Reviews and Testimonials

The International Journal of Sociotechnology and Knowledge Development addresses investigations into the relationship between social and technical aspects of organizations. The concept of sociotechnolgy suggests that information systems are primarily social systems supported by technology. This journal offers an important venue for researchers to publish peer-reviewed articles which apply this perspective to their research.
