Submit a Paper to the International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI)

Published Quarterly. Est. 2005.

An increasing amount of research is being done in the area where technology and humans meet. The success or failure of technologies, the question whether technology helps humans to fulfill their goals or whether it hinders them is in most cases not a technical one. Even though this problem has been recognized in many academic disciplines that deal with technology, we are still far from being able to present a set of theories that would allow us to understand the interaction of technology and humans and to put it to practical use. The International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI) aims to provide a platform for leading research that addresses issues of human and technology interaction. IJTHI seeks original contributions concerning any aspect of technology and human interaction dealing with the development, usage, failure, success, policies, strategies, and applications of them. The journal invites contributions from both scholars and practitioners involved in research, management, and the utilization of technology and human interaction.

The Editors-in-Chief of the International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, the coverage and the guidelines for submission to IJTHI.

Mission

The primary mission of the International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IJTHI) is to be instrumental in the improvement and development of the theory and practice of technology and human interaction, appealing to both practicing managers and academics. The research that the journal intends to publish should therefore be interdisciplinary and include aspects from a wide variety of disciplines. These disciplines range from more technical ones, such as computer science, engineering, or information systems, to non-technical descriptions of technology and human interaction from the point of view of sociology or philosophy. Apart from being interdisciplinary, the journal also aspires to provide a publication outlet for research questions and approaches that are novel and may find it difficult to be published in established journals following a rigid and exclusive structure. It is open to all research paradigms, be they empirical or conceptual, but requires that they be accessible and reflected. The journal also encourages the submission of high quality syntheses across research in different specialties that are interesting and comprehensible to all members of the IS community and related disciplines.
