The ebook seeks complicated contributions that may mix theoretical insights and empirical event by means of providing an in depth exam of IMN and, additional, ION from quite a few views. This e-book can be utilized as a reference fabric for scholar-practitioners, company executives, and collage researchers who have to deepen their knowing at the value and impression of IMN and ION in addition to their improvement. The publication is necessary simply because there are few reference/resource fabrics to be had regarding IMN and ION.
