be...
Article
Schwartz’s value theory (SVT) is widely used in a number of disciplines but infrequently in information systems (IS) research. The theory was intended to be applied at an individual level, unlike Hofstede’s cultural theory at national level. Schwartz’s ten low-order values (LOVs) can be combined into four high-order values (HOVs): self-enhancement...
Article
Security and privacy policies address consumer concerns related to security and privacy in e-commerce websites. As these policies represent only the vendor’s perspective, often there exists a mismatch between the stated and desired policy. Based on transaction cost theory, we speculate that business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C)...
