The limits of internationalisation in e-commerce

Grant, Robert M. and Bakhru, Anjali (2004). The limits of internationalisation in e-commerce. European Business Journal, 16(3) pp. 95–104.

Account must be taken of local and national influences together with the fact that the particular economic characteristics of the Internet represent only one element of electronic commerce.
