We are proud to announce that the International Journal of Scholarly Papers “Transformations in Business & Economics” (TIBE) is expanding its activities and scope of publication, opening the Library of TIBE. It will constitute supplements, published as a corporate part of the Journal, applying the same high standards of paper selection.

The aim of introducing supplements to TIBE is two-fold: firstly, to offer a constructive basis for publishing quality papers from international scientific conferences, symposiums an forums; secondly, to serve as a medium for publishing scientific monographs in the form of a supplement to enrich our TIBE Library by pioneering this process in Lithuania. We would orientate our efforts towards promotion of scientific thought from the CEEC region as indicated in our corporate mission, in order to foster the exchange of innovative ideas and conceptual insights from a broad spectrum of social sciences, namely economics and business management, incorporating scientific achievements and progressive approaches from the interdisciplinary perspective as well.

The founder and publisher of TIBE – Kaunas Faculty of Humanities, Vilnius University (VU KHF), Lithuania – made the first step towards this goal. On 18-19th May, 2007, VU KHF organized the First International and Interdisciplinary Scientific Conference FIHUSO-2007. The interdisciplinary approach was successfully applied within the following context of merging Physical Sciences (Informatics) – represented by the acronym „FI“ in the title of the conference, the Humanities (Philology) – the acronym „HU“, and Social Sciences (Economics and Management) – the acronym „SO“, which was sought to reflect the interrelationship and cross-field research issues in globalisation of economies, political and socio-economic realities, cultural-ethnic-linguistic crossroads, applications in business informatics, innovation management in the educational system.

Therefore, Supplement A for Volume 6, No 2(12), 2007 is dedicated to the interdisciplinary approach of Social Sciences, namely Management and Administration, with a focus on transformational processes in theory and practice of the following issues:

  1. transformational challenges in commerce are researched in the light of foreign trade by SMEs; financial decision-making; market reforms and society’s expectations; advertising business strategies; social and ethical considerations of international commercials;
  2. transformational issues of organisational and network structures are investigated within the framework of corporate commitment; marketing channels conflict solutions; improvements in municipality’s governance through innovation and democracy; women’s movement tendencies in Lithuania;
  3. information technologies are perceived as a vital tool for transforming private businesses, NGOs and the public sector in strengthening their competencies and becoming more accessible to the general public, business partners and related institutions.

We hope that the new boundaries, which we have opened for the scientific world and business practitioners would expand both horizontally and vertically to capture innovative ideas and to offer new applications and prospects in the cognition of development economics.
