Details I have analyzed the diffusion of cloud computing in emerging countries by jointly considering innovation traits of cloud computing and institutional characteristics of emerging countries. This study highlights the importance of institutional factors in facilitating the diffusion of cloud computing. Moreover, using cross-national data on the adoption of biotech crops, I found that the adoption of biotech crops by countries is a process oriented towards goals and driven by resource dependence, social comparisons, and relationships.
