Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations

Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations
http://jiito.org/

The purpose of the Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations (JIITO) is to encourage authors to develop and publish quality papers that address in a balanced manner all three entities signified in its title: information, information technology (IT), and the organizational context. Other information systems journals commonly focus on either IT or on information, all but excluding the other. In contrast, JIITO gives equal treatment both to IT and information, while conceiving information broadly in terms of knowledge, wisdom, meaning, and data. Information and IT need to be studied in the context of tasks or processes, spanning over appropriate levels of analysis‹individual, group, organizational, interorganizational, community, and so on. JIITO welcomes investigations of organizations of any sort, any industry, and any relevant social domain. JIITO encourages articles that use rich, detailed accounts of information and IT. Any topic and any philosophical perspective that help us to make sense of information and IT in organizations is welcome. Of particular interest are empirical studies that explain how organizations cope, prosper, change, fail with respect to using, managing, designing and adopting information systems. In the conceptual realm, JIITO encourages articles that take a critical look at advent, genesis and and uses of models that have influenced IS research for considerable time.
