IEEE Professional Communication: Global business communication

The June issue of IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication takes an international focus. This special issue looks at some interactions of culture, communication behaviors, and multimedia technology. . I found particularly interesting in the Zahed, Van Pelt, Song article, "A conceptual framework for international Web design". Here's a partial TOC:

  • Technical innovation and global business communication: an introduction
  • A conceptual framework for international web design.
  • The local and the global: An exploration into the Finnish and English websites of a Finnish company.
  • Exploratory research on the role of national and professional cultures in a distributed learning project.
