Welcome to Education, Business and Society: Contemporary Middle Eastern Issues (EBS). Cyber space is one of the central themes of this issue and Leila Canaan Messara, Silva Karkoulian and Richard McCarthy open the journal with an investigation of cyber slacking particularly referring to its effect on work satisfaction. Dr Leila’s article is followed by an examination of the nature of entrepreneurship in digital space that was conducted by Najmeh Hafezieh, Peyman Akhavan and Farjam Eshraghian and the theme is continued by Muneer Abbad, Rami Abbad and Malik Saleh who focus on the limitations of e-commerce in a Jordanian context. Departing from the cyber world but continuing the link with Jordan, Mahmoud Alquraan and Abed Alnasar Aljarah’s investigate the psychometric properties of the Jordanian version of the metamemory in adulthood questionnaire. Finally, in total contrast to what has gone before, Sabina Cerimagic examines the effect of the cross-cultural training of UAE-based Australian project managers on their ability to adapt to their new environment and on their work performance. We hope you enjoy this issue of EBS.
